Meet Aston Martin’s First Motorcycle; A $120k Carbon Fiber Superbike For The Track Only

Aston Martin and Brough Superior revealed the AMB 001, a new track-only limited edition motorcycle that made its debut at the Milan Motorcycle Show.

The new superbike will be limited to just 100 examples offering a blend of Aston Martin design and the state-of-the-art engineering of Brough Superior “for the motorbike connoisseur”, according to the official press release.

Finished in Aston’s racing colors of Stirling Green and Lime Essence on matt black wheels, forks and brake assemblies, the new AMB 001 utilizes a carbon fiber body and is powered by a turbocharged 180 HP V-twin engine. Dry weight is just 180 kg (396 lbs).

“This is what we believe a cutting-edge motorcycle should be and we are very proud to see the Aston Martin wings on a motorcycle for the first time,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s Executive VP and Chief Creative Officer. “The finished product is a truly beautiful motorcycle; a design and engineering work of art.”

The strong sculptural form of the new superbike is accented by a carbon fiber fin, which is similarly designed with the side strake of Aston Martin cars, running along the full length of the fuel tank before passing under the saddle and out onto the rear.

The new AMB 001 will be built and hand-assembled at Brough Superior’s factory in Toulouse, France. Each one of the 100 planned examples will be offered with a price tag of 108,000 euros (around $120k in current exchange rates), with first deliveries to begin from late 2020.
