Experience The KTM X-Bow Straight From The Driver’s Seat In POV Video

Except for one special occasion, when its U.S. launch was announced, we haven’t heard that much from the KTM X-Bow since the facelifted iteration broke cover more than two years ago.

Until now, that is, as we stumbled upon a POV driving video of the track-focused car that shows what it’s like to drive it on public roads.

With nothing more than a helmet protecting his face from insects, the driver set off in the ‘R’ version of the X-Bow, which uses an Audi-sourced 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder. Its 300 PS (296 hp / 221 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) are dispatched to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox, which also comes from Audi.

In addition to the ‘R’, KTM is also offering the X-Bow in the ‘RR’ flavor. It’s powered by the same engine as the aforementioned model, but puts out 360 PS (355 hp / 265 kW). The GT version of the car allows you to ditch the helmet, whereas the GT4 is all about racing at the track.

That’s something U.S. buyers of the X-Bow will have to get used to, because it’s not street legal. For this American market, the Austrian company is offering it in two variants, called Comp R and Comp R 1st Edition, with 330 PS (325 hp / 242 kW) and 350 PS (346 hp / 258 kW), respectively, that can only be used on the track.
