2015 Norton Commando 961 MKII Cafe Racer w/solo seat. Located near Boulder, CO.
The Commando 961 Cafe Racer was built to replicate the old style cafe racers with all modern components and engineering while maintaining a classic appearance and style. Features include: Clip on style handlebars, Upside down Ohlins forks, Remote Brembo master cylinders, Polished wheel rims, Carbon fiber flyscreen and 5 speed transmission.
This is one of the “new” Nortons since resurrecting the brand in 2013. Hand-built in England, only 200 were made in 2015, and only 50 were imported into the U.S. It is most likely the only one you will see in the state of Colorado. And, boy is she a head-turner. Garaged & covered her whole life, and in pristine condition. Comes with service manual (on USB) and all original documents. With only 802 miles (I took a short ride since last photo, and it’s running great!)
