Norton has been put through the wringer as of late, but it seems to be coming out okay. The company just teased the new 2021 V4RR.
The company teased an image of the new bike. The previous version of the V4RR came to the world in 2016. It did so to great fanfare but immediately showed just how flawed of a company the Stuart Garner Norton was. With TVS backing Norton now, hopefully, things will be far different.
The bike isn’t wildly different than the one that was shown in 2016. The bike will make 200 hp and 96 lb-ft of torque from a 1,200cc V4 engine. It will have a seat height of 32.9 inches.
There are likely some minor aesthetic changes to the motorcycle and some new components, but don’t expect a completely new motorcycle here.
The main difference is Norton itself. With TVS backing and a new interim CEO, Norton should be able to actually deliver motorcycles to customers now. It will be interesting to see if customers bite at this new offering. Plenty of folks were burned by Stuart Garner and his handling of the motorcycle company.
With that said, I do think TVS will be able to deliver these machines to customers. Let’s hope I’m not wrong so that Norton can get things rolling along again.
