The 1947 Ariel VB 600 has, at its heart, an air-cooled, four-stroke, 598cc, single cylinder powerplant mated to a four-speed manual transmission, and can produce a claimed 15 HP (11.2 Kw) at 4400 rpm. The key features for this post-war machine would be the laced wheels, a dual seat, plunger shocks as a rear suspension, a telescopic front fork, an analogue instrument cluster, a wide handlebar, full fenders, a large headlight and a drum braking system.
