Norton 961/SS Commando

Norton’s motorcycles

I’ve had something of a theory regarding ’s motorcycles or more put a personal gut-feeling about machines. I’ve always them as a wolf in sheep’s and apparently the new 961/SS Commando comes to confirm this

Being a sport-biker, and more of a type at that, I can’t state that the design of bikes is or ever was particularly to me. However being a true at heart I can’t help a sound respect for pretty everything on two wheels. I’ve respected caffe racers and riding them whenever I got the since I personally consider to be the forefathers of modern day sport-bikes.

Of all caffe racers ( pre and post the Norton probably deserves of the credit for always remaining a racer at heart and continuing the to this very day, combining modern day technological with the design that is the trademark.

Bottom line about the Commando is that like its named 1970 brother, one is like sippin a rare French wine: one always what to expect of it and also it will always cater to the refined of tastes.

It is good to that there are certain in this world that simply put, always be for the passionate rider and that always deliver just the of experience they’re famous Norton bikes ARE among things.
