Red, Blue, Green & Black – these are motorcycle colors, right? Well, orange definitely needs to be considered a motorcycle color too. Full discretion first, I’ve a thing for KTM bikes. Maybe it’s the euro origins of the company, their exemplary branding and strong corporate identity or the fact that nobody can pronounce the names KTM stands for – Kraftfahrzeuge Trunkenpolz Mattighofen, originally and then Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen.

This weeks POW! is from a Review of the 2008 KTM RC8 1190 by Tor Sagen earlier this year. Peuker/Buenos Dias on photography bringing some spectacular imagery of the bike in action, Tor in the cockpit, with some impressive scenery to boot! Be sure to pickup these Free desktop wallpapers after the jump!
