i was just cruising on ktm canada's website and saw this!
1190 RC8 R Akrapovic Limited Edition
i do not know any details about this bike being available but it something i would be after! i am going to have to talk to my local dealer and see if it maybe available in canada this year or 2011.
i called blackfoot in calgary last year regarding the rc8 r and they said no dice on getting one in canada, period (because of the economy). fast-track into this year and its on there website!
