    Now that the Norton V4 is theoretically available for purchase the factory have been having trouble making large numbers of frames instead of the hand built one offs

    They have called in Suter to help sort this and also get the emissions sorted

    Pretty bike! I bet it gets super hot sitting out on the sun though. It seems all chrome like finishes do.

    The fairing is carbon fibre, hand made alloy tank, the frames get 26 hrs of polishing ....the finish on these bikes is perfect

    Ugh, thanks but no thanks. Maybe the Harley crowd will love all that chrome, but for me it's way,
    way too much.

    Why do all that carbon fiber and then cover it up with fugly chrome crap.
