AMP Research / B4 Mercedes / 1997

In collaboration with AMP and Mercedes-Benz the AMP B4 was a unique finish on the classic AMP silhouette. The bike was designed in full by AMP Research and later was given to Mercedes-Benz to commission a limited number of bikes. These bikes were given the Mercedes tag and came with custom Mercedes parts machined and built with the intention to make the bike lighter. A blue finish was given to the frame distinguishing it from other AMP bikes of the time.
