BRABUS 1300 R EDITION 23 - Back. In Black.

Following our entry into the world of exclusive modern motorcycling, we are expanding the lineup of BRABUS 1-Second-Wow effects on two wheels with a new limited edition luxury naked bike. Go dark. Experience uncompromising elegance – Back. In Black.

The BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 is luxurious design, BRABUS typical attention to detail and ultra-limited exclusivity. An undeniable statement of style and individuality, conceptualized to merge pure, luxury infused energy with undaunted naked bike precision. Once again sharing a technology platform with the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO, it is defined by every cubic inch of its predecessor’s hypnotizing power, radiating an entirely unique identity of its own.

Since 1977, BRABUS has been a name synonymous with unbreakable tradition; and that’s what sets the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 apart. 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. Will you be one of them?

Limited to only 145 units each, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 is designed for those who relish the finer details of handbuild exclusivity.

All units of the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 have been pre-booked, however you can be added to a waiting list and will be notified should one become available!


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.

In keeping with the design’s sporty, aggressive flair, the ultra-lightweight carbon fiber one-piece undertray now features an all-new pillion seat cover. Adopting the design cues of the ignition cover and matching the body color, this upgrade gives the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 a more compact and powerful silhouette. In typical BRABUS fashion, the bespoke heated seat has been reupholstered to feature the exceedingly elegant BRABUS “Crest” stitching pattern. Finally, the all-new handlebar end mirrors were purpose-built to round off the motorbike’s one-of-a-kind appearance while allowing for millimeter precise adjustments at leisure.


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.

wheels & suspension. FORGED PERFORMANCE.

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. This offers a wide range of adjustment options - from maximum street comfort to an extremely stiff set-up for the racetrack. In addition, this intelligent suspension system features an AUTO mode, which automatically adjusts to conditions and driver input, keeping the focus on the road at all times.

Rideability & Tech. THE ROAD IS YOURS.

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.

Thus, the Quickshifter+ responds quicker and the traction control as well as the anti-wheelie function provide intuitive feedback, anywhere. All settings are easily accessible via switches, and all information is shown on a large, full-color TFT display featured with its own BRABUS “Signature Red” color scheme and start up animation.
