Based on X-BOW R

KTM unveiled yesterday in Geneva the X-BOW GT which is already available on order from 72,500 EUR.

It's based on the KTM X-BOW R and comes with a road-legal soft-top which they say is easy to install. The GT version also features a baggage system providing approximately 50 liters of storage space. Various colors and PowerParts components are available upon request at an additional cost.

Power comes from an inline-four 2.0-liter gasoline engine with turbocharging, direct injection and an intercooler capable of providing 285 HP (210 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque at 3,200 rpm. Those ponies are sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, enabling the X-BOW GT to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 144 mph (231 km/h).

The vehicle is 3738mm long, 1915mm wide and 1202mm tall, with a 2430mm wheelbase and an 847 kg (1,867 lbs) weight. It rides on 17-inch front wheels with 205/40 tires and 18-inch rear alloys shod in 255/35 rubbers. KTM says the X-BOW GT has a fuel consumption of 8.3 liters / 100 km (28.3 mpg US / 34 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 189 g/km.
