Aston Martin Makes A Ridiculously Expensive Bike
$39,000. Yup, a normal price for a bicycle. Well, that is what Aston Martin thinks. The automaker follows the likes of BMW in producing a 2-wheeled luxury affair, but trumps the German’s by employing renowned British building Factor Bikes.
Their One-77 follows on from the Factor001, one of the most technically advanced cycling designs in the world.
The bike is equipped with Shimano Dura-Ace shift levers, and houses all brake lines within the frame and brake calipers within the mounts. That means, essentially, it is pretty darn sleek.
More advanced than the components is a “motorsport-derived data logging system” that gives riders detailed information about their workout… via Bluetooth. We guess that is where the real price hike comes into play. That, and the fact only 77 will hit market.
