Introducing the 2024 BRABUS 1300R MASTERPIECE EDITION…

The BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition is the most limited series of the first-ever BRABUS motorcycle to date. As the last 50 units ever built, these unique Masterpieces represent the final chapter, making them a coveted possession for true enthusiasts seeking to call a piece of history their own. It is your personal signature in a world of conformity. A culmination of relentless passion and pure 1-Second-Wow that goes far beyond merely making a statement. In fact, it’s almost too rare to ride. It is a breathtaking display of enhanced velocity, available in two highly exclusive color variants and designed to infuse luxury on two wheels with new meaning. To transcend the boundaries of style and limited exclusivity.

Limited edition of two times 25 naked bikes sporting exclusive BRABUS design in the two colors “Onyx Black” and “Diamond White”
The first BRABUS motorcycle was presented in February 2022. It came in two colors and was limited to 77 bikes of each. All 154 BRABUS 1300 R naked bikes were sold in less than two minutes. The second edition, the Edition 23 comprised two times 145 motorcycles or 290 bikes in all and sold out similarly quickly. The platform in both cases was provided by the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO. The BRABUS series production is now coming to an end. The exclusive BRABUS 1300 R MASTERPIECE EDITION is available as a farewell to this fascinating hyper naked bike: a series of two times 25 elaborately refined motorcycles in the colors “Onyx Black” and “Diamond White,” which are given even more extravagant looks with select elements finished in the color “Frozen Gold”, and an even further expanded carbon package.

2024 BRABUS 1300R MASTERPIECE EDITION Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The bikes are powered by a V-twin engine rated at 132 kW / 180 hp and reach a top speed of 270 km/h. However, they particularly impress with their spectacular BRABUS Signature design. The thrilling front with its round LED headlight is unmistakable. The headlight is framed by a BRABUS exposed-carbon visor and combines classic motorcycle design with modern features such as the side fairings with integrated winglets inspired by motorsport. Like various parts of the front fender, they also are produced from this hi-tech composite material. In addition to the winglets, there are other carefully placed golden elements. They include the striking BRABUS Monoblock Z hi-tech forged wheels featuring polished sections, the decorative rings around the two mufflers of the BRABUS sports exhaust system, the “1 OF 25” Sign of Excellence badge on the tank as well as the BRABUS MASTERPIECE badge on the seat pad, which all mark these limited-edition motorcycles.

The BRABUS 1300 R MASTERPIECE EDITION sells for 41,930 euros (export price in Germany excluding statutory VAT).

The philosophy of refining a high-end bike such as the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO and giving it a very special profile in the hallmark BRABUS design idiom by means of high-quality exposed-carbon components struck a chord with motorcycle connoisseurs from all over the world. After two sold-out limited editions, at the end of production of this hyper naked bike there is now one last chance to score one of the world’s most extraordinary machines, which has the potential to become a sought-after collector’s item.

The exclusive BRABUS 1300 R MASTERPIECE EDITION comes in two variants in the colors “Onyx Black” and “Diamond White” with 25 bikes of each being built. Compared with the previous limited editions, they feature an even more extensive carbon package. It includes covers for the single-sided swingarm and the triangular frame sections under the tank and seat, as well as a cover for the top of the alternator enclosure.

This exclusive hyper naked bike from the BRABUS Manufaktur is immediately identifiable by its unique design featuring a front visor with large, round LED headlight and distinctive side fairings with integrated winglets as found on a MotoGP machine. These visual elements are produced from exposed carbon just like parts of the front fender and various cover plates on the engine. When the bike is started, the TFT display of the 1300 R shows an animation specifically programmed for this BRABUS limited edition.

Both versions of the new BRABUS bike feature a matte black trellis frame and the powerful KTM LC8 V-twin engine with a displacement of 1.3 liters, which gives the BRABUS 1300 R special model its name. This engine produces a maximum output of 132 kW / 180 hp at 9,500 rpm and a peak torque of 140 Nm at 8,000 rpm. It catapults the MASTERPIECE EDITION from rest to 100 km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds and propels the bike to a top speed of 270 km/h.

