After having been on the market for approximately two years now, the KTM X-BOW line-up will be supplemented with the introduction of the 'R'¬Ě model in the upcoming year. The engine for this even more powerful version comes again from Audi '‚Äú but it will be exactly the same engine used among others in the actual Audi S3. Changes to the engine electronics and peripheral devices will boost the performance up to 300 horsepower. Additionally, a considerably lower positioning and a modified mounting of the engine will lead to even higher cornering speeds and increased driving precision. In addition, two optional equipment packages should customize the X-BOW 'R'¬Ě as ideally as possible to the requirements of the customers: The road legal and homologated 'Sport'¬Ě package, as well as the 'Race'¬Ě package, which is optimised for track use. The packages each include a vast number of completely new developed parts, which increase the performance of the car dramatically. Many of these parts will be also available separately in the PowerParts program, so all current KTM X-BOW owners will enjoy the benefit of the new developments. The prototype shown, pictured at a first rollout on the legendary N√É¬ľrburgring Nordschleife, has nearly all new parts installed, which will raise the enthusiasm amongst the numerous X-BOW customers and which should attract many more new customers.
Detailed information, prices and pictures will follow at the beginning of next year.
