The new Norton I heard at the dealer sounded like it wouldn't make it out of the parking lot, I get investors wanting to cash in on retro bikes right now with the success of HD and Triumph but the new Norton's seem rushed. Like it was never intended to be ridden.

Put deposit down in November, not given a firm date yet, but am told it is only weeks away now.

UK launch is 23rd
I really think the Thruxton has the Norton beat in everyway and its half the price no contest NORTON looses

Might try and nail myself an Irving Vincent, road version of course.
I just like how it had been re engineered from ground upwards.
The race versions sound awesome at the Broadford track that's for sure.

It was the dealers launch, showing off their new demo's

They now have a vin number for mine, 'might' be this week.

Iwent to the NORTON festival last sunday and it was packed with BRIT bikes and bikes of every make the TRIUMPH DEALERS had all the new Twins there so we heard them run and sat on them the Thruxtons look great and I like the riding position and it sounds great looks like a winner all the new NORTONS were there they are ok BUT the Thruxton has them beat all way round nicer bike for 1/3 the price
