Leading European motorcycle manufacturer joins forces with Brabus.
Since 1977, the Brabus name has been synonymous with luxury, handcrafted exclusivity and performance. Known globally among enthusiasts for the creation of high-performance supercars and as automotive individualization experts for over four decades, Brabus has since also established itself in the marine sector through its series of exclusive day boats.
