The 1300 R Edition 23 gets Brabus monoblock Z wheels, carbon fibre body elements, a bespoke seat, and two colour options – Superblack and Stealth Gray – each limited to 145 units. Last year’s colourways were Magma Red and Signature Black, each version produced in 77 examples.
Like the 1300 R, the engine and platform remain the same, a KTM 1290 Super Duke R Evo, which is powered by a 1,301cc LC8 V-Twin which makes 177 bhp and 140 Nm of torque, paired with a six-speed gearbox. Brabus has left the engine untouched, however, the motorcycle gets a custom dual-pipe slip-on exhaust built by Brabus.
