According to our sister publication, Motocross Action Magazine, the spectacular, revolutionary, lightweight super sports car from Austria, the four wheel, KTM X-Bow (pronounced Cross-Bow) is finally set to arrive in the United States soon. It will use an Audi-powered, 300-horsepower mounted in 1750-pound light chassis. The track-day weapon will be sold in the United States for the 2018-2019 season.
Wether they will make a street legal version to go after the Can-Am Spyder market or the potential Polaris Slingshot buyers is still unknown. No matter what, the fact that four wheeled KTM machines will be hitting the U.S. shores is a good sign that they are serious looking at the U.S. for more than just motorcycle sales. Additionally, KTM recently announced they were doing a joint venture with CF Moto on a new manufacturing facility big enough to build larger machines on a massive scale. Read about that HERE.
While these four wheel vehicles look impressive, their 300 HP Audi motor with 6-speed gear box is actually a a full 2 liters which is more than double size but not double the HP of a current turbo charged UTV. None the less, we always get excited to see KTM colors with four wheels under it. See the specs of the four X-Bow models at https://www.ktm.com/x-bow
