The Marvelous Norton V4 RR Is Out on the Prowl
The ravishing motorcycle in front of you is called Norton V4 RR and it’s the latest outrageous project to roll out from the Donington Hall factory – an all-new bike that proved to be quite the challenge for the Norton Motorcycle Company. But let’s face it, the end result is so seductive and eye catching that I’m sure it was all worth it.
Packing some serious equipment and showing off those wild looks, this bike is bound to impress everyone who gets even a glimpse of it. This compact superbike features a new 1200cc engine, that was built in-house – it’s true it’s based on the Aprilia V4 powerplant, but it was seriously modified and upgraded to be 20% bigger in capacity, with a bigger V-angle, and it still has the same size.
Set to deliver around 205 hp, this astonishing bike blends in proper engineering with state of the art technologies, and a breathtaking clean-sheet design, to allow riders to experience the ultimate thrills. There’s even a special race system on this bike, that will add an extra 10 bp, while the road-going version will feature a twin underseat exhaust and will be Euro4 compliant.
Showing off a 179 kg dry weight, carbon fiber bodywork, fuel tank, and wheels – on the SS version, as well as a 7″ HD dash with a rear-view camera, this motorcycle is setting the bar really high. But adrenaline junkies will have to pay £44,000 for the Norton V4 SS, while the V4 RR version costs £28,000.
