At the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show, Aston Martin and motorcycle manufacturer Brough Superior revealedAMB 001 Pro, a visceral 997cc track-only superbike inspired by Aston Martin’s unrivaled Valkyrie AMR Pro hypercar. This latest design collaboration between the two brands is limited to just 100 units and now fully sold out.
The successor to the sold-out AMB 001 offers a 25% power increase with its 225 HP producing a power-to-weight ratio of 1.28 hp/kg, similar to that of a Formula One® car. The power increase was achieved thanks to a new CNC-machine, dual-cylinder 997cc engine, which has been fully machined from AL 5000 solid billet. The ideal properties of the material improve the stiffness of the structural engine, whilst a new cylinder design with wet cylinder liners helps to enhance cooling.
Downforce is increased with the help of the 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.
The AMB 001 Pro features 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 that are inspired by Aston Martin’s winning bloodline of track racers.
The AMB 001 Pro is fitted with the Aston Martin ‘lacewing’ badge. Designed for the Aston Martin Valkyrie program, the chemical etched aluminum lacewing is a remarkable 99.4% lighter than the brand’s regular enamel badge, and at just 70 microns thick is 30% thinner than human hair. It will be applied on the nose cowl and tank, on top of the painted finish yet beneath a perfectly smooth coat of lacquer.
The bike will be hand-built at the Brough Superior factory in Toulouse, France. The first deliveries will take place in Q4 2023.
