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.
Imagined originally as a TT ride where Norton is one of the most successful manufacturers, this bike is built for the road, and needs plenty of it to realise its full potential. Engineered to self-imposed off-the-scale standards over at Norton, this 1200cc V4 ride produces 185bhp (down from 200bhp on the V4SS it replaces).
Slim and elegant in stature but so utterly solid, almost bull-like in appearance, holding the road, for what Norton promises is the ride of your life.

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.
