KTM and Brabus have teamed up to bring one of the most exclusive streetfighters ever made. Brabus is a Germany-based tuning company that is known for offering high-end tuned Mercedes Benz cars. This is the first time the brand is coming with a motorcycle project. The Brabus 1300 R is predominantly based on the KTM flagship streetfighter, the Superduke 1290 R EVO.
It is offered in two colour options, Magma Red and Signature Black. The Brabus 1300 R production is limited to only 154 units globally, which makes it very exclusive. Both the colour options are limited to only 77 units each. This special edition streetfighter shares a lot of components with the Superduke, but it has a character of its own.

Brabus 1300 R Design and Styling
The Brabus 1300 R looks nothing like the aggressive and sharp KTM 1290 Superduke R EVO. Its design somewhat looks inspired by the Husqvarna bikes. This Brabus streetfighter comes with a muscular but elegant looking body design. It features a circular-shaped LED headlight that gives it a neo-retro cafe racer type face. It features a sculpted large 15.9 litres fuel tank with carbon fibre tank shrouds.
Brabus has equipped it with carbon fibre air intakes that improve the airflow and they also add an aggressive touch to its overall design. The Brabus 1300 R comes with a razor-sharp tail section that is also made up of carbon fibre. It is equipped with a custom rider-only heated seat and it features twin blacked-out custom exhaust mufflers. This Brabus streetfighter looks like a modern-day cafe racer and it exudes elegance from every angle.
