Brough Superior: the 'Rolls-Royce of motorcycles' reborn

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by davidk, Aug 9, 2016.

  1. I'm generally pretty cynical about pseudo-vintage or homage bikes but I have to admit this one looks pretty good and appears to have been done properly. As you'd expect for ~$100k really.

  2. Wow, what a beautiful piece of art.

    I am however curious as the just how much value is in it compared to the original and yes I know when you're spending $100,000, "value" is not exactly top of mind. A bit like how no one buys a Rolex to tell time.
    The Brough were super expensive in their day however you also got a lot of performance too. 7 decades later and the best they can muster is another 30 mph top speed. Surely technology has come a little further than that...?

    Is it say 7 times better than the Guzzy V7 racer.


    PS: I'd still love one..

  3. I think the new Brough looks f..ing horrible and is an embarrassment to the name. So is the new Matchless. It's even worse. No offence intended to those who love them. I love the V7 though.
