Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

With all this talk about the new 650 en­gine, it would be easy to for­get about the V4 that was un­veiled last year – but Garner says Nor­ton are on track to de­liver the bike to own­ers soon.

“We’re go­ing through the ho­molo­ga­tion process, and we’ve got a bike in ABS test­ing right now. A lot of the pro­duc­tion parts are ready and on the shelf for when the Euro4 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is done – it’s just a case of as­sem­bling them.

“We want to be de­liv­er­ing to­wards the end of this year, but we’re not rush­ing just to get it ready for a set date. The cus­tomers are happy that the bike will be ready when it’s ready.

“The SS mod­els all sold last July, and there’s a wait­ing list for peo­ple who want one if any­one drops out. The RR is still for sale, but we’ve sold six months’ worth. Any­one can buy an RR, but it’ll be a 12-month wait.”

It’s on its way; Nor­ton V4 will be rolled out to­wards the end of 2017
