Pendine was the place of speed and records from 1924 and the Pendine sands – with it’s long, golden beaches – were the home of Sand Racing and the Welsh TT.
According to the company, George Brough loved Pendine so much so that from 1928 he named his racing Bikes ‘Pendine’ and even gave the Pendine name to his home. So this new bike – announced today at EICMA – is a fitting tribute to the brand that bears his name.
As always with Brough Superior, if you need to ask the price then you probably can’t afford it – and of course prospective buyers will be able to take advantage of their bespoke services that allow a customer to determine the colour and finish of most surfaces as well as many of the components.
But seeing as you’re here and interested, the basic price of the Brough Superior Pendine Sands will cost £57,999 on the road and the first examples should start rolling off of the production line in late September 2018.
We recommend getting your orders in quick though if you are interested. Our fifteen minutes spent on the stand at EICMA today saw a lot of interest from prospective buyers.
