Aston Martin and Brough Superior are revving up the intensity with the reveal of AMB 001 Pro, a visceral 997cc track only superbike inspired by Aston Martin’s unrivalled Valkyrie AMR Pro hypercar, unveiled today at the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show.
The strictly limited-edition AMB 001 Pro is the latest design collaboration between the two brands, and is the successor to the sold-out AMB 001. Like its inspiration, the AMB 001 Pro takes track performance to the extreme.
Offering a 25 per cent power increase on its predecessor, thanks in part to wet cylinder linings that help improve cooling, it delivers 165kW of power, producing a power to weight ratio that’s similar to a Formula One car.
“The success of its predecessor, coupled with the incredible Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, inspired us to get together again to create a new superbike; one that we know will excite our customers,” Brough Superior CEO Thierry Henriette said.
“We are particularly proud of the new engine type, with a crankcase fully machined from solid billet aluminium, which is a unique feature for a production motorcycle. With the marked increase in power this takes AMB 001 Pro into the hyperbike sector.”
It was at EICMA that the AMB 001, the first-ever Aston Martin motorcycle was revealed in 2019. The coming together of the two iconic and historic British performance brands, produced a unique, modern, lightweight and powerful sports bike, limited to just 100 units.
This time round, there are just 88 examples, with the AMB 001 Pro featuring a front spoiler and side wings, with the front cowl now fixed to the bodywork to manage the downforce at the front end of the motorcycle.
A tunnel effect air blade directs air over the rider. The airflow enters through a large intake integrated into the front wing, then passes through the new front cowl, to be deflected through the dynamic windshield.
A rear fin with an aero stabiliser further refines the aerodynamic updates. The AMB 001 Pro is offered in a single specification, featuring a racing livery that combines Aston Martin Verdant Jade with satin finished carbon fibre and black Cerakote engine and suspension.
These are highlighted by Photon Lime accents, paying a nod to Aston Martin’s winning bloodline of track racers. It’s also fitted with the Aston Martin “lacewing” badge, applied on the nose cowl and tank.
Initial orders have already been taken for the strictly limited edition AMB 001 Pro, which will be hand built at the Brough Superior factory in Toulouse, France. First deliveries will take place in Q4 2023.
