Recently our International Head of Sales, Joe Adams spent time travelling throughout Europe visiting the Norton dealers. Joe spent time at Norton Italia with Davide Rebeccani and Guiseppina Meazza who run and own Norton Italia. Joe delivered a brand new 961 Commando Sport Dual Seat model and Davide was able to take the bike out the following day for a 250 mile ride into the Italian mountains. He couldn’t believe how well the bike handled whether by himself or two up with Guiseppina. The new Commando created a real stir wherever he stopped, his fellow Italian bikers all wanted to know more..
Today see’s the first shipment of our dual seat Commando 961 bikes into our exclusive distributor Norton France, based in central Paris. As production volumes continue to increase we have reached another important point with the dual seat model now in full production and delivery across Europe. Great thanks to all the hard working Norton team and special thanks to our European dealer network for all their hard work in bringing Norton back into the showrooms..
Did you know Norton hand build all their engines in house!? The answer is Yes, we certainly do. Here’s a picture from engine build this morning..
Norton are truly British at Heart..
What a beauty…. Norton France has put together this gorgeous Norton Commando 961 SF as a special one off for it’s Classic Paris show this week. Thierry Stapts the owner of Paradise Motorcycles and boss of Norton France [details on dealer section of our website] put the bike together to show how you can make the 961 SF exclusively yours by special paint and other one off finishing touches. This exclusive approach is encouraged by the Norton factory and we wish Thierry and his team well at the show this week..
