Norton is back in the limelight as they get ready to launch the latest 2021 Norton V4RR. This is arguably one of the most interesting superbikes in the market which have only been seen in action in road races like the Isle of Man TT.

This will be the first new model launched by Norton after being acquired by Indian motorcycle company, TVS Motor. The new 2021 Norton V4RR will make its official debut before the year ends and none of us are sure whether it’ll be a completely new machine or just an updated version.
The most obvious update that they’ll introduce is the bike’s new Euro5-compliant 1,200cc V4 engine. The current model punches out a hefty 200hp, but with an engine of that magnitude, we can expect to see some gains in that particular department.
Carbon-fibre bodywork and other goodies are expected to go through an evolution together with its race-prepped chassis. Looking at how other manufacturers tackle their latest versions of superbikes, the 2021 Norton V4RR might just get newer and better parts in the suspension and brakes department as well.
To know for sure, we’ll just have to wait for the next weeks for its official launch. Hopefully, we might also see this baby in action in next year’s Isle of Man TT races. Stay tuned for more updates.
