Please NO!
I’m all for electric vehicles such as cars and trucks. But a electric Norton?! NO.

It's the future.... And more than likely will happen. There are some awesome performers out there, but let's hope whoever designs the one with a curly 'N' on the 'tank' isn't the sort to demand a bowl of water for his guide dog..

Well a design that's come from a square minded person and one that cannot think out of the box to me it looks like someone as nicked a door and cut two big holes in it with a Norton badge on the side and the only thing that's Norton is that badge

I believe the designer forgot the bike needs some batteries too ..... ;-)

IMHO, the future belongs to hydrogen-fueled bikes. For the space and weight limits available on a bike. only hydrogen will be a match to bikes running fossile fuels.

Well it should be much easier to recycle than a real motorcycle.
I don't mine them creating an electric Norton, just so long as it;s not called a Commando.

Looks like an optical instrument from the land of the giants; bet it still leaks ions or something! There will still be the need for an Access Norton (Super Modern) site to solve all technical issues! Wouldn’t work for me. There’s nothing to polish!:eek:

I’m ok with electric bikes. But this is hideous. At least one thing HD did was make theirs look good. And that’s hard for me to say about a HD. But the live wire is the best looking bike they have in my opinion.

I thought the seat on my Domi was hard. This electric norton has it beat lol

Norton went from very little steering angle of the 961 to zero on this electric motorcycle lol.

maybe it’s the Norton Zero.

I’d chillax dude...

I do not believe that ‘electric Norton’ is anything more than a fictional artistic impression.

Large unused empty space... inadequate battery space... no seat... science fiction wheelers... etc.

i imagine it would be a futuristic version of maglev. magnets in lamposts and another in/as the bike. same with wheels. wouldn't want to ride one tho. or see one in my life time. you couldn't drink enough to make that bike pretty.
