The concluded product or service will be a light-weight sports bicycle with a double wishbone entrance fork, a billet aluminium swing-arm, titanium grips, an Inconel exhaust manifold and structural carbon fibre human body panels. To continue to keep the motorcycle’s kerb weight down to an complete minimal, its wheels are also machined from good aluminium.

As opposed to Brough Superior’s existing Pendine Sand Racer and Tremendous Athletics 100 models – both equally of which aspect a traditional naked cafe racer style and design – the AMB 001 is contemporary. It has whole fairings and the pair claim that the bodywork’s S-Curve-shaped aerodynamic wings attached to the entrance cowl deliver practical downforce.

Its hand-stitched saddle and handlebar grips are trimmed in Oxford Tan leather-based, while the entrance fairing residences a digital instrument binnacle with read through-outs for speed, engine revs and the gear variety. The bicycle also attributes the similar extremely-mild Aston Martin badges found on the Valkyrie, which are hewn from nine-micron-thick stainless steel.

The AMB 001 is run by a turbocharged 997cc double-overhead cam V-twin engine, which develops 178bhp. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission and, thanks to the AMB 001’s considerable use of light-weight components, the bicycle has a dry weight of 180kg – which gives it a electrical power-to-weight ratio in extra of 900bhp for each tonne.

The AMB 001 marks the initially time Aston Martin’s badge has appeared on a motorcycle and the initially time a Brough Top-quality product or service has been fitted with a turbocharged V-Twin engine. 

Brough Top-quality was established in Nottingham in 1919, by George Brough. All through the early 20th Century, the brand name generated the world’s speediest and most costly efficiency motorcycles – these as the 1924 SS100, which was comfortably capable of achieving 100mph and expense the equal of £10,000 in today’s revenue.
