Brough Superior is back with 2 models and will debut August 14-16th at the legendary 2009 Pebble Beach Concours. Their very high quality fabrication, fit and finish gave Brough Superior the deserved titled of “Rolls Royce Of Motorcycles”.
Their reputation for reliability and race victories make them among the most collectible and high valued motorcycles (about 1000 still exist valued from $80,000 to $3,000.000)). They were made by George Brough in Nottingham, England, from 1919 to 1940. 19 models for a total of 3,048 motorcycles were fabricated in 21 years of production (84 cars we also made). T. E. Lawrence (‘Lawrence of Arabia’) owned seven bikes and died from injuries sustained while crashing one. George Bernard Shaw was another among many celebrities that were enthusiastic about Brough products.
Responsible for the return of Brough Superior is an Englishman in Austria named Mark Upham, CEO of a company called Netherton Industries Ltd owning the trademark/name/intellectualright for the famous brand. Since 1996 he works on reviving Brough Superior and is ready to show the 2 all new models (rigid and rear sprung) based on the 1927 1000cc Alpine Grand Sport Model but of course using today’s materials. Mark will take orders and deposits for bespoke Brough Superiors, and as it was in the past, following each client wish list will make each of them truly unique. Want to know more?
