Norton Gets Semi-Active Suspension for the Isle of Man TT Comeback
By all means, the first thing we noticed was the top-notch Öhlins FGR fork but with some extra gear: the two wires which mean electronic control over the suspension parameters. In fewer words - semi-active suspension, easy to set up on the fly and providing significantly better performance in race conditions.
Öhlins and Kawasaki are already in a partnership to develop new aftermarket semi-active suspensions and a future business and R&D relationship between the Swedish and the British guys would now be small surprise.
Norton also shows Dunlop tires shoeing BST carbon fiber wheels equipped with radial 6-piston IST calipers. And since we also see a carbon fork protector, we might expect a very brutal-looking bike for the summer IOM TT. Norton, got some more pics there?
