Ariel Motor has prepared a big surprise for its fans. The company has revealed that they developed an all-new model which will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on 26-29 June.
For the moment we don’t have many details about Ariel’s upcoming motorcycle, but we certainly now that it will be a performance cruiser.
Keeping it up with Ariel’s tradition, the new cruiser will be built after the individual requirements of its future owners, so there will be a wide range of accessories and tasty features to choose from.
Rumors say that the new model will borrow the Honda VFR1200’s engine, namely a liquid-cooled 1237 cc V4 which cranks out 170 horsepower at 10,000 rpm and a 129 Nm (95 lb-ft) of torque at 8.750 rpm. The engine will be paired with the same Dual Clutch transmission found in the VFR1200. Unfortunately we don’t know if the new model will borrow more parts from its donor, but we do hope that Ariel will come up with its own chassis and frame.
Stay tuned for more details.
