Ariel Ace Motorcycle Revealed: Ariel’s First Two-Wheeled Product In 50 Years

Ariel is known for its ultra naked, hardcore and track oriented four wheeled machines but today, with a new product in hand, Ariel has stepped into a different territory. The iconic sports car manufacturer has revealed its first all new two wheeled product in more than five decades.

Christened Ariel Ace, the motorcycle, just like the Ariel Atom, is naked and looks stunning. The Somerset firm will start the production of the Ace in 2015 with plans of making 100 to 150 units a year. The company will produce the Atom sports car alongside the newly introduced Ace at its Crewkerne facility.

As per Ariel, Honda has assisted them in developing this beautiful machine and this is quite evident from the fact that the Atom is powered by Honda’s VTEC engine. As far as the configuration of Ace is concerned, the engine and the drive train will be sourced from Honda while the build system is entirely new and developed exclusively by Ariel. Powering the Ace will be a 1237 cc V4 engine producing 173 bhp at peak.

With 173 horses on tap, the Ace can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and can reach a top speed of 265 km/hr or 165 mph.

Just like the way Ariel offers the Atom, it will be offering the Ace as well. There will be an array of customisation options available on the Ace, making it one of the most unique motorcycles to arrive in the market. The customisation options will include different bodyworks, different exhausts, front and rear suspension variants, single or dual (pillion) seats and a variety of colours, materials and finishes.

The all new two-wheeled machine from Ariel will make its debut at the upcoming Goodwood Festival Of Speed and is expected to be priced at £20,000 and upwards.
