AX - Extreme off-roader uses Motocross technology
The KTM AX was a concept created by students and staff at FH Joanneum
University in Austria. The AX was one of six concepts created by the
university in collaboration with KTM, the Austrian motorcycle and
Designed by Markus Klug and Lukas Fuchs, the KTM AX is a radical off-road
vehicle which uses the experience KTM has building successful motocross
bikes and translates it into a four-wheeled vehicle. The AX also uses
the purist nature of the KTM
X-Bow as inspiration for the angular and minimalist bodywork.
Powering the KTM AX is a hybrid propulsion system which utilizes four
in-wheel electric motors to drive the wheels. With individually steerable
wheels, massive ground clearance, reinforced tires and long travel
suspension the AX would offer superb off-road capability and agility.
The frame of the KTM AX consists of a lightweight spaceframe structure
into which the individual components are placed. The built in rollover
protection is an additional safety feature for the two occupants.
