Aston Martin has teamed up with British motorcycle maker, Brough Excellent, to create a restricted version, track only athletics bike, and the pair have now released a new teaser video clip.
The bike, identified as AMB 001, will launch at the stop of the calendar year, and this new teaser clip demonstrates the first prototype undergoing progress.
We’ve currently found the AMB 001’s generation bodywork but, in an effort and hard work to establish a little bit of exhilaration in advance of the bike’s official launch, Aston Martin has wrapped it in the exact camouflage worn by DBX SUV progress mules. Manufacturing will be restricted to just one hundred units, with each commanding a value of €108,000 (approximately £93,000).
The completed products will be a light-weight athletics bike with a double wishbone entrance fork, a billet aluminium swing-arm, titanium grips, an Inconel exhaust manifold and structural carbon fibre body panels. To keep the motorcycle’s kerb fat down to an absolute least, its wheels are also machined from strong aluminium.
In contrast to Brough Superior’s present-day Pendine Sand Racer and Super Sports activities one hundred styles – each of which feature a basic bare cafe racer design and style – the AMB 001 is up to date. It has full fairings and the pair claim that the bodywork’s S-Curve-shaped aerodynamic wings attached to the entrance cowl present functional downforce.
Its hand-stitched saddle and handlebar grips are trimmed in Oxford Tan leather-based, even though the entrance fairing properties a digital instrument binnacle with read-outs for velocity, engine revs and the gear range. The bike also features the exact ultra-light Aston Martin badges located on the Valkyrie, which are hewn from nine-micron-thick stainless metal.
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-velocity sequential transmission and, thanks to the AMB 001’s comprehensive use of light-weight products, the bike has a dry fat of 180kg – which offers it a energy-to-fat ratio in excess of 900bhp for every tonne.
The AMB 001 marks the first time Aston Martin’s badge has appeared on a motorcycle and the first time a Brough Excellent products has been fitted with a turbocharged V-Twin engine.
Brough Excellent was proven in Nottingham in 1919, by George Brough. Through the early twentieth Century, the manufacturer made the world’s quickest and most high-priced functionality bikes – this sort of as the 1924 SS100, which was comfortably capable of reaching 100mph and charge the equal of £10,000 in today’s cash.
