KTM X-Bow news - Geneva show: KTM X-Bow -2007

Read more on:

Austrian
motorbike manufacturer KTM can usually be found showing off its two-wheeled
creations at motorshows.

But
this is the X-Bow, KTM’s first shot at a four-wheeler and an impressive start
in our book.

Originally
developed in conjunction with Audi, KTM took full responsibility for the
project after rejecting Audi’s demands for more on-board safety kit.

However,
the X-Bow is powered by an Audi-derived 2.0-litre TFSI that in base spec will
develop around 220bhp. KTM says it can spice this up to over 300bhp, which
should give phenomenal performance given the X-Bow’s kerb weight of 700kg.

Like
the Ariel Atom, it’s a no-frills machine. The X-Bow doesn’t even get such
niceties as a windscreen, but helmets come supplied as standard.
