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

KTM X-Bow

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

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........

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
