KTM might not be planning to enter WSB with the new RC8 just yet, but it's hoping to use the machine in Superstock racing and has just unveiled the first race-prepared version of the stunning new superbike.

Complete with race fairings, rearsets and several other minor tweaks, the firm's racer is set to start testing in earnest next week.

Former German superbike champ and world superstock podium finisher Stefan Nebel is expected to ride the bike at selected races this year.
