The BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 boasts a luxurious design, typical of BRABUS’ attention to detail and ultra-limited exclusivity. It’s a combination of pure luxury and undaunted naked bike precision that represents the best of both brands. The motorbike features iconic BRABUS design elements such as two legacy paint schemes, high-end carbon body elements, forged BRABUS Monoblock Z wheels, and a stylish bespoke seat crafted with expert attention to detail by BRABUS interior specialists in Bottrop, Germany. The result is an exceedingly unique and sporty character that instantly captures attention.
Built on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO platform, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 offers a cutting-edge riding experience, uncompromising ergonomics, and exceptional LC8 V-Twin engine producing 132 kW / 180 hp at 9,500 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm out of its 1,301 cubic centimeters. The BRABUS dual-pipe slip-on exhaust adds to its unmistakable character and massive sound.
The motorbike retains its ‘Black and Bold’ identity with new features such as a distinctive headlight mask, redesigned side panels and air-ducts, and BRABUS Signature Stripes in the air scoop. The ultra-lightweight carbon fiber one-piece undertray features an all-new pillion seat cover that matches the body color and gives the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 a more compact and powerful silhouette. The handlebar end mirrors have been purpose-built to complement the motorbike’s appearance and allow for precise adjustments.
The BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 is equipped with BRABUS Monoblock Z forged wheels, inspired by the design of the brand’s exclusive 1-Second-Wow supercars. The motorbike is offered in two color schemes, “Superblack” and “Stealth Gray,” and production is limited to 145 units for both variants, available in selected markets.
From a technical standpoint, the motorbike uses the latest WP APEX semi-active suspension technology, allowing riders to select between six dedicated damping modes at leisure or in AUTO mode, which adapts to road and riding conditions automatically.
