The RC8 R benefits massively from racing, with the Superbike factory riders closely collaborating with the developers and providing invaluable input from the analysis of their IDM Superbike races. Optimised flywheel masses let the 75° twin rev extremely smoothly.
The dual-plug ignition ensures a perfect combustion control, with the pleasant side effect of a high output, peaking at 175 hp and 127 Nm of torque. An eccentric height adjustment bracket in the rear suspension linkage adds more set-up options. The carefully tuned suspension ensures a composed and comfortable ride even on public roads. As the first uncompromising hypersports tire, the Dunlop SportSmart delivers a first-rate performance on the track, in everyday road riding and in the wet. All this makes the RC8 R a consistently developed package for a single purpose – great fun on every mile!
