In 2024 Brabus will launch its new and ultra exclusive motorcycle, the 1400 R. Just like the machine that arrives to replace in the “dealers“, that is, the Brabus 1300 Rand as is tradition, the last mount from Bottrop will arrive based on the wild KTM 1390 Super Duke R 2024. That is to say, strong and expensive emotions come upon us.

The company Brabus Based in Bottrop (Germany), she has been immersed in the sector of dynamic customization of brand cars for many years. Mercedes, SMART and Maybach. In fact, they have so much tradition that the company was founded in 1977 by Klaus Brackmann and Bodo Buschmann. She has been raining since then.

However, in 2022 this changed. Brabus burst onto the two-wheeled scene with 154 units of the brutal 1300 R. Motorcycle based on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R and they were sold out as soon as they went on the market, in fact, it was news how short they lasted.

The following year, that is, last year, the successor called Brabus 1300 R Edition 2023. By the way, in October 2023 Brabus distributed the last 50 units of this limited series. Motorcycles considered authentic «masterpieces» and with a modest price of, rounding up, 50,000 euros. One after another…

The Brabus 1400 R will arrive in 2024

It is to be expected that the alliance between Brabus and KTM proceed out of mutual interest. But how are we so sure? Easy, we have reliable evidence of this. In fact, just a few days ago Brabus registered new names with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

But in plural? Yes, there are several denominations. This portends several variants of this model. They have registered the Brabus 1400 R Tailor Madethe Brabus 1400 R Rocket and, last but not least, the Brabus 1400 R Signature.

The key technical details of the Brabus 1400 R are now available on the platform KTM. That is, you just have to take a deep look at the KTM 1390 Super Duke R. Until now, Brabus has refrained from modifying the engine of its two-wheeled models, and the latest iteration of the LC8-V2 from KTM It has a factory power of 190 HP at 10,000 revolutions and a maximum torque of 145 Nm at 8,000 rpm.

For now, we can only speculate about the design of the new Brabus 1400 R. But, of course, there will be no shortage of carbon or the most noble materials. Don’t get confused, we are facing a real Teutonic black paw.

Be careful, we assume that Brabus will place the new 1400 R slightly above the price of its predecessor. Probably exceeds 50,000 euros. That is, double the value of the KTM 1390 Super Duke R serial.
