MCN Chief road tester Trevor Franklin has just arrived in Ronda, Spain for the first ride of the long-awaited KTM RC8 sports bike.

Checking in to the hotel Trev spotted the bike on display in the lobby and couldn’t resist taking a snap to send back.

He’s already checked and the weather is looking spot on for when he takes to the amazing Ascari circuit at 7am (UK time) tomorrow (February 25, 2008).

Trev will be sending back his first impressions of the bike as soon as he comes in from his first session on track so check back first thing to see how the bike handles on track, then check back later for the first ride on the road.
