Norton Bikes in Canada: Paperwork's Done, Bikes on the Way
Canada will get the 961 Commando in three flavors: the limited edition SE, the SF and the Cafe-Racer, all with upside down Öhlins forks, updated radial Brembo calipers and carbon fiber trimming. While the SE is available as a solo model only, the SF and Cafe-Racer can be ordered with a dual seat.
As a special option for the Canadian market, the customers will be offered the choice of a black or chrome exhaust, and black or polished rims at no cost. The black/ polished rims option is also free for the Cafe-Racer model.
Norton will hand-build the Canadian bikes to order, and the wait time ranges between 3 and 6 months. However, some Canadian Norton fans have already made deposits as early as 2009, and it's most likely that they're going tobe the first to ride the new Nortons on Canadian soil. The first batch of 961 Commando will be delivered in April, Inside Motorcycles adds.
