The Ariel Ace R Limited Edition Superbike Is A Honda-Powered Beast
Ariel, a company mostly known for its incredible Ariel Atom and the recently launched Ariel Nomad, is also taking over the two-wheel market, with a cool motorcycle dubbed as the Ariel Ace. Unveiled two years ago, this impressive bike was pretty successful, and now it’s better than ever with the new Ariel Ace R, a limited-run, tuned-up version of this superbike that’s just scarily good.
Similar to the company’s outrageous vehicles, this bike offers an intense experience, complemented by unique looks and the thrills of a lifetime. Each Ariel Ace is constructed upon an aluminum perimeter frame, that’s milled from solid billets over 70 hours of work, complemented by extreme power and an amazing attention to detail.
Powered by a 1,237cc V4 Honda engine, that’s good for about 173 hp, the ‘standard’ Ariel Ace will easily do 0 to 97 km/h (60 mph) in just 3.1 seconds and max out at 165 mph (265 km/h). Now, the new and improved Ace R model will apparently feature a modified V4 1200 Honda UK engine, that’s capable of delivering even more power and of course, more thrills.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any specific details about its performance figures yet, but we know the Ariel Ace R will show off a one-of-a-kind color scheme that will make only 10 lucky owners smile. Curious about the costs or if you could tame this beast?
