Legendary car manufacturer Aston Martin has thrown its hat into the bicycle ring with the launch of the One-77 superbike, which we reckon features enough gadgetry to persuade James Bond to switch to two wheels.

The limited edition model which is now on sale may look familiar; it borrows some of the technology used in the Factor001 - hailed as the most advanced bike ever made. This model is a refined version of that bike and re-badged with the heavyweight branding of Aston Martin.

The One-77 bike has had some major revisions when compared to the Factor001. The one-off hydraulic disc brakes are now activated using Shimano Dura-Ace shift levers. This has been made possible by using a dual master cylinder system - The V-Twin, provided by Hope and now available for cyclocross bikes. All hydraulic brake lines are housed internally within the frame and fork and even the hydraulic connections to each caliper are tucked away within the brake mounts.

The handlebar/stem assembly has been modified from the original Factor001 design and the crankset has moved from an ISIS to a press-fit bottom bracket system. LED lights are integrated into both the seat tube and handlebar areas and are controlled via hood mounted buttons.

Like the Factor001, Aston Martin's bike features a 'motorsport-derived data logging system'. This primarily comes via performance feedback which gives over 100 channels of data including speed, temperature, rate of climb and power, plus more advanced data such as accelerometers to measure lean, and biometric data such as ECG, respiration rate and core body temperature. The fully revised cranks now communicate to the handlebar mounted head unit via the ANT+ wireless protocol and are able to offer real time data on a riders torque and power delivery. The head unit also sports a Bluetooth connection to connect with and share data to smartphones and other devices.

Over 100 channels of data are accessible from the head unit

Each One-77 bike has been built in Norfolk, England and every example takes seven staff a full two weeks of work to complete. The company behind the technology and manufacturing, Factorbikes, is a subsidiary of a firm - bf1 systems - which provides products to the motorsport industry.

All this is going to cost you a cool £25,000. For your money you get a full carbon frame, Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 7970 groupset, disc brakes, full carbon 8-spoke wheels and handlebars complete with both paintwork and leather bar tape that echoes options available for the One-77 supercar, the vehicle Aston Martin say inspired the bike.

You'll need to move fast should you want one - only 77 will be available worldwide and we know that at least five of those have already been purchased - but we've yet to confirm if Mr Bond will make this his commuting weapon of choice.
