BRABUS x KTM - The special collaboration continues

BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 - Back. In black.

13.02.2023 - The BRABUS 1-Second-Wow effect on two wheels is going dark with the world premiere of the next chapter in the collaboration between leading European motorcycle manufacturer KTM and world-renowned German luxury mobility brand BRABUS. The new BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 is luxurious design, BRABUS typical attention to detail and ultra-limited exclusivity.

For the first time, this highly exclusive motorbike is available in “Superblack” and “Stealth Gray” – two legacy colorways, that have defined generations of BRABUS supercars. Two identities, that encapsulate the essence of confident BRABUS performance, our heritage and our history like no other. Production will be limited to 145 units for each color variation, opening the door to an elite range of 290 BRABUS Night Riders. 

This black and bold luxury naked bike was purpose-built to make a statement, while maintaining and enhancing the ‘badass’ 1-Second-Wow design introduced by its predecessor in every detail. Around the striking bodywork, brand new highlight features such as the distinctive headlight mask, complete with exposed-carbon side fairing, power domes as well as BRABUS Signature Stripes in the air scoop accentuate the Edition 23’s unique face. Redesigned side panels and air-ducts serve as a further homage to decades of experience in processing prepreg carbon fiber.

Sharing the same technology platform as its predecessor, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 is equipped with the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO’s 1,301 cc V-Twin engine producing 180 hp at 9,500 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm. As the benchmark of V-Twin evolution, this high-end configuration offers excellent power delivery – designed for enthusiasts. The BRABUS dual-pipe slip-on exhaust underscores its unmistakable character as well as its massive sound.

To ensure you’re rolling in style no matter where the road may take you, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 features BRABUS Monoblock Z forged wheels. State-of-the-art manufacturing processes and a brand-new finish in “Platinum Black” ensure a hallmark BRABUS look as well as maximum strength. Semi-active WP suspension technology transforms this luxurious motorbike into an agile corner chaser at the push of a button, featuring electronically controlled solenoid valves for variable damping.

Drawing inspiration from our range of BRABUS supercars, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 offers the best in high-end technology. For maximum control, this exceptional naked bike features innovative traction control, anti-wheelie functionality and selectable driving modes that adapt to any environment and mood. These developments have been fine-tuned to provide more precise feedback from the engine and optimal intervention from the safety systems.
