The incredible X-BOW from Austrian motorbike manufacturer KTM may yet find its way into Australia, with KTM and ABT Sportsline announcing a new partnership today.
As an outlet partner, ABT Sportsline will not only take on the sale of the X-BOW – actually pronounced ‘cross-bow’ – but also all ongoing service work meaning Australian buyers would receive full factory support for the track day weapon.
Not content with leaving well enough alone, ABT Sportsline engineers are also currently working on a suitable power increase for the X-BOW, keen to improve its already blistering performance.
Powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI engine developing 177kW and weighing in at only 790 kilograms, the X-BOW shifts from zero to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds and is equally impressive around corners.
ABT Sportsline expects to coax as much as 221kW from the engine which is a massive 44kW jump, especially in a car made mostly from carbon fibre.
As the exclusive partner of ABT Sportsline in Australia, RamSpeed have not ruled out bringing this extraordinary car into the country.
