The new Commando has generated huge interest since Norton was bought a year ago, and the recently announced Café Racer and Sport variants have just added to the excitement about the classic British marque.

Norton’s new boss and architect of its rise is Stuart Garner. He said: “We’ll have all our bikes – the 961 SE, two Commando Sports and the Café Racer, plus our whole merchandise range. Visitors will be able to sit on all the bikes and either myself or Head of Design Simon Skinner – the people who actually developed the bikes – will be there to talk you through all the features.”

Garner said the whole Norton team had been overwhelmed by the recent public response to the bikes. “We went to the NEC, then to the LA Show in America and also to one in Toronto, Canada and we’ve had a fabulous uptake from all three shows.

"But as well as selling bikes, the other good news is how well the bikes have been received. When they see the new Norton in the flesh people have been impressed: they like the look, the silhouette and the build quality and it’s all given us confidence and proves that we’re here to stay. Our appearance at the MCN Show gives more people the chance to see the bikes for themselves.”

  • BMW
