Solihull motorcycle manufacturer launches new generation

Solihull Editorial 2nd Nov, 2022   0

A MOTORCYCLE manufacturer has launched a new generation of its modern classic.

The Commando 961 built at the Norton Motorcycles state-of-the-art facility in Solihull, is a modern rendering of an iconic and timeless motorcycle.

The new generation Commando 961 arrives in two variants: the SP and the CR.

The two variants are priced at £16,499 and £16,999, respectively.

Dr Robert Hentschel, chief executive officer at Norton Motorcycles, said: “The Commando name is iconic and is unmistakably Norton. Our new generation Commando 961 SP and CR pay respect to timeless design whilst harnessing a modern flare. We’ve built a motorcycle that is unique and beautiful.

“We have been rigorous in our approach to ensure we are providing the very best version of the Commando 961.

“It’s been some years since the sound of a new Commando engine has echoed through UK streets and we’re delighted to be able to offer our customers this experience once again.

“To achieve the motorcycle’s artistic look demands supreme attention to detail and an uncompromising attitude towards using the very best quality material. From the sound of the engine to the feel of the tyres on the road, this new generation Commando 961 is the perfect combination of artistry, handling, attitude, and style.

“At our state-of-the-art facility in Solihull, and thanks to the £100-million investment from TVS Motor, we have hand-crafted a motorcycle that is befitting of the new Norton brand and one that marks yet another significant milestone in our journey.”

The new generation is available in two colour options: Matrix Black and Manx Platinum.
