Fantastic bike Norton goes from strength to strength the one at the bike show stopped everyone wanting look at the sound was amazing. Cant wait for the T T
I HOPE SO ! There is very good competetion in that segment. Buyers are expecting a lot and getting it with the larger manufacturers . Now Ducati claims highest HP etc. Testers still like the Aprilia even with less power . The TT will be very hard to be top 3 . They (everyone) are getting faster every year . This is no easy task . Norton should be commended for doing this . BUT the bike needs to be PERFECT PLEASE !
In the class, peak power isn’t the deciding factor in terms of the motorcycles ability to any normal rider! So I’m not surprised testers prefer something other than the most powerful.
