KTM X Brabus 1300 R Edition 23 Launched
The most recent version of Brabus’ original two-wheeler, which was created in Germany, is the Brabus 1300 R Edition 23. Before the 1300 R was released a little over a year ago, Bottrop, Germany-based Brabus was widely known for its modified Mercedes-Benz cars. It collaborated with the Austrian manufacturer KTM to develop its first two-wheeler.
Similar to the previous 1300 R, the KTM 1290 Super Duke R Evo’s 1,301cc, 180hp, and 140Nm V-Twin engine serve as the basis for this new Edition 23. It has Brembo Stylema callipers, WP steering dampers, electronically adjustable WP suspension on both ends, and Bridgestone S22 tyres because it shares all of the mechanical components with that bike.
Examples of components where Brabus has added its own individual touches include the bespoke twin-barrel end-can, the quilted seat carrying the Brabus brand, and its own graphics on the colour TFT dash.
All of the bodywork, with the exception of the fuel tank and the rear cowling, is made of carbon fibre. The moveable footpegs, brake, and clutch levers were all CNC-machined components. The LED turn indicators are different from those on the KTM, and the ones on the BMW S 1000 RR’s rear end also include a brake light.
Additionally, Brabus incorporated a quick-action throttle in the 1300 R Edition 23. Despite the bike’s distinctive personality, Brabus hasn’t abandoned creature comforts like cruise control, heated grips, or a comfy seat.
The Brabus 1300 R Edition 23 comes in two colour options: Superblack and Stealth Grey. As opposed to the previous 1300 R, which had a worldwide maximum of 154 units, 290 units of Edition 23 will be available to the public. Each bike will also come with an authenticity certificate. There will be 145 pieces created in each colour. Pre-orders for the Brabus 1300 R Edition 23 will be taken starting on February 16.
