A few days ago, German-tuning house Brabus launched the company’s first-ever motorcycle build, the Brabus 1300 R, in partnership with KTM.
Brabus took the KTM 1290 Super Duke EVO and injected the firm’s DNA by upgrading every panel of the motorcycle with bespoke components.
While it may come with a hefty price, GBP34,549 (RM195k) to be exact, as it turns out, Brabus managed to sell all 154 units in less than two minutes!
Don’t worry if you missed out because there is a waiting list you can sign up for if you are hoping to get a second chance at the 1300 R.
The Brabus 1300 R is also clad with carbon fibre components, including the headlight shroud, tail and fuel tank.
Nevertheless, the Brabus 1300 R continue to get power to the rear wheel via the same 1,301cc V-Twin engine that makes 180hp and 140Nm.
Other features brought forward from the KTM include the PASC slipper clutch and PANKL transmission.
Other significant changes include a black paint job, a thicker saddle with heated seat function, and fully-adjustable hand levers.
Brabus also retains the same electronic package from the EVO, which includes:
- five riding modes
- throttle control
- traction control
- stabilitty control
- motor slip regulation
- anti-wheelie function
- cruise control
- ABS and Supermoto ABS
