KTM BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 Announced – Limited To Just 290 Units, RM198k

KTM and German tuning company BRABUS continued their partnership for 2023 with the introduction of the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23. 

  • KTM announced second collaboration with German tuning experts, BRABUS with the 1300 R Edition 2023. 
  • The 2nd-generation motorcycle continue to crank 180hp and 140Nm. 

Unveiled in Hanoi, Vietnam, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 2023 is an evolution of the original 1300 R introduced last year. 

Limited to just 145 units in Superblack and another 145 in Stealth Gray, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 23 is again build based on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R EVO. Similar to last year’s model, the 1300 R Edition 23 features a number of bespoke BRABUS components including carbon fiber and CNC-machined parts.

That said, the BRABUS 1300 R Edition 2023 looks similar to the original except for a few modifications mainly by adding more carbon fiber components including the headlight trim and air scoops. 

Completing the changes are new BRABUS Monoblock Z forged wheels with platinum black finish. 

Powering the beast is the same 1,301cc LC8 V-Twin engine that makes 180hp @ 9,500rpm and 140Nm @ 8,000rpm. Meanwhile, WP supplies the semi-active APEX suspension and steering damper. 

Priced at EUR42,500 (RM198k), all 290 units will be sold only via an online pre-order site which opens on February 16,2023. 

Fun fact, the previous BRABUS 1300 R sold out in just under two minutes.
