Two iconic and historic British performance brands unite…
…with a strictly limited edition motorcycle in the first product from new partnership.
November 2019, Milan, Italy: The AMB 001 by Aston Martin and Brough Superior made its worldwide debut at EICMA, the Milan Motorcycle Shows, last week. The debut is the first chapter of a new partnership between Aston Martin and Brough Superior. Only 100 examples will be built.
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. In addition to applying the skills we have developed for cars such as the ground breaking Aston Martin Valkyrie we have also been able to bring our special expertise in the traditional craft techniques to this project. The finished product is a truly beautiful motorcycle; a design and engineering work of art.”
With the AMB 001 is a unique, modern, lightweight and powerful sports bike concept, boasting exclusive technical features, including a chassis configuration with a double wishbone front fork and structural carbon fibre body.
Presented in the traditional Aston Martin Racing colours of Stirling Green and Lime Essence with Matte Black wheels, forks and brake assemblies, the AMB 001 features a sublime combination of paint and bare carbon fibre that accentuates the lines of this collectors’ item. As befits the Aston Martin and Brough Superior brands, all of the components have been specially designed using the best processes and materials, including carbon fibre, titanium and billet aluminium.
A carbon fiber fin runs down the length of the gas tank, reflecting the side strakes on the latest mod-engine cars from Aston.
The AMB 001 boasts a V-twin turbo-charged engine with an output of 180 hp at less than 400 pounds dry weight.
In keeping with its track-inspired pedigree, the AMB 001 is presented with ultra-lightweight Aston Martin wings, which sit under the lacquer of the bodywork on the nose and the tank. These are the same nine-micron stainless steel wings that adorn the Aston Martin Valkyrie.
Priced about $120,000, first deliveries are set to begin from Q4 2020.
