An icon built for icons, Brough Superior’s Super Sports 100 was designed for the roaring 20’s most adventurous and fabulous lovers of beautiful mechanics and speed. A favorite of the likes of Lawrence of Arabia (who himself owned seven), the SS100 has firmly secured its place as a landmark luxury in the history of fine motors.
The “100” in SS100 stands for this special motorcycle’s maximum speed. A certificate packaged with each handcrafted bike assured the buyer that the motorcycle has been timed at 100mph or more on the quarter mile. The classic design, sleek finish, and peak performance of this model has made it the emblematic standard of Brough Bikes.
Now, this model has been modernized with the finest details. Its iconic straps are energized by their new tilt, which gives dynamic movement to the tank. The front and rear mudguards have been revamped with more fluid, sportier curves. The SS100’s headlight surround has evolved with a radius that softens its shape and echoes the evolution of the bodywork.
Each SS100 is custom built, down to the last detail and designed to soar seamlessly as an extension of the rider.
