KTM RC6 in the pipeline

New Austrian supersport machine to be powered by an in-line four - apparently

Sources say KTM's new RC6 is to be powered by an in-line four

ACCORDING TO the Dutch motorcycle writers (and they’ve seldom been wrong on such things) KTM are already working on the follow-up to the firm’s RC8 V-twin superbike – the RC6.

The four-cylinder, 600cc bike is apparently already well along the design road and is being touted as a race-bike for the road.

World Supersport title, anyone?

I reckon it's a bloody wind up, as that engine looks like a V-Twin to me! - Ed
