Think i posted about this last year. Sorry if double post. Gorgeous bike and V4 but $30K?? Meh. Not a good way/place to start for Norton if you ask me. Think ill go watch the Honeymooners instead. This bike looks great to me though. Thoughts?

I think it looks good apart from the headlights. Performance wise it's gonna need a lot to perform up to the Panigale which has been in development for a few years now. That said, they need to set their sights higher still- The 10R head to head given equal riders still beats all comers in WSBK and most other places as well. Reliability is also an issue with Norton and always has been. They say the best Ducati riders were the mechanics- well Norton is at a whole another level there. To top it all off with $30 large for the privilege... No thanks :headshake:

Doesn't look as good as the Ducati's, costs more, and doesn't provide the "image" a Ducati does.

They are going to need to change up something.
