All new 2014 Brough Superior SS100
The new SS100 exhibits the extremely high quality craftsmanship plus high end components and materials you would expect of the name and it has a certain visual connection to the legendary classics, but as a motorcycle, I’m not sure what to think of it. Is this what the Brough would have been if it had survived all of these years and continued to evolve or is this a modern recreation of sorts based on the famous name with enough visual hints to make you feel like it’s a true descendant?”
The custom designed engine is an 88 degree V-Twin DOHC, 4 valves per cylinder, water and oil cooled of 997cc displacement and available in configurations from 100 to 140 horsepower. Dry weight of the SS100 is a very svelte 395 pounds. The frame is steel and titanium with an aluminum and magnesium alloy swing arm, shocks are from Ohlins and it looks like the front suspension is a Hossack derivative. Brakes are Beringer, with 4 ceramic discs.
