... well that’s what MCN said in this weeks editon, they’ve done a 250 mile road test on the new 1200.

To say it sounds impressive would be a tad of an understatement...

And why not?
There should be enough space underneath the bodywork to house the counter measures needed in case Spectre villains attach him.
Lasers, missiles, even an oil slick, it is a Norton after all.

Having been privileged enough to have now ridden a V4SS, I can quite honestly say it is possibly the nicest motorcycle I have ever ridden.

JB wouldn't need rockets and lasers, the thing is so damn fast he could just ride away.

And you only rode it in road mode Rob ;)
Hello Simon , It looks like the Atlas Nomad should have good leg room and a relaxed knee bend. Can we get more photos of people sitting on it , feet on ground and feet on pegs ? Is it also possible to consider a larger fuel tank and some accessories for touring ? Thanks !

Just read the review........ may just put a deposit down. Lead time should allow me to sell a few bikes and get the wife's permission.

However, they do say its easier to beg for forgiveness than seek permission.

Read the ‘quick fire’ questions on the 5th pic, according to SG that was due to having a pre prod fuel tank.
Hmm, a lot of pre-production faults for the No.1 of 200 production bike and 27MPG!!!! that must be running a VW control unit to pass EU emission rules.

Yeah but come on Ralph, who gives a flying f**k about MPG on a bike like that ?!?

I know I wouldn’t.

Oh but wait, I bet the SL has much better MPG...!
Plus, there is no storage for Derry Boots or a Belstaff and I cant believe Norton omitted a centre stand and that Paint won't stand up to salted roads in the winter.

Good point well made, and the bigger tank will allow 100 miles before having to go to the petrol station, again.
