Ariel Motor the British firm famous in recent times for the its four wheeled antics that resulted in the Ariel Atom has now shifted focus to two wheels and have announced the Ariel Ace. Every bit the radical machine that was always expected from the guys at Ariel. The Ariel Ace motorcycle has a modular design comprising of a 6 section aluminium trellis frame. Suspension duty are carried out by Ohlins at both ends and just in case the already graceful and beautiful golden USD forks do not give you the visual thrills you can also opt for the girder setup based on the Ohlins TTX. You have option of either Nissin or Brembo brakes while ABS and traction control are standard equipment. The whole frame is made in such a way that there are multiple mounting points for various accessories and for replacement of standard parts with other custom ones.
Powering the Ariel Ace motorcycle is the engine from the Honda VFR1200F, that means you have a 1237cc V4 engine with the option of a dual clutch transmission making a powerful statement on the Ariel Ace. This Honda engine produces 170 horses and a healthy 122 Nm of torque, and anticipating the Ariel Ace to be super light, expect that to convert into some brilliant power to weight ratio figures. No exact specifications yet and no mention of a price either.
