IOM TT 2018 and this is amazing news.
John McGuinness will be racing the Norton factory bike. How cool is that?
The Ondas seemed to have a bit of a spitting problem?  :wink:

Certainly is a good looking bike.  V4 1200 with 200+ hp should do well if it's built right (no Lucas electrics). :D
Ride em if ya got em

I would love to see the bike in action.  Looks great!


With that said, All this Hype to "compete with the German (BMW S) and Japanese (Suzuki, Kawi, etc,,)"  and cost how much!?!?!?  With the current exchange rate, cost for the "cheap one" will be $41,000 USD  How does that "compete"??


And the "all new Norton engine" is an Aprilia RSV4 derived engine.  So to make a British bike fast, you must cost twice as much as use an Italian engine.

My little lady mentioned the TT she is thinking about us two getting over next year. That will be my 60th birthday year.
So I agreed that maybe that should be the time we go over.
60? Nah it's not me, it can't be... S##t !!! That sneaked up on me  :lol:

make a great present indeed, never too old only go round once and if by chance you do come back no doubt the liberals will have taken over and you will be riding an electric moped capped at 12 mph...      :boobies:

When all of us old buggers have departed the elite will have a field day with the libtards children. I think I'll just go and flake....  :lol:
