The Brough Superior make and name was purchased by a Jersey-registered corporation, operated by Mark Upham. He quickly asked Thierry Henriette to operate the development of new Brough Superior Motorcycles. Thierry Henriette, CEO of the French design company Boxer Design, is now the owner of the Brough Superior Factory. He financed and operated the development of a new SS100 in respect to the original ethos of the Brough Superior marque - innovation, excellent design, and superior construction and materials. The new Boxer-designed Brough Superior SS100 first appeared at the EICMA show in Milan in 2013; serial production began in 2016.
The new Brough Superior SS100 features an 88 degree, 990cc vee-twin engine, with water cooling and DOHC four-valve cylinder heads, designed and built by Boxer Design. The engine produces 120 hp in standard tune, and the chassis uses the engine as a stressed member, with a Fior-based front fork with Öhlins shock absorber, with Öhlins monoshock rear suspension. The chassis is made entirely of exotic materials, including titanium, carbon fibre, and aluminium. The front brakes are from Beringer, with four rotors, sourced from the aircraft industry. The minimal bodywork is constructed of hand-hammered aluminium, including the fuel tank, seat cowl, fenders, and side covers. The dry weight of the SS100 is just under 400lbs, making it among the lightest 'litre bikes' ever produced for street use.
This very handsome Brough Superior SS100 is number 100 of 300 the vendor chose 100 as it denotes the model. The vendor flew to France and placed the order directly from the Brough works in St-Jean France and had it delivered to Moto Corsa Salisbury 2017. It was ordered with an optional extra of the race kit (different exhaust system and K&N filter) Originals come with the machine. The current vendor decided from the off it was going to be used and enjoyed, and that has been the case since ownership. The SS100 then went back to France in 2019 for all the upgrades to be carried out and had a full service at the same time. The speedo was changed at that time due to a fault and the total mileage is 4,535 miles, over 348 journeys, taking 138-hours this is known due to a “biketrac” unit fitted from new. It comes complete with a current V5C all payment paperwork, correspondence, invoices from Moto Corsa, and all the DVLA and Nova paperwork. The vendor has enjoyed the Brough since his ownership and commented on it handling and performance.
