The KTM RC8 is in today's bike of the day slot. It's a bike which went against the standard sportsbike conventions, focussing instead on road manners and useability. But that doesn't mean it's a pussy cat.

Seller says

"Lovely condition RC8, the bike is totally stock just with a minor chip to the right fairing paint as shown in the pictures. Runs and handles beautifully. Comes with 3 keys and a Datatool alarm with 2 fobs. KTM service history, 2 former owners. Taxed until Feb '17 and MOT until March '17, Bridgestone S20 Evo tyres with plenty of life left in them."

You can buy this 2012 KTM here for £6000.

MCN says

"As a sportsbike the RC8 is often overlooked in favour of more exotic and race-focussed competition, but what it lacks in pure track ability it makes up for with great road manners. The 1148cc V-twin delivers its 150bhp in a smooth curve, with a strong top end, making fast riding effortless. The suspension is almost spot on for the road."
