New Norton V4SV Superbike specs

As its name suggests, the motorcycle is powered by a 1,200 cc V4 engine, while a maximum of 187 hp is available at 12,500 rpm. The torque is also impressive, with 128.5 Nm available at 9,000 rpm.

It shares with the V4SV not only the engine, but also the frame, rear fork, body and carbon fiber fuel tank. There aren’t many details, but we assume that the package will include Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension, keyless ignition, BST wheels and a 6-inch TFT instrument panel.

Cafe Racer differs in driving position, with a shorter subframe for more aggressive posture. The handles are placed lower, and the rest of the body is restyled with air vents on both sides of the new radiator.

According to Robert Hentschel, CEO of Norton, V4 Cafe Racer represents the next step in the strategic plans of the company, which wants to become a global leader when it comes to luxury handmade motorcycles.

The V4 Cafe Racer is expected to be produced in a limited number of copies.
