When we went to the Ariel factory a few years ago, we asked the question about whether a tuned version of the Ace would be built. It was alluded to then, but in the form of the new R we finally have our answer.

This is done via Mark Woodage – aka Brains of paddock fame. A reworking of the bike’s internals will be married to a tweaked chassis, BST wheels and Öhlins specced to suit. Well, if you’re paying 60 grand for one, you’d want it to suit you, right?
