    If you have an SE post the number of 200 and the year. Also if the wheels are Carbon or spoke and if it's a dual Seat.

    Looking forward to seeing whats out there.

    Mine is 'USA 12 of 50', I don't know where that number fits in with the 1-200 scheme.
    It is black with alloy rims / spoke wheels.

    Do you want the SE numbers of the 200 original bikes,or the extra 50 I hear are being sent to the US ?
    If that is the case there will be 250 ?
    Only a rumour but came from a good source.

    This is why I've been keeping track, I heard, also from a credible source, that the USA 1-50 bikes are replacing 50 of the 200#'s. so 200 in Total. However, in no particular order. and again, no proof to back it up either way.

    Atmain>> if you happen to get the #'s and years (likely 2014) could you post it please. Would love to solve this USA puzzle and it would be cool to see where all the SE's are going. Once complete, or 90% complete I'll post it up here to share.


    I need all of your help.
    Here's what I have so far including, wheels, which so far are all done the way an SE should be which is FULLY LOADED with Carbon and USD forks, etc. and country and in some cases town/city;
    1,3,6,15,24,25,38,46,47,68,69,71,81,87,107,112,113, 136, 142, 190,195,200

    and USA#12-50 thanks to TERRYS which is the only one so far with spoke wheels which prompted this whole thing because I want to know if there are 200 SE's and then 50 USA SE's. Either way, still really cool to have and if there are an additional USA only 50 then that will be super rare!!! KEEP YOUR BIKE TERRYS!!!

    961s as a species are pretty rare anyway. Ive seen 2 on the road in UK in 2 years.... One was in Central London last year and one was at a Cambridge bike show this July

    Well, that's two more than the number of original Commandos I've seen on the road in the past 2 years! :wink:

    Mine is a SF and not a SE I do not believe it is part of a numbered release, as it has no number plate on the instrument cluster. It is a red dual seat, USD forks, spoked / alloy wheels. As my profile states, I am US based in Florida

    No Number :?:
    Took delivery of a 2014 SE with wire wheels in December and both the tags on the gauge cluster say the same thing "Hand-Built at Donington Hall" (looks retarded to me). No response form dealer or factory as to why.

    I had been told that all U.S. SEs were controlled by South Bay Triumph (Norton) in SoCal, as a result of their early stint as U.S. distributor. Were they involved in your purchase?

    I'm still confused why SE's were being delivered in 2014. Wasn't that the original 961 model starting around 2010 before they made a few changes?
    When I ordered in early 2014 they offered only the SF, Cafe Racer, or Sport.

    Norton say they will build you a bike to your specs, if you want a bike like the SE they will build you one but it won't be numbered as it wasn't one of the original bunch ;)

    I heard Norton no longer offers the BST Carbon Rims that came on the SE's.

    no carbon’s ?? interesting as it was supposed to b guaranteed that the bike would b delivered per spec at the time of deposit ... due to shortages of std forks , a number of SE models were delivered with USD forks at no extra charge. a 5K upgrade. so to find out one is not getting what was in the contract is a real disappointment.

    Keep in mind I do not work at or for Norton. I am simply an SE owner and a fan of Norton. So please take anything I say with a grain of salt. So, this is what I have heard from reliable sources but doesn't mean it's the be all end all.

    Let me clear this up, No Carbon Rims unless you have an SE, so the option of those BST carbon rims like on the SE may not be available on any other bike. Also, the thing that really confuses me is the SE models are supposed to be the top of the line every option like better brakes, usd forks, carbon rims, yet in the USA I've seen pics of SE models with spokes and Standard forks ??????

    My earlier reply about wheels was to to DER
    "Norton say they will build you a bike to your specs, if you want a bike like the SE they will build you one but it won't be numbered as it wasn't one of the original bunch ;)"

    Hope this helps.

    According to my 2009 961 brochure, USD forks and radial brakes were not included in the original specification, only the Ohlins "RWU" forks and "axially mounted" Brembo Gold Line calipers.

    Oh cool, thanks for the info. It must be a CANADA only thing then. When my dad placed his bike deposit, we were told that the SE's all have USD forks, carbon Rims, better brakes and the 1of# tag with the matching serial number. Perhaps the CDN distributor wanted it this way. I took this as globally. Or....... something changed after the initial release of bikes???? Too bad someone from Norton doesn't chime in on this board.
