It draws power from a 1,301cc, V-twin engine that churns out a maximum power of 177.5hp.
- The Brabus 1300 R offers a cosmetic overhaul of the KTM 1290 Super Duke EVO for a hefty price but there are no changes to its mechanicals or features.
- The premium two-wheeler is meant for customers who are willing to spend a pretty penny for exclusivity. Certain units of the vehicle might even be reserved for our shores.
The Brabus 1300 R sits on a trellis frame and has a circular headlight with a shroud, a muscular fuel tank with carbon fiber inserts and aerodynamic air ducts, a rider-only saddle, aftermarket footpegs, and a twin-barrel exhaust. The bike packs an LED headlamp, a 5.0-inch TFT instrument cluster with support for smartphone connectivity, and rides on nine-spoke alloy wheels.
Under the hood, the Brabus 1300 R is powered by a 1,301cc, V-twin engine linked to a quickshifter. The mill churns out a maximum power of 177.5hp and a peak torque of 140Nm.
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Brabus 1300 R is equipped with Brembo Stylema disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. They come with carbon-fiber cooling ducts. Meanwhile, suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 48mm WP Apex forks on the front and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
In the UK, the Brabus 1300 R carries a price tag of £34,549 (roughly Rs. 35.28 lakh). The brand is yet to announce details related to the vehicle's pricing and availability in India.
