The original bike's DNA is in the new bike's blood. The original SS100 had a long, horizontal profile and the new motorcycle keeps this. The frame today is made of machined titanium with a titanium sub-frame and triangles, the original was made of steel, but the heritage is clear.
Look at the gorgeous aluminium fuel tank, hand rolled and welded by our in-house technician. It's the same basic design that appeared on all George Brough's motorcycles. That Castle fork too can still be seen today as an updated version, a Fior-type cast aluminium fork with twin articulated links. The big capacity V-twin engine is there too. The original SS100 engine was a four-cam JAP 980cc KTOR air cooled V-twin, with a Sturmey-Archer three speed gear box.
The new engine is a custom made 997cc water called V-twin, with a six speed gear box. Other details also give the new SS100 an aura of the inter-war years, for example the Art Deco brake callipers ad the specially designed speedo, inspired by the iconic 5 inch Smiths instrument.
