Limited edition Norton Dominator Street unveiled
Norton Motorcycles are to build 50 dramatic-looking Dominator Street machines after feedback from fans of the British firm and are appealing for £5m of investment as it gears up to build more new models.
The special-edition street-focused version of their Dominator model features a hand-made tank and upright bars, rather than clip-ons, with an Öhlins rear shock and the option for either adjustable USD or conventional Öhlins forks in the standard Dominator frame.
The bike also boasts a carbon hugger and front mudguard, a carbon airbox, a fly screen, polished yokes, engine covers and a drilled clutch cover and chainguard.
Norton CEO Stuart Garner said: "We’ve used the two-into-one exhaust seen on the Commando Street as it looks and sounds amazing. This bike is in response to potential customers asking for something a little easier and more comfortable to ride. We’re only building 50, but there’s already been a lot of interest and had quite a few orders."
The bike costs £21,950 and anyone interested in getting their hands on one needs to put down a £2000 deposit.

Providing an amplified soundtrack from the 961cc parallel-twin engine is a handmade two into one exhaust, which bypasses Euro emissions restrictions thanks to being sold using Single Vehicle Approval homologation, available to UK markets only.
Much like the conventional dominator, there’s a carbon hugger and front mudguard, alongside a fly screen, polished yokes, engine covers and a drilled clutch cover and chainguard. Also included is a carbon airbox.
