Remember the Ariel Ace? The VFR1200F-powered street bike from the revived British brand? The attractive street bike is about to get an even sportier sibling (sketched above), as the Ariel Ace R is set to debut at the NEC Motorcycle Live show, this November.
Unless you are well-coined, the NEC show might be your only chance to see an Ariel Ace R in the flesh, as the Brits plan on making only 10 examples of this R-spec machine.
Details are light at the moment, but Ariel does day that the Ace R will have a unique color scheme, and of course there will be better performance pieces and more power from the limited edition motorcycle.
While we might think that building off of the VFR platform is misstep for the British marque, Ariel is making some truly beautiful machines in its factory, two and four wheels alike. We’re quickly becoming big fans.
As such, it is worth spending some time examining the Ariel Ace in person, as clever details abound. Or, if you can’t make it to the NEC Motorcycle Live show, you can click on the high-resolution photos below.
We should have more details on the Ariel Ace R in a couple weeks’ time.
