I dag ble den nye racing-utgaven av RC8 vist fram i Milano. RC8-R har noe skarpere motor, kortere akselavstand og lengre forsprang. Alt for mer lek på bane.

Mens RC8 har 153 Hk og 120 Nm har man økt denne til 163 Hk og 123 Nm i RC8-R. Dette er oppnådd med økt sylindervolum (47 kubikk) og økt kompresjon.

Foruten dette er syklene så å si klin like. De kommer begge med WP-dempere foran og bak og bremser fra Bremo. Fattige 2 Kg skiller de to utgavene, i RC8-R sin favør.

Spesifikasjoner for begge utgaver under bildene.
