Aston Martin and Brough Superior today unveiled the AMB 001 Pro, a 997cc track bike inspired by Aston Martin’s incomparable Valkyrie AMR Pro hypercar, at EICMA. The limited edition AMB 001 Pro is the latest design collaboration between the two brands, combining legendary Aston Martin design with advanced Brough Superior engine technology. Offered in a single Pro specification, the successor to the sold-out AMB 001 is inspired by Aston Martin’s off-road hypercar Valkyrie AMR Pro. Like its inspiration, the AMB 001 Pro takes track performance to the extreme with a 25% power increase over its predecessor, with its 225hp producing a power-to-weight ratio of 1.28hp/kg, equivalent to an F1 -car.
Thierry Henriette, CEO of Brough Superior, said: “We are delighted to unveil the AMB 001 Pro at EICMA today. The success of its predecessor, combined with the incredible Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, inspired us to come together again to create a new superbike; one that we know will excite “
Marek Reichman, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, said: “It’s a beautifully simple formula. Form plus technology equals performance. When you push something to the edge of your capability and do it seamlessly, the experience can take your breath away. There is no separation between the engine’s advanced materials, design and technical characteristics. We achieved this again with the Brough Superior for those who want a track superbike like no other. The rider is part of this moving sculpture and will literally feel part of the track when riding the AMB 001 Pro. “
It was at EICMA 2019 that the AMB 001, the very first Aston Martin motorcycle, was unveiled. The combination of Aston Martin and Brough Superior, two iconic and historic British brands, has created a unique, modern, light and powerful sports bike. This was limited to just 100 pieces and is now completely sold out. The new AMB 001 Pro builds on the AMB 001 and takes the excitement to the extreme. The power increase is due to a new two-cylinder 997cc engine, which is machined exclusively from AL 5000 solid billet metal. The material’s ideal properties improve engine stiffness, while a new cylinder design helps improve cooling.
The AMB 001 Pro is offered in one colour, the racing colours, combining Aston Martin Verdant Jade with satin finished carbon fiber and a powerful engine and suspension. Like other ultra-luxury Aston Martin models, the AMB 001 Pro has the Aston Martin ‘lacing badge’. Designed for the Aston Martin Valkyrie programme, it’s a chemically etched logo and is 99.4% lighter than the marque’s standard enamel logo, and at just 70 microns thick, it’s 30% thinner than a human hair. It is applied to the front of the engine and on the tank and finished with a perfect coat of paint. Visitors to EICMA will be treated to the first look of the AMB 001 Pro prototype, displayed alongside its source of inspiration, the Valkyrie AMR Pro. The first orders have already been received for the strictly limited edition AMB 001 Pro, which will be hand-built at the Brough Superior factory in Toulouse, France. The first deliveries will take place in Q4 2023.
The price of this exclusive motorcycle is not yet known, but there are already rumors that the motorcycle will cost more than €120,000.
