I'm pretty confident that everyone who has ridden one says it feels like a modern Commando. Obviously the person who designed the bike was very familiar with Nortons and it's not just a sticker.Murray B said:When I heard they were going to make Nortons again I was overjoyed but when I saw the bike and the price I nearly cried. It is not enough to stick a Norton decal on something and call it a Norton. The bike must actually have the characteristics of one.
Take the decal off and try to find anything about it that is Norton-like. Practically every Norton I have read about always had the crankshaft centre below the line of the wheel centres. They called it low "lean weight". This new bike is massive and top heavy just like all the killer "stoppie" bikes that everyone else makes. I think I'm going to go and have a good cry now.
