Aston Martin’s First-Ever Motorcycle Is Here
It’s a stunning superbike fit for James Bond himself.
In collaboration with respected Nottingham-based bike manufacturer Borough Superior, Aston Martin debuted the AMB 001 during the first day of the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan.
The sports bike concept runs a 180-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-Twin and boasts track-spec technical features, including a chassis configuration with an aluminum double wishbone front fork and carbon fiber body. Its transmission consists of an extractable six-speed gearbox and performance clutch.
Presented in a “Stirling Green” and “Lime Essence” paint coat with matte black wheels, forks and brake assemblies, the AMB 001 also includes nods to four-wheeled, mid-engined Astons.
Its micron stainless steel wings, which sit under the multi-layered lacquer bodywork on the nose and tank, are exactly the same as those found on the forthcoming 1,160-hp Valkyrie hypercar. A level of luxury that’s commensurate with Aston’s interiors is found on the saddle, which features high-quality leather and stitching on the seat and handcrafted handlebars.
“This is what we believe a cutting-edge motorcycle should be and we are very proud to see the Aston Martin wings on a motorcycle for the first time,” said Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.
“In addition to applying the skills we have developed for cars such as the ground breaking Aston Martin Valkyrie we have also been able to bring our special expertise in the traditional craft techniques to this project. The finished product is a truly beautiful motorcycle; a design and engineering work of art.”
Only 100 AMB 001s will be sold for a staggering $120,600 each, with the first deliveries arriving late in 2020. Visit Aston’s website to inquire.
