Commando 961

The current range of models from the relaunched Norton Motorcycles manufactured from 2010 onwards


Commando 961SE

961cc OHV   2010

  Commando 961SE-S    

The Commando 961SE was the first machine to be launched by the new Norton Motorcycles (UK) Ltd. in April 2010.  Just 200 examples of the 961SE were built as a limited edition signature series with many added extras.

The design was developed from Kenny Dreer's Commando 952, but in particular features a new engine from designers and builders MCT.  The engine is a 961cc pushrod parallel twin producing around 80HP.  This machine is also fitted with carbon fibre wheels and Ohlins shock absorbers and although it could be said to retain some of the overall look of the original Commando is packed with modern components and design features.

The 'on the road' price at pre-production launch was £15,995



Commando 961 Café Racer

961cc OHV   2010 - 

  Commando 961 Racer-S    

The Commando 961 Café Racer was one of two production variants introduced in 2010 after the 961SEs.  Using the same power plant as the SE, it has a different shock absorber system and conventional wheels instead of the carbon fibre ones.  This machine features its own Sports exhaust system together with a small fly screen and is available in a series of colours including Black/Gold, Red/Gold, Yellow/Black and Silver/Red/Black.

The 'on the road' price at pre-production launch was £13,495

The 'on the road' price at pre-production launch was £11,995
