Very right – and apparently everybody else thought the same, because a recent press release from KTM just told us that the 154-unit fleet of the Brabus 1300 R – scheduled to be reserved via pre-orders yesterday – sold out in a minute and 55 seconds flat.
That’s practically a bike a second, if you want to do the maths and get all pouty about it.
The Brabus 1300 R is a beauty of a machine that will put nearly as impressive a dint in your pocket, with the German Automotive Tuning Company contributing the following to the build, according to KTM’s website:
Monoblock Z Lightweight 9-spoke forged wheels
Slip-On double-pipe exhaust
Custom-made heated seat
Carbon Belly Pan
CNC-machined triple clamp
CNC-machined adjustable front brake and clutch lever
CNC-machined adjustable footpegs
The bike also comes with WP APEX semi-active suspension, including the SUSPENSION PRO package and a gaggle of grins that they’ve tossed in there for free.
