Not a Norton

This is not a Norton.This is just a publicity stunt that will backfire on Norton.The firm should be developing road bikes and trying to get the prices down to stimulate more sales.Norton is wasting taxpayers money loaned to them by the government chasing a folly.If Norton want to go racing it should be with a Norton engine and frame,then they might sell more road bikes because it will be impossible to survive without volume sales.
