NORTON V4 CR PROTOTYPE | Café Racer with V4 and 185 hp

 Norton starts the new season with the V4 CR prototype. Technically, the CR is based on the fully encased SV. 185 hp from 1,200 cubic meters are available.

Surprise from Norton. It was undisputed that with the new owner TVS not only fresh money, but also fresh wind will blow through the halls of the traditional British (bankrupt) brand Norton. First of all, it was necessary to repair the damage to the brand caused by the previous owner's financial mismanagement and to make the V4 safe from our own development. The next step was the new edition of the super sports car V4SV . And now the British are announcing a sleek café racer based on the superbike. So far, however, only as a prototype. "The VC4R prototype is the next step in Norton's strategic growth plan as it becomes the world's leading manufacturer of handcrafted luxury motorcycles," said Robert Hentschel, CEO of Norton Motorcycles.  Norton V4 CR prototype Technically, the CR is based on the SS, which has been known since 2017. A V4 with 1,200 cubic meters, 185 hp and 125 Nm hangs in a polished aluminum frame. These peak values ​​are at 12,500 tours and 9,000 rpm. Respect. The highlight of the V4 is the 15 liter tank under the seat. This lowers the center of gravity. Also polished and also made of aluminum: the single-sided swing arm with a five-spoke rim made of forged aluminum. The swing arm is supported by a fully adjustable TTX-GP shock absorber from Öhlins. The USD fork with NIX 30 cartridges at the front comes from the same company. Braking is done by Brembo calipers at the front and rear. Unfortunately, Norton hides the V4 behind large carbon covers, while the polished clutch cover is prominent.  Fine optics Basically, the CR is a stripped SV. But Norton gives the Café Racer its very own touch. This is determined by the close-fitting front with the small disc standing flat towards the driver, under which the steering damper protrudes boldly. With the new intake openings in the intake tract and the radiator grille, the CR looks significantly narrower than the sometimes bulky SV. Significant steps forward are the silver paint and the upholstery of the single-seater in orange. Both of these loosen up the design noticeably.  Prototype in series? Norton calls the CR itself a prototype. It was shown at the Birmingham Motor Show in early December 2021. It is not clear whether the V4 CR will be the first real new Norton model, nor has Norton said anything about a possible price.  CONCLUSION Another sign of life from Norton is the prototype V4 CR. Technically, the Café Racer is based on the super sports car SV and carries a V4 with 1,200 cubic meters and 185 hp in an aluminum frame. Series start? Unknown, as is the price.
