Brabus Unveiled Its First Modified Motorcycle
Mercedes-Benz auto tuner Brabus has been collaborating with KTM on the company’s first motorbike project, and now official details and photographs have been revealed. The company’s first project with KTM, as planned, is based on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R and has the same frame and engine. Only 154 Brabus 1300 R motorcycles will be produced, with 77 in Magma Red and 77 in Signature Black. The number 77 refers to the brand’s inception year of 1977, and it has been producing high-end Mercedes-based supercars ever since. The KTM-Brabus 1300 R is the company’s first foray into the two-wheeler market.
Exclusive 2022 Brabus 1300R
The Brabus 1300 R is substantially based on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R, with the same 177 horsepower and 140 Nm of torque engine. New air intakes on both sides of the fuel tank, as well as a stacked exhaust system with a black ceramic finish, have been added to the Brabus 1300 R. The Brabus 1300 R will be equipped with the same semi-active WP Apex SAT suspension as the new Super Duke R Evo, as well as the Suspension Pro function. This suspension provides the option to adjust the rear ride height from the TFT panel, with three degrees of adjustment: Low, Standard, and High.
Feature Loaded Bikes Based On KTM
One of the components modified for the Brabus 1300 R is the TFT instrument console, which now has a new start-up screen with the Brabus emblem. The seat is similarly inspired by Brabus automobiles and comes in two colours: red and black. The face, as well as the flanks, are noticeably different, with a carbon fibre cowl perched atop a round headlamp emblazoned with the Brabus insignia. Carbon fibre is used liberally on the front fender as well as the brake air ducts, which are derived from the Super Duke RR. Bar-end mirrors dangle from the ends of the adjustable position bars, and there’s extensive use of carbon fibre on the front fender as well as the brake air ducts.
The Brabus 1300 R would be sold exclusively in Europe, with prices beginning at 51,466 Euros (about Rs. 44 lakh at current currency rates).
