Its engine, dubbed LC8-V2, has also been reworked and features new cooling routes and a bigger radiator. Though the official power figures haven’t revealed, it is expected that the motor will make close to 180-190 BHP of maximum power.KTM is expected to debut this motorcycle at this year’s EICMA in Milan, which will be between November 5-10 and should go on sale in the first half of 2020.
