Aston Martin to Produce a Two-Wheeled Version of the Famous One -77
Aston Martin have partnered with Factor Bikes to create "the world's most technologically advanced road bicycle"


Aston Martin doesn’t only make amazing vehicles, they’re now creating superbikes.

The One-77 Cycle, a two-wheeled version of the famous Aston Martin One-77 Coupe, will likely be the most technologically advanced bike in the world, once produced. 

The bike’s computer uses a complex array of sensors, including GPS, a rear-wheel speed sensor and a crank position sensor, to take performance analysis well beyond the speed and distance measurements of other systems. It will give cyclists a menu of more than 100 specific measurements, including crank torque, leg power and crank force, all broken down into left and right legs. Other measurements include acceleration, wasted leg power, rate of ascent and rear wheel speed. In other words, it’s akin to a sports labratory in the form of a bike.

Like the One-77 car, the bike uses loads of carbon fiber to keep weight as low as possible – the frame, fork and handlebars are all made from the lightweight composite material. Also, an integrated lighting system with high-intensity front LED and red rear LEDs will keep cyclists prepared for dusk.

There’s no listed price for this technological two-wheeler just yet, but Bike Radar reports that the bike will cost around £25,000. Those that have the money for this much bike can put in inquiries with Factor, but beware, as only 77 models will be built.
