The Norton V4  The frame is Sponden All the parts made in house that Donington park workshop on there CNC machine tools, The engine  is Aprilia based theres lots of parts on the engine that made by Norton  in the tool room  You look at a Aprillia Engine And look At The Norton V4 They look near the same. But There is a big diffrence in the two  Aprillia As not helped Norton In any way .   So your All speculating Before  They Have Done any thing . Just sit back and see  What Happens ..........Yours     AJD
