The KTM X-Bow is the motorbike manufacturer’s foray into cars. Intended for track day use rather than every day driving; luxuries are at a minimum and build is almost exclusively from carbon fibre. Power comes from the magnificent high revving Honda Vtec F20C engine that also powers the Honda S2000 and Arial Atom.
The X-Bow is an impressive performer and has exotic modern looks. It comes in at a hefty price, but this hasn’t stopped it selling. Production has increased from a planned 500 per year to 1000. Despite its raw looks, it is reassuring to drive but this doesn’t make it any less effective.
