Poll: Is the new Norton really a Norton?
18 April 2012 17:01
The front page of this week's MCN proudly reveals Norton's new V4 race bike, and the story inside explains how Norton went from a blank sheet of paper to running race bike in six weeks.
It's an astonishing feat, but skeptics are already questioning whether the bike is a true Norton, given that its engine is from an Aprilia and the chassis was made by Spondon. What do you think? If Norton engineers put together a bike in the Norton factory and choose to call it a Norton, is it one?
