Read the world’s first and so far only riding review of Norton’s new Commando 961 SE on motorcyclenews.com!
Executive Editor Phil West was granted a world exclusive first ride of the British-built machine at Donington Park last month and was hugely impressed with the all-new, limited edition, £16,000 machine.
He said: “This test was never going to answer all the Norton questions, nor silence all the doubters, but it’s a significant milestone along that road.
“But on this evidence we can with some certainty say the following: the 961 has a great chassis and ergonomics, fantastic quality and style and… a merely OK-to-good engine – but one that’s still probably enough.
“But even so it is most definitiely is a ‘feel good’ bike par excellence. It gives riding and owning pleasure by the skip-load and is a machine you’ll park up and spend hours admiring in the garage with a cuppa.”
