    I must have read the specs wrong (240kg). That'd be one porker of a ride.

    Gary Inman has an article about it in the February issue of Cycle World. He was, shall we say, underwhelmed. And, yes, it is that porky.

    529# for not that much on it. Must be one of those typical heavy Honda engines.

    Re: Ariel Ace

    Its a shame because if it were lighter you could easily see people using it more in custom bikes. Doesn't look like a win unless you just want a piece of artwork.

    Think of it as a Diavel or VMax power sport cruiser and it makes more sense. No ones buying this cause they'er going to win a track day on it. They'er buying to roll through town looking like a BAMF. If you go too fast no one can see how awesome you are; so of course open face helmet or less is the only option. Why else would it have that ridiculously over the top yet under engineered but over designed frame.
