KTM has announced plans to team up with ABT Sportsline in order to provide sales and service for the motorcycle expert's radical X-Bow roadster. Besides providing a retail outlet for the X-Bow, ABT is currently developing a performance package for the car.

The standard X-Bow features Audi's much loved 2.0 TFSI engine which cranks out 240 hp (177 kW). The combination of the car's low weight of 790 kilograms and Audi's powerful engine means the X-Bow will rocket from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

When the ABT performance package becomes available, it will increase the roadster's output to 300 hp (221 kW) which should make the car's already stellar performance figures even better. Although the company failed to provide technical data for the new version, a 0-100 km/h time of 3.5 seconds or less seems highly plausible.
