Norton Commando Café Racer special edition is a lightly tweaked bike features black yokes, a gorgeous black and silver paintjob and black wheel rims.

Norton’s UK sales manager and race legend Chris Walker said: “The bike shows the kind of thing we can do for customers."Once a customer puts down a deposit, they can then go to the factory and discuss the exact finish they want on the bike – they can choose colours, wheels and several of the finishes. That way you get a unique bike.”
