Brabus: two minutes and done

Brabus: two minutes and done


February 14th, Brabus has opened orders for a limited edition of the 1300 R, a tuned version of the KTM 1290 Super Duke R Evo. It took the studio less than two minutes to collect 154 purchase requests – that’s how many bikes were planned to be released. However, for those who didn’t place their order, there’s still a small chance to get a 1300 R: you can put your name on the waiting list on the KTM website, in case one of the customers refuses to buy as a result.

The Brabus 1300 R is based on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R EVO, but differs from the original in round LED optics, seat and fairing design. An adaptive suspension is announced for it, which allows you to adjust the stiffness of the shock absorber, and five driving modes.

The bike is powered by a stock 1301cc V-Twin engine that develops 180 horsepower and 140 Nm of torque. For the 1300 R, acceleration from standstill to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 3.2 seconds and a “maximum speed” of 270 kilometers per hour is claimed.

The cost of the Brabus 1300 R has not yet been announced, as well as the timing of the start of deliveries. What is known is that 77 bikes will be in Signature Black and the same number in Magma Red.

The list of additional equipment includes traction control, a system that reduces the likelihood of the rear wheel locking when shifting to a lower gear or when the throttle is abruptly closed, 17-inch Brabus wheels with Bridgestone Battlax S22 tires, and seat heating.
