Norton are pleased to announce further shipments of Commando 961 motorcycles into Japan. Following the recent re-location of the factory to Donington Hall, production volumes at Norton are increasing and export volumes are growing strongly. The Japanese shipment follows on from first exports to California last month, this saw the first new Norton bikes there for some 40 years. Australia is the next new territory for Norton, with exports anticipated to commence in coming short months following a succesful homologation process for the territory.
Now we’re all back and the dust has settled we can look back at our 2014 TT. The team had two all new SG3 bikes and a new rider in Cameron Donald, with Mick Grant and Steve Plater brought in to help with bike setup and development. After some big changes in setup during practice week we went into the first Superbike race on the back foot a little bit. We had been chasing some rear end set up issues all week, they only showed up on the incredibly demanding TT course and had not been found at all on short circuit testing.
