Ultra-desirable Brough Superior Lawrence Dagger cuts a dash


Brough Superior has expanded its ultra-exclusive, high-end Lawrence range with a new, sportier variant: the Brough Superior Lawrence Dagger.

Purveyors of luxury, high-end motorcycles, Brough Superior - founded in Britain but resurrected in France in 2014 - launched the exquisitely finished Lawrence in 2021 as the latest addition to a steadily growing range of retro-inspired, lavishly appointed motorcycles to join the SS100, Pendine and Anniversary.

Now for 2023, Brough Superior has revealed the ‘Dagger’, a more contemporary, sporting-themed version of its range-topper.

At the front, the Dagger gains new bodywork with a funnelled nose cone section leading down to a porthole headlight, a fork crown, rear fender and seat cowl made of carbon-fibre. It also receives a more discreet exhaust form compared with the standard Lawrence for a leaner side-profile appearance.

An off-gold finish to the 17-inch rims, engine cover and decals completes the moody new look, while retaining all of the beautifully-styled attention to detail.

Under the skin, the Lawrence Dagger retains the same 997cc V-Twin engine, which - at 102bhp - has been tuned to provide more thumping low down grunt than high-end performance.

Joining the Lawrence Original and Lawrence Nefud in the range, pricing for the Brough Superior Lawrence Dagger is yet to be announced. However, with the aforementioned Original and Nefud coming in at €66,900 (£58,000) and €68,800 (£60,000) respectively, they should serve as something of a guide.

The Dagger isn’t the only fresh news to come from Brough Superior this week with the firm announcing it is stepping up its relationship with high-end British automotive firm Aston Martin with the launch of a more performance-oriented version of its collaborative sportsbike project, the AMB001 PRO.
