Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

Nor­ton Project En­gi­neer Si­mon Mar­shall ex­plains: “In truth there have been con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ments to the 961, so we re­alised that when you add up all those things and the dif­fer­ent colours and fin­ishes, it’s ef­fec­tively a whole new mo­tor­cy­cle com­pared to where we started. The whole op­er­a­tion has been con­stantly mov­ing for­ward, so that was an­other rea­son for the MKII – to mark an­other mile­stone.” • En­gine mods in­clud­ing new Nikasil lined cylin­ders; die rather than sand cast crankcases; im­proved crank; up­rated gear­box with bevel cut gears, plus new fin­ishes. • New stain­less steel ex­haust. • Up­rated brakes com­pris­ing new graphite-fin­ished Brembo Monobloc calipers. • New seat up­hol­stery with ‘ fluted’ pan­elling. • Cos­met­ics in­clud­ing a new head­lamp, top nut and colours.
