The XBOW from KTM is one of those machines that is made exclusively for those who want a pure track experience and although it can potter around the city, its best and at home on the track. The first version of the XBOW had 300 horses and was pretty fast and light and would satisfy almost anybody in search for a power packed ride. But Tiff Needell the Fifth Gear presenter is made from a different mould when it comes to driving and very few things impress him.

Then the folks at KTM decided to add 60 more horses to the equation and some minor tweaks to the gear box and release a RR version of the XBOW. So then how does the new XBOW fair against an in-house track specialist from KTM, the RC8 R? Check out the video below.
