Makers of Ariel Atom Planning a Motorcycle


Ariel is planning a new venture into the world of fast superbikes.
According to a new report by Motorcycle News, English automaker Ariel is now getting into the motorcycle game sometime in 2012. Founded by avid motorcycle enthusiast Simon Saunders back in the early 1990s, the company's proposed new superbike will be powered by an unspecified Honda engine. The Japanese automaker currently provides engines for Ariel with the Civic Type R's being used to power the Atom.

The plan is for there to be up to 200 superbikes built per year and each one will be hand-built to satisfy the customer's personal specifications. Ariel wants to ensure that each superbike will be unique and one-of-a-kind. Final pricing is not yet available, but it's estimated that it will begin at around £20,000, or roughly $32,000 with the current market.