The WP semi-active suspension ensures decidedly sporty and safe handling. In AUTO mode it independently adapts to the road conditions and the driving style. At the touch of a button, the rider can also manually choose between different setups ranging from emphatically comfortable to a firm ride suitable for laps on the racetrack. There are also various available modes for the engine electronics that modify the power delivery in five stages from smooth on wet roads to maximum power output for racing circuits.

The sporty focus of this special model is reflected in a tailor-made tire/wheel combination as well. The 17-inch BRABUS Monoblock Z “GOLD PLATINUM” wheels were developed specifically for these bikes and are manufactured using state-of-the-art forging and CNC technologies. Matching their name, for the MASTERPIECE EDITION they sport a golden finish. Diamond-polished sections give the nine-spoke design an even more exclusive look. The wheels carry performance tires of sizes 120/70 R 17 at the front and 200/55 R 17 at the rear. They offer outstanding grip for sporty cornering.

The exclusive color scheme of the wheels is also found in other details of the BRABUS 1300 R MASTERPIECE EDITION. They include “Frozen Gold” highlight features such as the BRABUS MASTERPIECE badges, the winglets in the BRABUS side fairings on the left and right of the tank, ‘Signature Stripes’ on the front and rear, as well as the rings around the two mufflers of the BRABUS slip-on sports exhaust system. The name of this special model is laser-etched on the two sleek rear mufflers. The BRABUS exhaust naturally impresses not only with its sophisticated looks, but also with an even more aggressive exhaust note of the two-cylinder engine.

Its design furthermore is a seamless fit with the extravagant looks created in the BRABUS design studio. Depending on the selected variant, the tank, the tail cowl and parts of the front fender come in “Onyx Black” or “Diamond White.” The BRABUS upholstery shop covers the custom single seat with fine black leather and applies an exceedingly accurate “Diamond Rising” quilting pattern for both color variants. The padding for the tail cowl with golden BRABUS MASTERPIECE badge keeps the rider securely on the seat even under full acceleration. The individually adjustable foot pegs and the adjustable clutch and brake levers enable the rider to find the perfect seating position on the BRABUS 1300 R MASTERPIECE EDITION.

This makes the exclusive motorcycle from the latest cooperation between KTM and BRABUS the perfect choice for motorcycle enthusiasts with a penchant for spirited riding who wish for a sporty naked bike with outstanding driving dynamics and extravagant design. Available now in “Onyx Black” or “Diamond White” in a limited edition of 25 bikes each.

Each motorcycle of the MASTERPIECE EDITION is delivered with exclusive accessories. They include a tailor-made indoor cover as well as a floor mat in BRABUS 1300 R design for the parking space in the garage at home. Of course, both feature golden BRABUS MASTERPIECE emblems. The keys for each bike come in an exclusive carbon box that sports the logo of this limited edition. In addition, each of the fifty owners of this motorcycle will get the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive guided tour of the BRABUS Manufaktur in Bottrop.


BRABUS “Onyx Black” is the modern embodiment of timeless elegance. A true connoisseur’s shade, exuding understated power and sophistication. This deep, dark hue, reminiscent of moonless nights and hidden treasures, adds a subtle hint of mystery and intensity to the design of this exclusive motorcycle. Working in perfect harmony with the contrasts introduced by the BRABUS “Frozen Gold” accent color, it symbolizes power and an enigmatic allure that effortlessly captivates the eye with every single detail.

BRABUS “Diamond White”, with its blend of unadulterated purity and an unmistakable shine, epitomizes next-level modernity. It’s unapologetic confidence, reflected in the courage necessary to ride it – adding a level of coolness to the BRABUS 1300 R’s razor-sharp signature character that’s made even more unique by the strikingly elegant accents in BRABUS “Frozen Gold”. It’s a shade that catches the eye without being flashy, symbolizing individuality as well as an appreciation for the finer things in life.

