Piste-bashing in the KTM X-Bow R
More classic anniversary TG road trips: they said it couldn’t be done. A stupid idea. We went and did it anyway

The KTM has no ground clearance, so every ridge and crest simply lifts the nose (and front wheels) off the floor, making the X-Bow a cripplingly expensive and bizarrely overkilling sledge. The winter tyres clog pretty much instantly, and I end up steering in that light-fingered, lazy-but-constant side-to-side movement you see in late Fifties road movies.
