The KTM X-Bow GT is the first X-Bow variant to feature a windscreen and doors
5 March 2013

A new KTM X-Bow, with more focus on on-road driving, has premiered at the Geneva motor show.

No official information is available, but these official images show the KTM X-Bow GT features a wraparound windscreen. As a result, the car will also feature windscreen wipers and a method in which to heat it. The X-Bow will also be equipped with doors for the first time.

Power is likely to come from the same 237bhp four-cylinder turbocharged Audi engine, mated to a six-speed gearbox.

It is not currently known how the addition of the windscreen will affect the standard car’s aerodynamics, which generates almost 200kg of downforce at 124mph.

Our Verdict


The KTM X-Bow offers eccentric looks and sharp handling but it's an expensive first effort from the motorcycle maker

I like this, i think it's an improvement, the color is great too,and the detailing isn't over the top FOR a car like this......

Considering the height of the windscreen and the structural integrity it must have (for roll over puroposes), I am surprised they haven't offered it with a token Posche Speedster style roof.




It's all about the twisties........
