The production ready X-Bow will bow at the 78th Geneva Motor Show next month. A special-edition called the X-Bow Dallara will be on display. It's one of just 100 being built. Extras for the special edition include a limited-slip differential, carbon fibre panels and a specially-tuned racing chassis. Modifications have been made to make the vehicle street-legal, and special graphics and a serial number complete the package- which is sure to become a collector's item.
KTM will produce the X-Bow at a new plant in Graz, Austria, and expects to sell somewhere in the ballpark of 1,000 units per year. Demand forecasts were originally lower- though once flooded with positive feedback and deposits from anxious customers, KTM decided to create the new plant and increase production. The plant will also produce the company's new four-wheel off-road ATV's.
Primary competition for the lightweight two-seat rocket racer is the famous Ariel Atom.
