Starting with KTM’s RC8 superbike, Australia tuner MC RoadRunner (MCRR) has created a hell of a naked speedster after over 200 hours of work. Is it easier to wheelie? Absolutely. Would you rather have this than a stock RC8R? You tell me.

A quick tangent about MCRR – their most recent build is a Norton Featherbed frame that’s had a Honda CBX engine shoved into it. Check it out here. But let’s get back to this bike. Mechanically, this bike is just about stock. The bodywork was the challenge, and the builder thought previous naked RC8R builds failed because other customizers just stripped the bike down without trying to match “the existing sharp KTM angles.” This bike got a titanium Akrapovic exhaust with dual mufflers, WP 48mm forks from a 990 Super Duke R, and Brembo brake master cylinder. I struggled to guess where the headlight was from – turns out it’s a Hyosung unit. For more information on the build, check out this review from the appropriately-named Australian magazine “Bike Review”.
