Aston Martin forays into motorcycle design with AMB 001



Luxury carmaker Aston Martin has unveiled its first-ever motorcycle, which features a 180-horsepower turbocharged V-twin engine housed inside a carbon-fibre body, and is only legal for track use.
Developed in partnership with English motorcycle brand Brough Superior, only 100 models of the limited edition AMB 001 bikes will be made.
The motorcycle is designed for track-use only, boasting a 997-cc V-twin engine with a turbo-charged output of 180-horsepower. It also has a "variable geometry" and an intercooler, to further improve power by reducing drag and preventing overheating.

The AMB 001 takes design cues from Aston Martin cars, featuring a soft, sculptural body with a carbon-fibre "fin" based on the design of the side strakes found on the brand's vehicles. Coated with Aston Martin's Stirling Green shade, this fin forms the main seating part of the motorbike, running along the full length of the tank, passing under the saddle and out onto the rear to create a "flowing form" along the top of the vehicle.

The AMB 001 also features aerodynamic wings attached to the cowl ? the base of the windshield ? on the front of the bike, which are the same nine-micron stainless-steel wings found on the Aston Martin Valkyrie car.
A hand-stitched saddle comprised of Oxford Tan leather pads sits on top of the fin, in a bid to combine old techniques with modern technology.
