The Brabus 1300 R sells out instantly after pre-orders open

Well, with only 154 units and a lot of interest, what did you expect?

KTM Brabus 1300 R

All two colors are spoken for. Gone, zilch, zero. None are left, but there is still hope for would-be owners and buyers if someone from the reservation list gets cold feet. 

Limited to only 154 units in the entire world in a production run that spans only two colors with 77 units each, the Brabus 1300 R had its pre-orders just recently, yesterday actually, but the catch is that all pre-order slots are spoken for and Brabus has issued a waitlist just in case some of the buyers opt to back out of the sale. 

One look at the Brabus 1300 R, and you can tell exactly why it sold out within a few moments after the floodgates opened up to eager buyers. KTM provided the base for the Brabus using the 1290 Duke R EVO. The newest iteration of the Super Duke’s completely decked out with some of the best performance componentry that the Austrian house can provide. With 180 hp and 140 Nm of torque from its LC8 V-Twin, it’s one of the fastest bikes around—no wonder Brabus went ahead with the partnership. Its suspension features a WP APEX semi-active setup. On top of that, the package includes a stellar set of rider aids and modes to play with. It’s one of the sharpest sport nakeds around, if not the sharpest. It earns its nickname, “the beast” with all of its tech and outright performance. 

To make the 1300 R a bonafide Brabus build, the German high-performance brand fitted the 1290 R with some bespoke parts which include a full catalog of high-end Brabus parts which are crafted in-house. LIberal use of premium materials extends from the front all the way to the tail. The 17-inch wheels are a set of Monoblock Z 9-spokes and are wrapped in Bridgestone Battlax S22 tires, with brakes provided by Brembo. Two Stylema Brembo calipers clamp down on 320mm brake rotors and cornering ABS and KTM’s trademark SuperMoto mode help it out. 

That’s just the tip of the iceberg though, and Brabus went all out with the details, specs, and craftsmanship with this bike. Any collector would be glad to have this bike in their garage, but if you’re not on the order list, well, the wait list isn’t such a bad place to be.
