Ariel is back!

170bhp, V4, hand-built, 100 made to measure bikes made each year :)

I love it.


FWIW, whilst they made many many excellent bikes in their time, their last one, made in 1970, the same year they folded,...well..not so much

Yes. Ariel Ltd. Not to be confused with the Ariel Motorcycles that gave us the square four.

It is not at all that Ariel is back, it is that there is a new Ariel.

I'm sure it's a hell of a machine. But that is hideous.

Do you get a blonde in a bikini with it like the old one?

My TU was super low budget. It came with a brunette in a sundress.

I was out in Pismo Beach in 1981 when I saw the first Square 4 I'd seen. A very cool configuration! The new model looks like it's going to be in Confederate territory, moneywise...

I'm sorry, that is one seriously ugly motorcycle.

She was too high maintenance though, so I returned her for store credit. Haven't decided what upgrade to go for.
