Norton Teases Future 650cc Street Bike | 247MT



Norton is getting closer to releasing its next motorcycle, this one being a 650cc twin-cylinder street bike. As you can see above in the photo, courtesy of our friends at MotoFire, the Norton 650 will take a roadster form, with a positively vintage vibe. The bike will serve as a platform though, for several 650cc motorcycles, one of which will be the basis for an Isle of Man TT race bike. Said to make around 100hp, the Norton 650 would be a potent weapon in the Lightweight TT race class. It would also serve as a good counterpoint to Norton’s 1200cc superbike project.Though today we also see drawings of the machine (MotoFire has a couple more concepts that you should check out), we were expecting to see this model in the flesh in the fall…of last year. First teased back in August 2015, it is hard to say why the Norton 650 project is so far behind schedule, but the same was true for the British marque’s superbike project, so we’re not sure why we expected differently. An attractive machine though, we hope that Norton Motorcycles can get it to market before the vintage look has faded from the motorcycle industry. .

Triumph Bobber Motorcycle Ride Review



Triumph Bobber Motorcycle Ride Review.

First feelings prove positive. Even with the fully-adjustable seat back in it’s farthest notch, the riding position isn’t as ‘foot forward’ as you may expect from a machine leaning so heavily into a cruiser-ish vibe. There’s none of that foot-fumble that so often arrives when first straddling a cruiser and the bars feel natural and well-placed. A quick moment to get familiar with the controls (yep, everything is where it should be) and then it’s a slight reach down, underneath the fake carbs that actually house the fuel injectors, a turn of the key and we’re ready to go.

The engine note – channeling the exhaust down through the twin, slashed tips of the steel pipes – is throaty enough to be pleasant without being anywhere near obnoxiously too loud to annoy the neighbours. But what really hits home is how comfortable and inviting the Bobber engine feels at tickover. Often a bike in the bobber mould can feel intimidating on first sight; not necessarily in a bad way, but sometimes there’s an ‘exciting kind of scary’ that arrives with the first burble of a machine. This nervous anxiousness isn’t present here. There’s no momentary pause as I compose myself for the first twist of the throttle, the Bonneville Bobber already feels like home.
