KTM confirms X-Bow R for spring 2011

News of KTM’s upgraded X-Bow appeared back in September, so we’re pleased to hear KTM are on target for its introduction in early 2011. The X-Bow has long been one of our favourite sports cars, but we’ve worried about its long-term viability given the high cost of producing its exotic carbon-fibre frame.

KTM makes the X-Bow winter-proof

We’ve enjoyed many miles in the X-Bow this year – in the popular feature One Vision we explored five different ways of delivering driving thrills and of course our Silverstone Track Test where it set one of the quickest times of the year around the GP circuit. Its virtues are many, from its lightness of touch to the precision of its controls, but one thing we’ve never felt compelled to praise the X-Bow for is its comfort in cold weather.
