Car enthusiasts around the world are very well-versed with Aston Martin and their sportscars. Even motorcycling purists sometimes find it hard to resist the charm of Bond's favourite cars. We at xBhp also posted about the Valkyrie, probably one of the craziest cars you may have ever heard of. But now, the UK marquee is ready to come out with something to actually entice two-wheeler aficionados... An Aston Martin motorcycle.



And that is no fluke people. Aston Martin has announced its collaboration with Brough Superior to create the world’s first Aston-branded bike – which will be launched at the EICMA show in Milan on 5 November.

Here's the official statement:

The iconic Aston Martin wings will appear on a motorcycle for the first time when the initial product of an exciting new collaboration between Aston Martin Lagonda and Brough Superior is revealed at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy.

Brough Superior, the eponymous performance motorcycle brand created by George Brough in 1919 and resurrected by enthusiasts long after his death is, like Aston Martin, a luxury brand with a great heritage. Both Brough Superior and Aston Martin place huge importance on developing a brand that customers are proud to be part of and products that strike the perfect balance between performance and design.

Both masters of craftsmanship who use the finest materials to breathe life into their designs, as independent companies they also revel in their ability to offer a bespoke design and engineering solutions so a collaboration between the two brands is virtually guaranteed to produce something very special.

The first new motorcycle is the combined vision of Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman and Brough Superior CEO Thierry Henriette, who are both motorcycle enthusiasts.

Reichman said: “This is a fascinating and very popular project for myself and my team. The opportunity to collaborate with Brough Superior has given us the chance to bring our own unique views on how beauty and engineering can combine to create a highly emotive piece of the vehicle design. We’re excited about the end result and can’t wait to see the reaction the motorcycle receives when it is revealed next year.”

Henriette commented: “Aston Martin and Brough Superior are two luxury automotive manufacturers sharing the same passion for exclusive design and performance, the idea of developing a motorcycle in a frame of a close partnership came naturally.”

Now we know that the motorcycle will be unveiled at EICMA 2019, but we are not sure if the project is going to be a regular production model, a one-off special or one with a limited run. According to the statement, the motorcycle won't be out until next year so we know that the one that is going to be unveiled at EICMA is not going to be a finished product. But we are excited nonetheless... we just hope that they somehow incorporate the iconic grille...
