Loving the Morganesque grille. Now, I wonder if..... innocent

The design looks a little like a retro styled Grinnall Scorpian to me. Planenut can tell you how 'scary-fast' they are!

I can certainly confirm that the K1200RS engined Scorpion I had for 5 years was "Scary Fast". It was chipped and had about 140bhp with under 400 Kg to move. The newer ones have a lot more power! It was well engineered and reliable too....

Years ago I had a passenger ride in a Scorpion around the old Anglsea circuit.

I was blown away at how fast it was and how well it handled.

I don't know - I appreciate the engineering, the creativity, and the performance, but it just doesn't have the gestalt of the M3W.

For me, it's sort of like those Goldwings with the training wheel rears, I'm sure they are pleasant to ride, but seem to be neither fish no fowl. I'll take my 12yr old Lotus Elise out to carve corners all day. and the M3W when I want to do some serious motoring! Neither pretends to be like the other.

I would like to see a detailed engine and drivetrain peeking out from under the rear body work, perhaps via upswept bodywork (ala the electric M3W).

I am in the middle of buying an M3W and the low tail is the only part that concerns me. I don’t think the Ace 2.0 will have that issue.

I mounted a dash mounted rear view mirror which really helps see what is directly behind me. Although at speed the vibration makes headlights look like zeros

I am more concerned about the angle and depth of dips in the roadway. Like driveway aprons, loading ramps for ferryboats and steep driveways and getting the tail ground off on the pavement.

Obviously i am also concerned about vehicles directly behind me and in blind spots and the possibility of having to suddenly go offroad to get out of someones way. Getting slammed from behind is not a good thing, i have had it happen in cars and on motorcycles so I am very conscientious of whats around me. In spite of all that I am a believer that Murphy is on the Payroll and if something can go wrong it will.

one of the things I am learning is to watch for dips and potholes in the middle of the road and you suddenly get that "bump" up your bum.

The only time I scrapped the rear was backing into a parking spot, but I imagine ferry ramps and steep driveways might be an issue. Might need a spotter.
