1979 KTM MC80

In Austria, Off-Road by AbhiLeave a Comment

Here’s your chance to beat up on some vintage Maicos with a fully redone KTM MC80. Plenty of the bike is still original, though the plastics, graphics, tires, and brakes are new. You’ll also get rebuilt stock Ohlins shocks to complement the original Bing carb, Motoplat ignition, and Magura controls. I feel like I’ve seen plenty of MC80s, which feature …

In Austria, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post-Listing Update: Despite being relisted, this RC8R got no love at $19,900. In 2010, KTM started importing the RC8R to the US. To celebrate, they released two limited edition models, both of which had just 25 examples produced. One was the Akrapovic Edition (reader Zack B. actually found one for sale just 3 days ago), the other is this post’s …

Rally Raid – Modified 2012 KTM 690 Enduro

In Austria, Dual-Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

If you’re looking for a true off-roader from your production dual-sport, I’m not sure it gets better than the KTM 690 Enduro.

2012 KTM RC8-R

In Austria, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

KTM does not have much of a street presence in the United States – but with bikes like the RC8-R it’s hard to understand why that’s the case. This distinctive-looking Superbike is full of high-end components and it makes around 175hp.

In Austria, Sport by Abhi4 Comments

4-17 Update: This KTM Duke 620 got no love at $3,800, but it’s back up for sale at the same opening bid here on eBay. KTM has always enjoyed a reputation for making some of the best off-road bikes out there, but in recent years they’ve also taken on the status of a premiere supermoto manufacturer, as well. This all …