For the first time, this limited edition naked bike features an all-new carbon fiber package – including the cover for the single-sided swing arm, dash and connector covers as well as the cover for the rear side fairing. But that’s just the beginning. The BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition’s striking bodywork is further defined by a range of returning highlight features, such as the distinctive round headlight mask, complete with carbon fiber side fairing, power domes as well as BRABUS Signature Stripes in the air scoop. The carbon fiber air-ducts are a further testament to decades of experience in processing prepreg carbon as well as a dedication to stylish weight reduction.

Like the carefully considered brushstrokes of an entirely unique work of art, what truly distinguishes the BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition are its meticulous details. Notably, the two winglets integrated into the side panels as well as the Signature Stripes running along both the headlight mask and the tail cowl capture the attention with an elegant finish in “Frozen Gold”. The same unmistakable finish also highlights the naked bike’s specially developed 9-spoke forged wheels. The BRABUS Sign of Excellence, positioned just above the fuel tank, serves as a proud testament to its exclusivity, denoting it as one of only 25 each color in existence.

Perfectly in tune with the design’s sporty, aggressive flair, the final variant of this extra limited-edition Masterpiece has undergone a stunning transformation for an unparalleled experience on the road. Should you dare to ride this rarity, the all-new padded backrest adorned for the very first time by the exclusive BRABUS Masterpiece badge ensures an undeniable 1-Second-Wow effect, underscored by the feel of the impeccable BRABUS Fine Leather. The bespoke heated seat has been reupholstered with excellent attention to detail by the interior design specialists of the BRABUS saddlery to feature the exquisite BRABUS “Diamond Rising” stitching pattern.

Finally, each unit of this luxury hyper-naked-bike comes with exclusive accessories, as part of the BRABUS Masterpiece package. These include a tailormade indoor cover to keep your BRABUS 1300 R protected in style. The BRABUS exhibition carpet accentuated by the “Heritage” brand pattern puts your bike into the limelight, creating an atmosphere of prestige no matter where it finds its place in your collection. Also included is the BRABUS Masterpiece Box made of high-grade carbon fiber and complete with a personalized Certificate of Authenticity, which not only marks your entry into an extremely rare owners’ elite, but offers you the opportunity to join the BRABUS Masterpiece Club. You will experience the world of BRABUS during a reserved company tour in Bottrop, Germany – where you will discover the origins of your Masterpiece first hand. Finally, ten highly sought-after tickets to BRABUS Signature Night 2024 tickets will be raffled off among all owners of the BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition. Here, you will have the chance to see all upcoming BRABUS world premieres up close and in action at an exclusive VIP event.

Sharing the same technology platform as its predecessors, the BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition is equipped with the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO’s 1,301 cc V-Twin engine producing 180 hp at 9,500 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm. As the benchmark of V-Twin evolution, this high-end configuration offers excellent power delivery – designed for enthusiasts. The dual-pipe slip-on exhaust developed specifically for the BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition underscores its BRABUS typical bold looks as well as the aggressive sound of its sporty V-Twin symphony. For an extra touch of exclusive elegance, the reimagined design features two accent rings in “Frozen Gold”.

The BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition is equipped with light-weight 17-inch BRABUS Monoblock Z forged wheels. Created through the use of state-of-the-art forging and CNC machining technology, their iconic nine-spoke design enhanced by a brand-new exclusive finish in “Gold Platinum” ensures an unmistakable BRABUS look. WP semi-active suspension technology transforms this exclusive motorcycle into an agile corner chaser at the push of a button, featuring electronically controlled solenoid valves for variable damping. This offers a wide range of adjustment options – from maximum street comfort to an extremely stiff set-up for the racetrack. In addition, this intelligent suspension system features an AUTO Mode, which automatically adjusts to conditions and rider input, always keeping the focus on the road.

Inspired by BRABUS supercars, the BRABUS 1300 R Masterpiece Edition offers the best in high-end technology. For maximum control, this exceptional naked bike features innovative traction control, anti-wheelie functionality and selectable riding modes that adapt to any environment and mood. These developments have been fine-tuned to provide more precise feedback from the engine and optimal intervention from the safety systems. Likewise, the integrated cruise control in combination with seat and handlebar grip heating leaves nothing to be desired, offering ideal comfort for long distances.
