Should Norton build a more affordable Domiracer?

The new Norton Domiracer, unveiled in this week's MCN, is a limited edition cafe racer from the revived manufacturer with a carbon seat unit and open exhausts. No official price has been stated yet, but it's expected to be under £20,000 excluding VAT. Should Norton build a more affordable version? pollcomment

Good call moto4

I like moto4's idea.  An affordable "Manx Norton" with something like the KTM 390 or 690 engine would be great.  Install the restricted engine map and you'd have the coolest A2-compliant bike on the market.

 

The problem of course is production.  Norton's current facilities can only serve the premium-price, low-volume market.  They'd probably need an overseas manufacturing partner for mass-market production, as Triumph have.

Pity

It’s a fantastic looking bike and if it was a sensible price I recon they’d sell loads of them.

More Staff leave Norton

Looking at the Norton web site they need senior engineer and all round dogs body and a side kick whats gone wrong NOW not paid staff?.  Gardner must be having a bad day people leaving and the Rotary 700cc project scrapped only for Brian Crighton to get backing and make it happen. Norton should go back to making just tee shirts.  :lol: Andy
