The Norton revival just keeps getting better. The Cafe Racer is a sportier version of the Commando 961 SE, with retro wire-spoke black anodised alloy rims, superbike spec radially-mounted Brembo calipers and race-grade USD Ohlins forks.

There's something about air cooled, naked bikes and this one is no exception. They just look right. The modern touches like the rear light in the seat hump show attention to detail you'd expect on a bike of this price, which is around 40% too rich for my pocket. I became a convert back to twins when I bought my Bonnie and was reminded just how relaxing it could be to ride something with less than 100bhp and a spread of power. It's not quite the jewel that the MV F4 is but it comes close, and it doesn't need an acre of plastic to cover the hideous shape of a modern liquid cooled lump.

Would have to be a V-Twin for me.Parallel twins don't stir the soul enough.

nice bike for the rich didddy people, he looks so tall on that bike it looks stupid.
To expensive, the 650 cc bikes will walk all over it.
