Robert Maxwell and his specially adapted Norton Commando 961 SE paid a visit to our Donington Park factory for its’ 12 month service after covering 1,400 miles. Robert’s motorcycle has been adapted by Norton with help from ProShift to allow control of the throttle, clutch and brake from the left handlebar via a series of press controls and specially modified levers.
The 8th round of the Stars at Darley is on Sunday 2nd October, 2011 and is held at the Darley Moor Circuit near Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Norton have been invited to parade the NRV588 Rotary (CEO, Stuart Garner currently holds the World Land Speed record on this motorcycle) and we will also take along a Cafe Racer, The Panther.
It’s always a great show to attend and Nortons’ Production Manager, Ian Morgan will attend to showcase the motorcycles. Hope to see you there.
As part of the plans for expansion, Norton took delivery of 3 new CNC machines this week. With these new 3 and 4 axis machines, we will now be able to machine even more parts in-house further helping volumes expand and getting bikes out to meet popular demand.
