Aston Martin has released pictures of its upcoming AMB 001 motorcycle on track, following its reveal in late 2019. The bike, designed for use on road courses, will be powered by a 180-horsepower turbocharged V-twin engine, and cost approximately $121,000.
The bike is a collaboration between Aston Martin and English motorcycle company Brough Superior. The first testing, shown in the images here, took place at the Pau-Arnos circuit in France, using a test mule covered in Aston’s signature bright green patterned camouflage.
Aston Martin says bench testing of the AMB 001’s engine is currently underway. The turbocharged and intercooled V-twin will make 180 horsepower, making for some serious capability. Combined with a front-mounted radiator and oversized intake manifold, the British sports car maker promises the fascia to resemble a “supercar engine appearance.”
The AMB 001 is expected to go into production this fall at Brough Superior’s factory in Toulouse, France, once testing is complete. Just 100 examples will be built, each with a starting price of €108,000.
