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.
