ABT Sporline 300 HP upgrade for X-Bow backed by KTM

KTM has released the Great Britain price levels for the performance upgrade that raises the output of the 2.0 liter TFSI engine of the X-BOW to 300 horsepower from 240 and the maximum amount of torque to 400 Nm from 310 Nm, as well as backing up ABT Sportline`s aftermarket performance kit for the X-BOW. The upgrade costs 5300 pounds (around 8700 euros) including fitting and VAT, and is sold as an aftermarket package that can be retrofitted to all X-BOW models. The aftermarket package also comes with a two year warranty.

The ABT-modified X-BOW accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds, which is practically faster by 0.4 seconds in comparison to the factory model with 240 horsepower. This performance is possible thanks to the vehicle`s higher power-to-weight ratio that has been increased to 380 horsepower per tone.

KTM`s X-BOW Manager for the UK area said that ``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``. He continued by stating that ``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 the X-BOW is recognized``.
