Aston Martin and Brough Superior have unveiled the first motorbike that will come out of their partnership, called the AMB 001.
For the first time ever Aston Martin is trying their hand with two wheels. Working with Brough Superior (pronounced “bruff”), Aston Martin developed an ultra modern motorbike that is the union of their supercar styling and Brough’s engineering. The AMB 001 borrows design cues from Aston’s current lineup of supercars, and it’s safe to say that their design language transfers over to a motorbike superbly. Carbon fiber and titanium are abundant and the seat features hand stitched Oxford tan leather. Aston Martin described it as a “piece of automotive art for the motorbike connoisseur”. Although, unfortunately for the motorbike connoisseur, they can only use their “art” on the track as the AMB 001 will not be street legal.
Powering the AMB 001 is a V-twin turbocharged engine from Brough Superior that pumps out 180 horsepower. No performance numbers are released, but with a dry curb weight of 397 pounds this bike should be as fast as it is stunning.
The AMB 001 will cost around $120,000, and is expected to be delivered in late 2020. If you want one though, you might want to act quick as Aston Martin is doing a limited production run of only 100 models. And keep in mind that you’ll be paying $120,000 for a car you can’t drive on the road. More motorbikes will be coming out of Aston and Brough’s partnership, however you should expect those to be very limited as well.
