New AMB 001: Aston Martin's first motorcycle – Auto-Moto

Aston Martin AMB 001

The Aston Martin on two wheels

Aston Martin creates a surprise at the Milan show by unveiling the first motorcycle in its history. Named AMB 001 for Aston Martin Brough, this limited edition sports car is made in partnership with Brough Superior. Originally, Brough is an English luxury motorcycle brand founded by George Brough between 1919 and 1940. The SS100 model, owned by Lawrence of Arabia, retains a huge rib. Relaunched in 2019 by the French Thierry Henriette, Brough Superior produces new prestige models in Toulouse at Boxer Design. The collaboration between the two manufacturers was initiated by Marek Reichman, the head of design of Aston Martin, motorcycle enthusiast.

A turbo V-Twin without electronic crutches

Covered with a carbon fairing, the AMB 001 sports a very clean style and is based on a minimalist frame made of aluminum and titanium around a motor carrier. This 1000cc V-twin is supercharged by a turbocharger with variable geometry to deliver 180 hp. A power equivalent to the dry weight announced at 180 kg. The torque value should exceed 130 Nm according to our estimates. Still in the prototype state, the AMB 001 does not have electronic aids. Intended only for use on track this car is also devoid of mirrors, turn signals and ABS. The instrumentation is limited to an iPhone dock at the base of the handlebars. A specific application allows to visualize the engine speed, speed and other essential information.
