Hot off the press today – details about the new performance package X-Bow customers have been eagerly awaiting.

  • KTM recommended ABT Sportsline upgrade for X-BOW
  • Develops 300bhp and 400Nm (295lb/ft)
  • X-BOW can reach 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds
  • Installation through X-BOW service partners

KTM X-BOW owners wishing to take the extraordinary performance of their ‘Ready to Race’ sportscar to the next level can now benefit from a significant power upgrade.

Developed by Audi engine tuning experts ABT Sportsline, the upgrade will raise the already-potent powertrain to 300bhp (from 240bhp in standard tune) and boost torque to a formidable 400Nm (from 310Nm), lifting the vehicle’s power-to-weight ratio to 380 bhp per tonne.  Most importantly, the ABT upgrade delivers these increases while retaining the dynamics of the vehicle and flexibility of the engine, which provides highly accessible peak power and torque over a wide rpm range.

As you can see from the graphs below (std 240bhp shown in black) the power delivery is very smooth.

Combined with the vehicle’s light weight and Dallara-developed chassis, the increased power will launch the X-BOW from rest to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds – compared to 3.9 seconds with the engine’s standard 240bhp configuration.   CLICK HERE to download our datasheets.

The upgrade – which is the tuning solution authorised by KTM for the X-Bow – will be sold as an aftermarket package and can be retrofitted to all X-BOW models.  The upgrade costs £5,300 fully fitted (incl. VAT) and comes with a two year warranty – a testament to the extensive development testing undertaken to meet KTM’s exacting requirements.

“X-BOW’s racecar-inspired chassis and sophisticated aerodynamic package have always given owners the ability to go head-to-head with some of the world’s most exotic machinery,” comments Jeff Lau, KTM’s X-BOW  Manager for the UK.  “This power upgrade will ensure that X-BOW owners seeking an even more extreme experience can do so in total confidence, building upon the quality assurance of the expert engineering and exquisite finish for which X-BOW is recognised.”

Existing owners interested in equipping their X-BOW with the factory-recommended power upgrade should contact their nearest service partner, where the upgrade can be installed by ABT’s specialist engineers.  Based in Kempten, Germany, ABT Sportsline is renowned for carrying out tuning work on Volkswagen Group powertrains. 

Hangar 111 are pleased to be working in conjunction with ABT and KTM to deliver this highly refined performance package to X-BOW owners.  Initial numbers are limited, so please contact us at technical@hangar111.com for further details on how you can book for installation.
