Norton’s new service aims to make it a doddle to test ride the new Commandos. Here’s how:
The resurgent British firm has just announced a cool new service which offers the chance to get a brand-new £16,499 Commando 961 Sport or £16,999 Commando Café Racer straight to your door for a test ride.

Since being taken over by Indian automotive giant TVS, things are on the up at Norton Motorcycles. The bikes are being built, the bosses are making the right noises, and early reviews have been good. But there’s still a bit of an issue with the number of dealerships where you can actually go and check out a new Norton in the flesh. That’s why the firm has devised a clever idea to make it easy for potential punters to swing their leg over one of the new Commandos.
Okay, so it’s only good if you’re living on the UK mainland, and you will have to pay a 10% holding deposit for the privilege (in addition to a fuel charge based on your distance from Norton’s Birmingham HQ), but you will get to test ride one of the new machines in your own backyard. And if you decide the bike’s not for you, you will get your holding deposit no questions asked.
Initial response has been extremely positive, so you’ll likely have to wait a few weeks to get one delivered, but credit to Norton for finding a novel way to get bums on seats and drum up a bit of interest for its new machines while it’s still finalising the dealer network.
