Motorcycles of the UK and now a part of the TVS group, has launched the
re-engineered V4SV – the ultimate British superbike. Inspired by Norton’s 100
years of racing prowess and success at the Isle of Man TT, the new V4SV will be
the only British designed and built superbike in production in the UK.
at £44,000, the Norton V4SV will be built at Norton’s recently opened
multi-million-pound factory in Solihull, Birmingham. Norton will prioritise the
deposit orders placed before TVS acquired the company in April 2020.
re-engineered V4SV is available in two colour options: Carbon and Manx Silver. The
Manx Silver option is finished in striking silver bodywork with red and carbon
pinstripes, a black front number board and red OZ Racing forged aluminium
V4SV Carbon option features exposed carbon fibre body work finish and carbon
fibre BST wheels for reduced weight and unrivalled response.
Norton V4SV colour options feature carbon fibre fuel tank and body work, a
TIG-welded aluminium tube frame handcrafted and polished to a mirror finish,
and a Union Jack on the tail of the motorcycle.
frame is aerospace graded aluminium, which was designed and developed at the
world’s most rigorous race track – the Isle of Man TT. A full quick shift and
auto blipper system, adjustable front and rear suspension, Brembo disc brakes,
a sophisticated lean-angle sensitive traction-control and three engine modes
(wet, road and sport) are all offered on this British motorcycle.

Robert Hentschel, CEO of Norton Motorcycles, said: “Two years ago, Norton
inherited the V4 - a bike imagined on the track but born for the road. A bike
that promised to blend poise, performance, and power. Over the last 18 months
we have worked tirelessly putting this machine through our new world-class facilities
in Solihull to proudly deliver on our promise to Norton owners. Thanks to TVS
investing £100 million in Norton, and us subsequently investing wisely in our
engineering processes and brand-new manufacturing base, we have ensured barely
a part hasn’t been improved on from the bike we inherited.
V4SV is unlike anything on the market today, by design, but its everything you
expect in a bike built by unapproachable Norton. Short gearing and engaging
power make this a perfect bike for the road.This is the ultimate British
superbike that will challenge and excite riders from the moment they get on the
bike to the moment they get off. It is undoubtedly a beautiful piece of art. We
are incredibly proud of what we have produced given the challenges we have
faced getting it to the start line. Importantly, this new Norton V4SV marks
just the first step on our exciting vision for the brand.”
