MCN tester has rid­den them all

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week - ADAM CHILD, SE­NIOR ROAD TESTER

“I was lucky enough to ride the Nor­ton SG1 in 2012, and have shared the team’s roller­coaster ride – test­ing ev­ery model along the way. At first I thought Stuart Gar­ner and Nor­ton were mad to de­sign and build a bike from scratch to take on the TT. There’s noth­ing harder.

“With more prac­tice laps, the Nor­ton could have been push­ing for a podium. What’s more, re­duce the size of the fuel tank, re­duce the wheel­base and tweak the sus­pen­sion and it could even win in BSB or WSB – it’s that good. And the SG6 gives us an in­di­ca­tion of what to ex­pect from the road bike.”
