The revived Norton marque has been busy in recent months, and their latest project takes the brand in an interesting new direction.
Now, Norton is working on a street tracker/scrambler powered by a 650 cc parallel twin. But wait, you say—wasn’t this 650 twin project supposed to be a sport bike? Supposedly, Norton plans to supercharge this motor and build a sportbike around it in the future.
Norton is reportedly planning a couple permutations of this scrambleresque platform, one with an 18-inch front wheel (a street tracker?) and one with a 19-inch (a scrambler?). We’ll see the sportbike after those make it to market … maybe. It takes Norton a long, long time to get anything to market, and this will surely be no different.
