In the works for several years, the all-new SS100 is ready to roll. A spectacular product of Boxer Design and tuners Akira, the new Brough Superior SS100 retains the dominat retro looks despite being in fact made form the most advanced materials available, such as aluminium-magnesium alloy and titanium.

The dual-wishbone fork separates steering from braking, offering better performance, while retaining the retro design.

The suspension triangles are made from titanium, and the front wheel is also endowed with a race-grade aluminium-ceramic composite quadruple-disc array from Beringer. In the rear, the same material, but only one disc, with all three calipers using sintered metal pads. Ohlins is taking came of the damper section.

Power comes from an88-degree water- and oil-cooled v-twin which delivers anywhere between 100 and 140 hp @ 10,000 rpm, depending on the settings used. The 125 Nm (92 ft-lb) torque is available at 8000 rpm and this should make the 180 kg (395 lb) bike a pretty fun ride.

Cue 18-spoke machined rims, a classic racey riding position and shiny metal complementing the glossy black and not exactly the best LED headlight choice, and you've got the reborn Brough Superior SS100. Price TBA.
