    That's bad ass, will it ever make it here? Their last super bike didn't, can't hardly even get there dirt bikes any longer. On a different note, that Duke reminds me of this little gem.

    Ooh, yeah lucky me being in Italy they're getting a couple in in the shop a little ways away. Word is they're probably gonna release this one to the states, but not until maybe 2014

    I thought KTM's first and only superbike is the RC8 which is stateside. Which other superbike are you referring to? Is it a euro only model?

    I'd say the RC8 is just a sportbike compared to this Super Duke, it's SUPER!

    That pic was snapped by my brother in Austin TX dealship last weekend, so must already be here. I wasn't aware the RC8 was ever imported, buddy that's a KTM mechanic told me they were not gonna import them, seems like they started in 2009 in very small numbers. Again, they can't hardly get any dirt bikes from KTM for some reason.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought our statement was towards the Aprilla I posted, per the "I'm in Itlay" statement, not the Katoom.

    Where in N. Alabama are you, Shoals is where my buddy works, (the one that told me they couldn't lay there hands on any bikes) must have been a between model thing. My wife works for the guy that owns Shoals (Long Lewis Ford) so I get pretty good deals there.

    I have watched that video at least 20 times. I plan on ordering one as soon as a release date is announced. I'm just wondering if they will take that engine and put it into an RC8R.
