Curtis yes what a touch ,that's £32,209 in our pound notes, B4 brexit it would of been like 10 to 20% less, the 70 bonnie their also selling on eBay seems reasonable though ,we also have high end speculators in the dealer world & private owners that have put their premium on some norton,s like the limited domiracer http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/cat/15/643/domiracer/

Pretty sure Dominator SS #2 sold factory direct after a cancelled order for about 36k pounds. A friend of mine tried to buy it. But due to some sort of miscommunication at the factory someone else took it. Clearly there's still plenty of interest in certain models.

Fairly ambitious I'd say I seen a 2015 sport in at Frasers in Newcastle over here a couple of months back with only 600km on it for 22k AUD and that was ticket price. Don't know how it went but it wasn't there two weeks ago.

Hello , Clearly the 1 of 50 SE made carries the heavy price tag. I know I wouldn't pay that . I would order a new MKII for much less money and all the fixes implemented .

Hello Brtifan60 ., How much should the price have been to sell it ? Would you say not more than a new model ? That's what I would say . Not more than a new model . He should have tried to sell it long before now I suppose to get his 1 of 50 premium . I wish these owners would actually ride their bikes , and get them out on the road and in the public where they can be seen and appreciated. I really think that people are taking this work of art stuff too far. These are beautiful bikes !

Since the bikes are relatively the same, I can't see that much of a premium. Its not like a Cuda with a 426 hemi. 40K and the bike is brand new? Maybe in 30 years. Put a limited number on anything these days and the whole world goes nuts. Sure wish I didn't let my daughter play with her Spice Girls dolls. Geez. :roll:

Hi Tony, I guess without collectors Norton would sell, say 25% less bikes = less profit = less development etc.
Also you wouldn't, in 40 years time be able to find "new" machines, never been on the road, or with very little mileage!!

Also its the old saying, "Its only worth what it sells for"!!

Second owner is selling it already. That's #6 and is in a different league in my opinion. Didn't they sell for 50K pounds originally?

Pretty sure they were either £25K or £30K ,but I will stand corrected I saw loads of them in a factory tour in October 2015,at the time they said to me ur never see so many again in one place,& like the new V4 they do look better in the flesh & quite striking,Mr Garner always has the first one of the model ,so that number 6 is only one of 49 for the UK you are ever likely to get your hands on,the other 150 bikes were for oversea,s
