Aston Martin AMB 001 Unveiled; Priced at 108,000 Euros (INR 85 Lakh)
EICMA 2019 witnessed a host of premium motorcycle launches while the launch of Aston Martin AMB 001, the debut motorcycle from the brand has surpassed them all. The brand will be manufacturing only 100 units of its first-ever motorcycle, which has been specifically designed in collaboration with Brough Superior motorcycles.
Commenting on the launch of the premium sports bike, the official stated – “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. In addition to applying the skills, we have developed for cars such as the groundbreaking 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.”
The retro-futuristic design offered to the motorcycle has officially redefined the “unique outlook”. The motorcycle has been equipped with a double-wishbone front fork while featuring an ocean blue colour shade with tons of carbon fibre detailing that shrieks of modern perfection.
The fin-inspired design borrowed from the premium Aston martin cars flows all the way from the fuel tank to the rear of the motorcycle. The single-seat design with yellow Oxford tan leather further sets it apart from any conventional rider seat.
Taking inspiration from the Aston Martin Valkyrie hybrid sports car, the Aston Martin AMB 001 sports bike features the same stainless steel wings under the front profile. Another set of aerodynamic wings further offered to the motorcycle just below the cowl integrates with the S-curve of the motorcycle and imparts additional downforce.
Powering the Aston Martin AMB 001 is a 997cc 8-Valve 88-degree V-twin turbocharged engine borrowed from the Brough Superior motorcycle that is capable of generating a maximum power figure of whopping 180HP. The dry weight of the motorcycle stands at 180kgs while the top speed has not yet been revealed by the brand.
The brand will be offering only 100 variants of the motorcycle that will hit production at Brough Superior plant in Toulouse, France. The Aston Martin AMB 001 has been launched with a hefty price tag of 108,000 Euros (INR 85 lakh, direct conversion).
