When Norton first announced the limited edition Norton V4 SS with a production run of only 200, interest was overwhelming. Well with the release date of 2017/18, the 200 available V4 SS models are already spoken for. Amazingly, Norton has now announced that they will build the Norton V4 RR model with a production run of only 250. Norton UK released a teaser video of this amazing machine.
The heart and soul of the bike is the newly developed V4 1200cc 72 deg engine. The engine is being completel;y designed and manufactured in house in conjunction with Ricardo. To harness the power of the engine, a fully hand-built, polished aluminum is being designed to award winning TT geometry. The suspension will be all Ohlins goodies and include a single sided swingarm in the rear. To help stop this beast, Norton is using a set of Brembo Monobloc calipers. Additionally, both models will be wrapped in full carbon fiber bodywork resulting in reduced weight. Every single V4 SS and V4 RR model, will be hand built in the Norton factory at Donnington Hall.
