Not Italian, I know. But, would u? Wouldn't u?
Anyone with previous experience.?

Had Aprilia Mille - loved it.
1098s - too small.
RC8 - I keep looking at them, and like.

I'm 6ft 3, tried S1000RR, too small too. I know about fuelling and gear selection issues on early KTM's, but these probs can be sorted.

Any comments welcome

I have a ktm rc8... always wanted on. Its a 2008 model registered in 22010. All issues sorted. Runs very well.
I have all settings on low & in comfort mode, but dont be mistaken our idea and ktm's idea of comfort mode a two different things!!!
I am 5' 4.5" ... bit of a girly bike for a tall bloke like you

Lol...

If your knees dont hit yer chin.. try it out!

Noticed an RC8 in DG - very clean and very high.
Looks like it would suit someone tall.

It looks nice and right colour combo. It also looks as if its cheaper on tick by about 500, than buying outright...??

I seen it too... same height as mine... you just adjust a few things and it lowers the seat height almost an inch ish. Around 31.5 inch seat height set at high.
The seat is wide.. give a try.. its still a twin! :lol2:
