Aston Martin & Brough Unleash A Turbocharged 180HP Track-Only Superbike

Nov 5, 2019

Elite British makes, Aston Martin and Brough Superior have just pulled the cover off of their exclusive motorcycle collaboration, dubbed the AMB 001. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary since the release of the first-ever Brough Superior motorcycle in 1919, the new joint effort sees the pair of high-end brands each contribute their own respective expertise to the project, with the prestigious car company being tasked with the aesthetic design while Brough handles the engineering and mechanics aspects.

Like the original Brough bikes, the AMB is powered by a potent liter-sized V-twin engine — though the new mill boasts liquid-cooling, 8-valves, DOHC, a six-speed gearbox and APTC clutch, and machined covers, as well as a variable geometry turbocharger. The 180hp twin is utilized as a stressed-member in the track-only model’s CNC-machined chassis, which is paired with an exposed carbon fiber subframe. Soaking up imperfections on the tarmac is an anti-dive double-wishbone Fior fork and double-sided swing-arm (and mono-shock) — both of which are machined from raw billet. The bodywork on the all-British mount takes cues from Aston Martin’s modern supercar lineup and is comprised of a combination of exposed and painted (in Aston Martin’s iconic Stirling Green) carbon fiber. The plush hand-stitched Oxford leather saddle and grips are another clear nod to the elite auto manufacturer, as well. Wheels are of the machined aluminum, quattuordecuple-spoke variety while the brakes were developed by a third-party race outfit specially for the AMB 001. Limited to only 100 units, the swanky new two-wheeler carries an MSRP of just under $120,000 and is slated to begin deliveries in Q4 of 2020.
