Known as 'the Rolls-Royce of motorcycles', Brough Superior made it's name due to their high quality, speed and power. The SS100, or Super Sports 100, is a staple that pushed the brand name to international and timeless recognition. Founder George Brough first launched the SS80 in 1923. The number refers to the warranted top speeds of the motorcycle. The SS100 was launched in 1924 and had a guaranteed top speed of no less than 100mph, it is said each motorbike was tested to ensure these high speeds before being sold.
In 1940, George Brough's factory stopped production, and these motorcycles quickly became sought after collectors items. However, in 2008, Englishman Mark Upham bought the rights to the Brough Superior name. A long-time Brough enthusiast, Mark spent most of his life restoring motorcycles. This has instilled a deep respect for the heritage of the brand as well as the craft behind it. Brough is once again producing their SS100 and thanks to Mark, they are doing so without compromising any technical or design components.
