The famous English brand Norton Motorcycles, after being saved from bankruptcy in 2020 thanks to the substantial investments made by the Indian giant TVS, resumed the activity by presenting the Commando 961 and the definitive version of the sporty V4SV last year, powered by a four cylinder V with an angle of 72° and 1200 cc credited with 185 HP at 12,500 rpm, and 125 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm.
The V4CR is now born from this technical basis, a café racer powered by the same engine, whose British technicians have chosen to keep the power and torque values unchanged, combined with the same hand-built aluminum frame, however revised in the geometries. The entire bike, as well as the frame, was assembled by hand and sports an Ohlins upside down fork, double disc with Brembo radial calipers and an OZ aluminum rim. At the rear we find an Ohlins single shock absorber connected to a nice single-sided swingarm, single disc and aluminum rim.
The exhaust terminal was developed ad hoc for this model with titanium collectors and terminal with carbon end cap. The electronic equipment is also rich, which includes ABS with cornering function and three driving modes: Street, Sport, Rain.
