THE CURRENT RANGE of French-made Brough Superior bikes may ape the Broughs of the 1930s, but the company has partnered with luxury car maker Aston Martin to create a motorcycle that is as 21st century as it gets.
The AMB 001 is a track-only bike and just 100 examples will be made.
Aston Martin executive vice president and chief creative officer, Marek Reichman, said: “This is what we believe a cutting-edge motorcycle should be and we are very proud to see the Aston Martin wings on a motorcycle for the first time.
“The finished product is a truly beautiful motorcycle; a design and engineering work of art.”
The AMB 001 boasts exclusive technical features, including a chassis configuration with a double wishbone front fork and structural carbon fibre body, with plenty of titanium and billet aluminium.
The bike boasts a turbo-charged output of 180bhp and weighs just 180kg.
The AMB 001 is being built and hand-assembled in the Brough Superior factory in Toulouse, France. Just 100 examples will be made, each costing €108,000.
