In 2013, after decades of dormancy, the legendary Brough Superior marque was resurrected by Mark Upham. The reconstituted company went on to produce several 'continuation' examples of Vintage-era Brough Superior SS100s while negotiating with Thierry Henriette of Toulouse-based Boxer Design to produce an entirely new Brough Superior motorcycle. Upham insisted on retaining visual cues linking the new motorcycle with its historic ancestors, as well as continuing the original ethos of the 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, with production commencing in 2016.

The new SS100 features an 88-degree, 997cc, v-twin engine with water-cooling and DOHC four-valve cylinder heads, designed and built by Boxer Design. The engine produces 120bhp in standard tune and functions as a stressed member of the chassis, the latter being constructed of titanium, carbon fibre, and aluminium. Up front is a Fior-based fork, reminiscent of the pre-war girder type, with mono-shock suspension at the rear and Öhlins hydraulic dampers at both ends. Sourced from the aircraft industry, the Beringer front brakes feature four rotors and radial callipers. The fuel tank, seat cowl, mudguards, and side panels are hand-crafted in aluminium, and the SS100 weighs a little under 400lbs dry, making it among the lightest 1,000cc bikes on the market. The list price at time of launch was a shade under £45,000 but by the time Motorcycle News got to test a production version in 2018 that had risen to £59,999. "No mass-produced machine will ever give you such a sense of occasion every time you turn a wheel," declared MCN. "...it's a worthy successor to the original, and you'll never feel more special carving through the British countryside".

The second production SS100 made, the machine offered here was built specially for the current owner, many-time Bonneville Speed Week competitor Eric Patterson, and was presented to him at the Excel exhibition. There is a commemorative plaque on the fuel tank. Originally registered 'HJ16 HVT', it now carries the personal registration 'B2 EGP'. Last run in March 2020, the machine is presented in effectively 'as new' condition having covered a mere 888 kilometres (approximately 550 miles) from new (the speedometer was changed by the factory at 800km and the current reading is 88km). All maintenance, upgrades, etc has been carried out by Motocorsa of Ashmore, Dorset. Offered with a V5C document, this stunning machine represents a wonderful opportunity to own one of the most talked about motorcycles of recent times.
