Norton picture: proof of full production

This is the picture that sceptics thought they'd never see and proves reborn Norton is now in full production.  In next week's MCN, out on Wednesday June 2, we get exclusive access to Norton's factory, and watch production of the £15,995, 961 Commando SE. Around 30 examples of the retro-styled, twin cylinder roadster have now been completed, with 20 already delivered to...

Lovely Picture

If Mr. Bloor doesn't want to build an upscale triumph twin this will certainly fill the gap.  I wonder if there are any plans to bring the bike to America?

great bike

seen this bike up close, the build quality is amazing, billeted aluminium front calliper bracket is up there with bimota finesse and holds top line ohlines suspension is place, carbon fiber wheels,,,,love them, the whole bike looks fantastic!i think brit bikes combines the style of the Italians with the build quality of the japs now we have earned the lessons from the past. ............................. mind for me the cafe racer sounds very very nice and you get nearly as nice bike for £12000 which is a nice saving

scary moment

I read the heading and thought it was Graham Norton! Thank God, it's two wheeled production.

I wish them every success

In 1992 on the day the then Norton concern went into administration, I took delivery of my new F1. Nearly twenty years later I still love the bike. It is thirsty, not quick by modern standards, but the Spondon frame and quality components still mean it handles as good as anything else I have ridden. With 130,000 miles on it, it still puts a smile on my face. 

I wish the factory all the best for the future, and hopefully the next generation rotary will make it to production, because I will have one. The build quality of the new Nortons look to be top drawer, and another UK manufacturer of motorcycles is most welcome.

My wife is on her third Hinkley produced Triumph, and I am on my second 955i Daytona. Riding something made in the UK is something that makes this middle aged bloke proud.  

I think they have achieved a great deal since stepping out on their dream and wish them continued success.

Best of Luck

I understand the UK version has been extensively and professionally modified to eliminate any 'rough edges' of the original USA version.
