A Beautiful Design
I reported a while back that Aston Martin and Brough Superior were working on a motorcycle together. Well, it’s now been revealed, and it’s quite handsome. The companies call their creation the AMB 001, and it was unveiled at EICMA. The companies said at the show that this is only the beginning of what will be a longer collaboration.
The AMB 001 is a limited-production track bike. Only 100 will be made. The bike features copious amounts of carbon fiber, titanium, and billet aluminum. Aston Martin racing colors were used on the bike, including Stirling Green, Lime Essence, and matt black for accents. The saddle is hand-stitched Oxford Tan leather.
The motorcycle is powered by a 180 hp turbocharged V-twin engine. The bike weighs just under 400 pounds. All of the specifics of the bike were not disclosed, but they should be extremely impressive. The AMB 001 is a unique machine with some interesting lines and gorgeous attention to detail.
The bike costs $120,187 and deliveries are planned for Q4 of 2020. I expect most of these will be collector items and never actually make it to a racetrack, but I’d love to see one taken out and actually used as intended.
