Earlier this week, we received an email (posted after the jump) from KTM announcing plans to bring two new vehicles, along with two more variations of the X-Bow, to the Geneva Motor Show. Unfortunately, the motorcycle-manufacturer-turned-track-toy-purveyor hasn't released any details about what's on the way, but a quick look into the Autoblog archives gives us a glimpse of what to expect.

Back in July, reports surfaced that KTM was working on a harder, faster X-Bow that will use the Audi S3's 261-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter, and will be offered in both open-top and fixed-roof variants. KTM is also rumored to be hooking up with Baja Auto, India's third-largest automaker, on a eco-friendly runabout that sports seating for four in a package that's about the size of a Tuk-Tuk. We'll go out on a limb and say that KTM will unveil an off-road version of the X-Bow that's ready to tackled Dakar, but we'll know for sure the first week of March.



PRESS RELEASE

As KTM accelerates into its second year with the lightweight X-BOW sportscar, it will present two world premieres at the 79th International Auto Show in Geneva (3rd - 15th of March). KTM will also reveal a redefined product range that offers a tiered line-up of the radical carbon fibre automobile.

Trade visitors will receive all the news from the young Austrian car manufacturer on 3rd and 4th of March, while visitors on the public days (5th to 15th March) will be able to see the latest variants of the first automobile in KTM's 50-year history, which has set an undisputable milestone in the supercar segment.
