The X-Bow is the first automobile produced by KTM, the successful Austrian motorcycle manufacturer. This model debuted in March 2007 at the Geneva Auto Show as a prototype but the official product was put on the production line in June 2008. KTM sold 350 X-Bows by the end of the year and is expecting to sell approximately 600 units in 2009.
KTM celebrated the first anniversary of its X-Bow range at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show with the unveiling of five different models: X-BOW Street, X-BOW Clubsport, X-BOW GT4, X-BOW Superlight and X-BOW ROC.
The 2.0l four-valve engine delivers 310 Nm of torque between 2,000 and 5,500 rpm, achieving the peak output levels of 240 horsepower at 5,500 rpm. And it is street legal, too...
