According to Brough Superior Motorcycles
Aston Martin design meets Brough Superior engineering; two iconic and historic British performance brands unite.
With the AMB 001, Aston Martin and Brough Superior are presenting a unique, modern, lightweight, and powerful sports bike concept, boasting exclusive technical features, including a chassis configuration with a double-wishbone front fork and structural carbon fibre body.
Taking their inspiration from the new series of mid-engined Aston Martin cars, the Aston Martin Design team worked on clear principles of form and function, where design and engineering had to work together, resulting in a motorcycle that is a high-performance work of art.
AMB 001 has been designed to display a level of elegance that isn’t normally found on racing bikes. Beauty and power are the order of the day for this track-only racer.
DOHC 997cc 8-Valve 88-dergree V-twin, Water and Oil cooled, short stroke measuring 94mm x 71.8mm. It features a semi-dry crankcase lubrication improving efficiency by reducing the mechanical losses. Transmission includes an extractible 6 speed gearbox an APTC Clutch, and final drive by chain.
Timing is driven by a short Morse chain and a gear train, a compact conception for precision and reliability. The engine covers are Aluminium CNC, machined from billet.
The innovative chassis aggregates the best techniques such as a CNC machined from solid backbone bolted on the V-twin engine which is a fully load-bearing chassis component, combining stiffness with lightness. Then structural carbon fibre rear sub frame and Titanium interfaces are completing this high-tech chassis. Wheels are machined form aluminum forgings with their exclusive AMB 001 design
Specific brake system developed by a racing brake specialist, all the component machined from solid,
ball bearing action on the radial master cylinder piston, less effort for strong braking power with a prefect feeling.
