Incoming Norton V4SV hailed as one of the most luxurious superbikes ever created

Norton TFT Dash V4SV superbike

Legendary British motorcycle marque Norton has re-engineered one of its classic rides. The V4SV comes with lofty claims to be one of the most luxurious superbikes ever created; we’ve not sat in the seat but, in the looks department it is certainly a bike which has our attention in a category we’d usually avoid.

The V4sV features a keyless ignition, and TFT screen dash, coupled with a rear facing camera.

The Norton V4SV will ship in two colour schemes, Manx silver with red and black trim and red Oz aluminium wheels, or Carbon finish and carbon-fibre BST wheels.
