Designer George Brough on an SS80 original.
British icon back from the dead - The legendary Brough Superior rides again.
The first motorbikes to be made by the legendary Brough Superior marque in over 70 years are set to be rolled out onto British roads.
The legendary British manufacturers of the 'Rolls Royce' of motorcycles are nearing completion of 300 brand new machines after a businessman bought the rights to the Brough Superior name in 2008.
Mark Upham has already secured dozens of orders for the £50,000 modern-day replicas of the vintage Brough Superior SS100 bikes that were the fastest machines in the world in the 1930s.
The new gleaming models have a 1,000cc V-twin engine and a whopping 140bhp. They look almost indentical to the classic Brough bikes and have the same iconic 'saddle' petrol tank and speedo.
