Saw this on a flemish motor forum...
The new 2013 Superduke...is a stripped RC8R
True or false?

Looks very bloody nice that, and the bonus is that they'll only be half the price brand new in 2 years :rotflmao:

The secret squirrel photos in mcn showed that they were dropping the underseat exhausts and using a conventional side mtd exhaust and a new engine

That pic looks great but alas, underseat pipes are out due to weight and centre of gravity issues.

New one is supposed to be a 1290cc too with at least 165 bhp. RC8 beater? I'd like to try a new Superduke if that is true.

Looks loverly. Is this an official photo though as I'm pretty sure to get through an mot/ sva test or whatever the seat unit as to extend as far or further than the wheel. Maybe they'll put a huge plate hanger on it?

It's only a mock up.. Have a look at the French Forum, Readytorace.fr and you'll see there are loads of photoshop suggestions that they're all "voting" on.. They're sadder than us!!

Lol. A naked rc8 would be pretty awesome though! Should keep the seat unit though imo, kind of iconic looking. I know someone putting on on a Gsxr fighter. That should look good

indeed, but on a positive note it will make the RC 8 design last longer!

That's luverly plus it'll give you RC8 owners something different to buy having filled your garages with ALL the different models available.. :)
