Renowned automotive tuner Brabus and KTM made waves in the motorcycle world by jointly announcing the launch of their highly anticipated and incredibly exclusive creation: the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition.
- The release marks the grand finale of their trilogy of collaborative endeavors, following the successful launches of the Brabus 1300 R and Brabus 1300 R Edition 23.
- The Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition is truly a collector’s dream, as only 50 of these exceptional motorcycles will ever be produced and made available to enthusiasts worldwide.
The production split includes 25 units in the striking Onyx Black colorway and an additional 25 units in the elegant Diamond White. These limited-edition motorcycles boast captivating accents finished in what Brabus aptly dubs “Frozen Gold” and feature an even more extensive array of special Brabus carbon fiber bodywork.
All three collaborations between Brabus and KTM have been centered around the formidable KTM 1290 Super Duke R Evo as their base. The initial release, the Brabus 1300 R, was launched in February 2022 and comprised a total of 154 bikes, offered in two distinct colors.
Astonishingly, this initial release sold out within mere minutes. Following that success, the Brabus 1300 R Edition 23 came into existence, featuring 290 bikes, and, like its predecessor, it sold out almost instantly.
The heart of the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition beats to the rhythm of the KTM LC8 V-twin engine, which generates an impressive 180hp @ 9,500 rpm and 140Nm @ 8,000 rpm.
While Brabus exercised its creative freedom in many aspects of this masterpiece, the suspension duties are performed by a WP Apex semi-active suspension system, offering both automatic and manually adjustable modes. \
The braking system consists of a pair of Brembo Stylema 4-piston calipers up front paired with a 320mm floating disc, complemented by a Brembo 2-piston caliper and a single 240mm disc in the rear.
Standard features include multiple ride modes, a quick-shifter, cornering, and supermoto ABS, and an adaptive brake light.
The design of the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition is a testament to its exclusivity, featuring a distinctive Brabus LED headlight, side fairings adorned with MotoGP-inspired winglets, a front spoiler, and a solo seat with an integrated license plate bracket.
The wheels are the unique Brabus Monoblock Z “Gold Platinum” forged alloy units, crafted exclusively for this motorcycle. Additional Brabus-crafted details encompass a CNC triple clamp, adjustable CNC brake and clutch levers, CNC aluminum brake and clutch reservoir caps, adjustable CNC foot pegs, bar end mirrors, and a slip-on dual exhaust system adorned with Frozen Gold accent rings.
The seat itself is a work of art, featuring an exclusive Brabus leather quilted “Diamond Rising” pattern. A special Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece badge on the seat pad adds an extra layer of exclusivity.
Buyers of the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition will also receive a tailor-made Brabus indoor motorcycle cover, floor mat, and a carbon key box, emphasizing the bespoke nature of this motorcycle.
The Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition is priced at EUR41,930 (RM207k).
