The 2022 Brabus 1300 R is the Bike for the Rich and Famous

Bottrop, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany

If you’re as wealthy as I wish I was, the luxury mobility company Brabus will be familiar to you.

It specializes in high-end supercars and stunning day boats, but did you know it can also now be called a luxury motorcycle supplier? It’s true, thanks to a partnership with KTM.

KTM supplies the platform with its 1290 Super Duke EVO R and Brabus supplies the bling.

In addition to the KTM chassis and powerplant, the Brabus 1300 R comes with forged Monoblock Z nine-spoke wheels, lots of carbon fibre, slip-on double exhaust, CNC-machined adjustable levers and footpegs, and headlight mask, among other design cues. There’s also a number badge on the tank so you can show your friends how quick you were to hit the order button online.

To keep your tush warm it also comes with a stylish custom-made heated seat. Can anyone say toasted buns?

There are only 154 of these bikes available – 77 Magma Red and 77 Signature Black – and they’re all spoken for. Those rich people act fast don’t ya know? But if you’re really interested and just have to get one for yourself, you can put your name on a waiting list in case one becomes available however unlikely that may be.

I haven’t seen a price. I guess it’s a case of “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”
