This is the 2nd generation KTM 690 RC4 R by German tuners Mototech.

I wrote about the 1st generation RC4 R here. In short, it’s a KTM 690 that has been modified for track use (as a race bike not a naked!).  Really cool and innovative,  check it out here.

This ‘Type 2’ was developed in collaboration with 2012 French Supermono Champion, Jean-Claude Paul with the sole objective of defending his title in 2013.

What’s new about this second generation you ask? How about a self-supported aluminium rear that also doubles as a fuel tank? Pretty innovative if you ask me.  And of course race-proven Akrapovic exhaust completes the set-up.

I’ll ask the Mototech guys for more details and post again if I get any news here!  Comments and feedback below!
