2010 Norton Commando 961 SE

The 961 Commando SE represents a new beginning for Norton Motorcycles. Designed and built from the ground up, this bike continues the Norton legacy of defined style and performance.

This modern roadster reflects the soul of the original machine. Classic sculptural forms are combined with raw functionalism, laying beautiful shapes over a structural frame and muscular motor; resulting in a visual language that is both sensual and purposeful. With a very narrow waist and curves in just the right places, the 961 is a bike that feels as good as it looks.

Features and Specifications

Engine: Simple and direct engineering solutions are employed to create a motor that is visually and mechanically elegant; efficiently assembled in production, and easily maintained or upgraded in the owner’s garage.

Chassis: Carbon Fiber wheels reduce un-sprung weight; while 43mm, 3-way adjustable Ohlins front forks, and 4-way adjustable piggy back rear shocks provide an unparalleled connection with the road. Brembo Gold Line brakes combine excellent power and sensitive feedback. The chro-moly tubular steel frame and a 56.5 inch wheelbase, 24.5 degrees of rake and 4 inches of trail provide athletic handling in the mountain passes and relaxed handling in hi-speed sweepers or just along the open road.

Careful engineering analysis using FEA and physical testing has been employed to optimize the design for performance and safety.

Gauges Controls: The instruments are modern-classics; electronic control, traditional layout and modern LCD display features create an easy-to-read minimal effect. Tapered aluminum handlebars and quality switchgear round out the rider input and display components.
