GREAT BRI­TISH BIKE OFF

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Best Brit Racers -

It’s been a long time since two Bri­tish bike com­pa­nies have built a cou­ple of ma­chines im­pres­sive enough to go head to head. But with Nor­ton’s con­tin­ued resur­gence and Tri­umph go­ing back to their café racer roots, the show­down was sched­uled. The Nor­ton Com­mando 961 and Tri­umph Thruxton R did bat­tle this sum­mer with the Thruxton prov­ing a near-per­fect pack­age. But the Nor­ton rolls back the years and its gnarly na­ture ap­pealed to the purists.
