2023 Norton V4SV fetches GBP 44,000 (Rs. 41.61 lakhs) price tag, gets lots of carbon fiber parts
TVS-owned British manufacturer Norton Motorcycles has launched the 2023 V4SV superbike for a price of GBP 44,000 (Rs. 41.61 lakhs) for the UK market.
According to Norton, the superbike has been redesigned this time and remains the only British designed and built superbike in production in the UK. The company said it would prioritize deposit orders placed before the company was acquired by TVS in April 2020.
The marque, which boasts 100 years of Isle of Man TT racing prowess and success, will manufacture the V4SV at its recently opened factory in Solihull, Birmingham. There will be 2 colors offered – Carbon and Manx Silver.
The Manx Silver option is finished in a striking silver body with red and carbon stripes, a black front panel and red OZ Racing forged aluminum wheels. The Carbon option gets exposed carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber BST wheels for reduced weight.
However, both colors feature a carbon fiber fuel tank and body, a handcrafted TIG-welded aluminum tube frame polished to a mirror finish, and a Union Jack on the tail of the bike.
The superbike is powered by a liquid-cooled 72-degree 1200cc V4 engine that develops 185hp at 12,500rpm and 125Nm at 9,000rpm. The frame is aerospace-grade aluminum refined at the Isle of Man TT.
A comprehensive quick-shift and automatic blipper system, adjustable front and rear suspension, Brembo disc brakes, sophisticated lean-angle sensitive traction control and 3 engine modes (wet, road and sport) are offered on this British motorcycle.
As standard, the Norton V4SV is equipped with LED lighting for low beam, high beam, turn signals and taillight, as well as a keyless ignition system.
Additionally, the superbike features a 6-inch color TFT display that includes rear-view camera functionality and a 15-liter carbon fiber fuel tank under the seat with Kevlar reinforcement.
