For a long time synonymous with conservatism, Aston Martin is no longer afraid to tackle new niches. While waiting for its first SUV, the DBX, the brand even launches a motorcycle, which will be manufactured drop by drop in France.
Aston Martin novelty at the Milan Motor Show? This is surprising, since this event is THE rendez-vous of the year for the motorcycle world. But the AMB 001 is not an Aston Martin like the others. Despite its minimum € 108,000, this limited edition is indeed two wheels. It is the result of a collaboration with a small high-end French brand, Brough Superior, which will assemble this model near Toulouse. With, among other original features, a 997cc engine boosted by a turbo with variable geometry. A rare technology on a motorcycle. If the power of 180 hp is not surprising for a supersport, the couple should be more spectacular. With 180 kg dry, thanks to a marriage of carbon and titanium, this AMB 001 promises to be between much more powerful than a four-wheeled Aston Martin, except perhaps Valkyrie hypercars or Valhalla. But happy customers will not be able to find it under their Christmas tree this year: deliveries will only begin in the fourth quarter of 2020.
