Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition Is The Company’s Last KTM Collaboration
September 28, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
Brabus and KTM announced the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition, the third and final bike in their trilogy, will be released on September 27, 2023. Only 50 of these incredibly rare bikes will ever be produced and sold globally, with 25 available in the Onyx Black and 25 available in Diamond White colorways. Both variations feature even more unique Brabus carbon fiber bodywork than ever before, as well as highlights painted in a tint that Brabus refers to as Frozen Gold.
Only 50 Will Ever Be Made
This is Brabus and KTM’s third joint project, all of which are based on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R Evo. The first was the Brabus 1300 R, which was introduced in February 2022 and was available in two colors and 154 total motorcycles. In less than two minutes, the batch was sold out. The Brabus 1300 R Edition 23 followed, which had 290 motorcycles in total and was also available in two colors. It too sold out nearly immediately after being on sale.
The KTM LC8 V-twin engine, which powers the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition, is rated to produce 180 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 140 newton-meters (103 pound-feet) at 8,000 rpm. According to reports, the period from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (or 62 mph) is 3.2 seconds. 270 km/h, or slightly under 168 mph, is the top speed.
While Brabus had complete creative control over the majority of this bike’s components, the semi-active WP Apex suspension, which has both an automated and a manually adjustable mode, handles suspension responsibilities.
A WP Apex Pro 7117 steering damper is also included. The front brakes have two Brembo Stylema 4-piston calipers and 320mm floating rotors, while the rear brakes have a Brembo 2-piston caliper and a single 240mm disc. A standard feature set includes ride modes, quickshifter, cornering and super moto ABS, and an adaptive brake light.
It’s time to discuss the Brabus of it all at this point. Since 1977, Brabus has been involved in the automobile tuning industry, and it is known for its expertise in carbon fibre, leathercraft, and CNC-machined components. The company’s name is frequently shown alongside those of partners including Mercedes-Benz, Smart, Maybach, and most recently, KTM.
How can Brabus improve on the work it accomplished for the 1300 R’s earlier iterations? Naturally, you turn the carbon fiber and exclusivity up. It is obvious that very few individuals will ever acquire one of these Masterpiece Editions because just 25 pieces of each color are being produced.
Regarding carbon fiber, Brabus expanded its already vast collection of carbon fibre parts and pieces found from headlight to taillight by adding a single-sided swingarm cover, dash cover, connection cover, and rear side fairing covers.
The front of the bike has a sizable, spherical Brabus LED headlamp, side fairings with winglets inspired by MotoGP, a front spoiler, and a tail with a single seat and license plate bracket.
The wheels are forged alloy Brabus Monoblock Z “Gold Platinum” units that Brabus produced specifically for this bike. A CNC triple clamp, adjustable CNC clutch and brake levers, CNC aluminum brake and clutch reservoir covers, adjustable CNC foot pegs, bar end mirrors and a slip-on dual exhaust with Frozen Gold accent rings are just a few more Brabus-made features.
Both the grips and the seat are heated, and the seat has a distinctive “Diamond Rising” quilted Brabus leather design.
A customized Brabus indoor motorbike cover, floor mat and carbon key box are also included with the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition, in addition to a distinctive Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece emblem on the seat cushion.
Without value-added tax (VAT), the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition costs 41,930 Euros in Germany. As of September 27, 2023, that is almost $44,065. You can get in touch with Brabus at the number shown in our Sources to learn more if you’re interested.
Along with their new motorcycle, buyers of the Brabus 1300 R Masterpiece Edition will also get a special corporate tour of the firm’s headquarters in Bottrop, Germany.
