MCN Says

Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW -

This is the fourth year I’ve made a pre-tt visit to the Nor­ton fac­tory and it amazes me how far they’ve come. The first year I went the SG3 was spit­ting fire on the dyno, and cer­tainly looked cool, but it went on to strug­gle to com­plete a lap come the TT. That has changed and it is now one of the trick­est race bikes on the grid. John­son al­most clocked a 131mph lap on the Nor­ton last year and there’s no rea­son he and Brookes can’t be aim­ing for top six fin­ishes, but as al­ways get­ting to the end of the two six-lap­pers will be key.
