Norton Café Racer SP v Triumph Thruxton – coming soon!

1 of 2

In an exclusive first test, next week’s MCN sees Norton’s stunning new, all-black Café Racer SP – one of the stars of the NEC Show before Christmas – pitted head-to-head with that other great, British café racer, the Triumph Thruxton.

Although priced at opposite ends of the spectrum – the Norton’s £14,499 while the Triumph is £6949, with the contrast in specifications equally great – both follow a similar theme for retro-inspired, twin cylinder café racers.

But what makes the Norton so special? And is it worth the extra? Check out next week’s issue, on sale January 12, to find out.
