We’ve all seen the excellent work the brabus people have done. There is no doubt that this trainer stands out in its exclusive details applied in an artisanal way and that it was born back in 1977. So far we have known excellent preparations both in boats and also in luxury cars such as Mercedes. However, the high-performance tuning company has decided to venture into the world of motorcycles and has chosen a high-performance model of the KTM brand, the 1200 Duke Super RR as the basis for creating its first two-wheel preparation and has baptized it as the Brabus 1300 R, which will be produced in two shades and of which only 77 units of each will be manufactured, this alluding to the year of the founding of the company. Its price starts from 42,500 euros, so it will not be available to many.
In two body colors
The new Brabus 1300 R incorporates on its exterior the design language “Black and Bold” (Dark and Bold) that is reflected in two color combinations on the fuel tank: Signature Black (black) or Magma Red (red). Its exterior elements have been replaced by Brabus’s own elements that have been made of carbon fiber. The headlight has also been replaced by a rounded one that gives it a more muscular view. Other important elements are the Monoblock Z forged wheels next to a heated seat with hexagon-shaped stitching.
Its cycle consists of a tubular chassis that has been painted in black and incorporates wp APEX semi-active suspensions that offer 6 damping modes: Comfort, Street, Sport, Track and Advanced. It also has Auto mode that acts according to the conditions of the asphalt or road. For its part, it continues to have the five driving modes that the KTM 1290 Super Duke RR brings: Street, Sport, Rain, Performance and Track.
Its engine remains intact and remains the V-twin block that produces 180 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 140 Nm at 8,000 rpm. This fits a new double exhaust system made by Brabus and is coated in matt black ceramic. Its weight is reduced a little with this preparation and now stands at 175 kg.
