What do Aston Martin and Brough Superior have in common?

13 April 2022

George Brough made Brough Superior motorcycles in Nottingham from 1919 to 1940. The Brough Superior was dubbed the ‘Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles.’ 

The Brough Superior AMB 001 has eventually arrived following its debut three years ago at the Milan Motorcycle Show. There will be only 100 of the ‘track-only’ motorised velocipedes.

Initially scheduled for launch in 2020, but delayed due to the Pandemic.

Combining two respected and iconic brands, Aston Martin and Brough Superior, it combines meticulous engineering with absolute design. It uses a structural carbon fibre body and unique chassis design, driven by a turbo-charged V-twin engine producing 180hp.

The cost of these Stirling Green and Lime Essence with Matte Black wheels beauties is £82,550; I understand deliveries to customers in Japan, Australia, and North America are underway, leaving only ten unsold bikes. Out with your chequebooks, guys.

Should Brough Superior now be dubbed the ‘Aston Martin of Motorcycles?’
