Norton V4

Posted by denis_bourne at November 27. 2016

Just got back from the Motor cycle live show at the NEC and the Norton stand was buzzing with people with Stuart Garner and team answering questions on the new Norton V.4. What a stunning bike and the finish and detail is superb. British design at it's best we will need this sort of forward thinking when Brexit kick's in, well done to the team at Norton.

Den Bourne.

I agree what an enthusiastic team they are producing brilliant machinery with such integrity.

I have tried to upload photos but even reducing the size I am having problems.    I have uploaded photos to the Access Norton site.  This link would take you there.

Graham:

I don't see a V-4, only a 961 Cafe

There should be four photos in all. Two of a Dominator Naked, a custom bike they had prepared and two of the V4.   I can see all four on my screen

I guess that I am seeing it but, the photo of the bike with the black fairing is so indistinct to be of no use.

Anyone else have any photos or magazine articles?

Mike

Michael   This site allows reduced size and therefore quality of the photos.   As I said before maybe follow the link above.

If you click on the photo it will take you to Graham's original and much larger photos.

Anyway, I like the naked Dominator is the tank a normal aluminium unit or more of a brushed/satin finish? Hard to tell with the lights. Less is certainly more with the Dominator in my opinion.

I recently changed the rear lights on my bike to an LED strip that incorporates rear light, stop light and indicators. I quite like how it turned out. Allowed me to move the number plate from the stock position which I really did not like to under the tail.

Here's a couple of promo shots of the V4.

OK, I have seen the number of photos of the bike with fairings on.

That's well and good but does anyone have a photo of the naked engine?

Thanks

Mike

Re. 'pictures of the engine', the January Roadholder should be with you between Christmas and New Year - the front cover should help fitting the bill ... .

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all you Noccers.

Sorry Roger I missed your question. I bought the lights of eBay. They vary from a couple to 10 pounds but look like the same product. Although I bought two from the same seller (a few weeks apart) the first one had an instruction sheet with a wiring diagram. The second had no instructions and different colored wires!
