Aston Martin has introduced its first motorcycle as part of a partnership with Brough Superior that brings together two of England's most revered performance brands. The limited-edition AMB 001 features Aston Martin's design with the engineering of a brand once known as the "Rolls-Royce of motorcycles." Brough Superior ceased operations in 1940 but was brought back to life in 2013.

The lightweight racing bike was inspired by Aston Martin's midengine vehicles that's both lightweight and strong. A carbon fiber fin culled from Aston Martin side strakes runs the full length of the tank before passing under the saddle and out onto the rear. It can even be seen through the breaks of the stitched Oxford leather seat. Aerodynamic wings, taking a cue from the S-Curve at the front of Aston Martin's, are attached to the cowl on the front of the bike to create aerodynamic downforce. Brough Superior's first V-twin turbo-charged engine boasts 180 horsepower and weighs just under 400 pounds.

"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," Aston Martin executive vice president and chief creative officer Marek Reichman said in a press release. "In addition to applying the skills we have developed for cars such as the ground breaking 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 AMB 001 is limited to just 100 units, and each is built and hand-assembled in Brough Superior's factory. The MSRP is set at $119,560.
