Norton V4 tech analysis

Norton was brought back into British hands in 2009. After tqo previous attempts, Norton is back at the TT in just a few weeks with two almost completely new 1000cc V4 bikes, two riders and a bundle of determination to make this the start of a new racing era for the firm. Here's the technical lowdown on the new bike. Ram-air...

Substance Please!

Sill a lot of fancy talk from Mr Garner. Now, any chance of this 'talk' manifesting into results? You sure spend a lot of money on an incredible (to the Manor born) lifestyle, complete with Manor House!

"bespoke Norton electronics"?

Please don't piss away your journalistic credibility doing Norton's marketing for them in return for a stay at Norton Towers. The idea of Norton commissioning bespoke electronics - hardware, as opposed to software - for two bikes is just ludicrous. This is a parts bin special, they know it, you know it, we know it.

It's an Aprilia based mongrel. Hardly game changing?

Great link piglet2010. I thought everything was fine with Norton as I have never heard of any of this being reported in MCN. Why not?

Wow, Piglet, nice one

Now enough about Norton, how about some coverage of that WK 650i Chinese ER6 copybike racing at the TT, which is a vehicle that we can actually go out and buy.

Good Luck

I hope they get to race their bike this year. Although I still think they should have waited until they had their own engine before putting the Norton name on the tank, or at least change the name of Spondon, a company they own, to Norton so the bike justifies its name.

Bob, this is a sham business, on a folly to generate money! The sad thing about it is: Garner has dragged the Norton name through the gutter for his own personal gains. The motorcycle media is to blame for a lot of what this person 'deviously' promotes. http://www.bikerglory.com/2012/08/the-norton-saga/
