Nice but a bit expensive.
Less than 200kg
More than 200bhp
A good bike as rider said

The Norton Rotary Engine is certainly the best motorcycle engine sound in history.... barring the 2 strokes GP500cc engine of course.  ;D 8)

It may be an amazing bike to ride and I think it's great that Norton are finally making a modern bike again. But i really don't like the styling. Everything shiney and chrome isn't a good look for a superbike

Nick, you will get over it really fast with this noise!! ::)


I will wait until at my THX system to listen to that later before I judge lol.

But As Hawk said, I used to watch the Norton Rotarys and loved hearing them arriving like a plane usually accompanied by a foot long flame on the overrun.

I would settle for an old Norton Commando if anyone has one?

Sounds like a pissed off 2 stroke. I wish they fix the few odd things with the rotary. That would be a perfect engine for any sport bikes. Small and pack a punch!

Haha! Yeah sort of, but distinctly a rotatory engine noise unique to the Norton I think. But that's probably why I like it so much.... It's just a beautiful engine noise for a motorbike. ;D

Woah! Sound mod coming ASAP!

Edit: Dyno videos are of abysmal quality. Even by Youtube standards. Seems I'll have to pull off some miracles, lol. I got bored of sound modding, and didn't think I'd bother again. But perhaps this one can rekindle the flames...

DONE! --> http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=4071.new#new

Won't rev as high, because I prefer it to be distinct, seeing as how I made this for the Varese in the stead of a non-existent WizNorton bike mod. Maybe when a WizNorton bike mod actually arrives, I'll make the necessary adjustments. I probably won't be active, but, never say never...


Oh, and turns out, I've not changed my mind at all. Making sound mods just doesn't excite me anymore. Oh well, at least I've learned something, haha.

Enjoy  ;)!


Cheers.
