World Exclusive: New Norton V4 RR – in detail

Just been reading about this in MCN, brought over recently with Ross.  I would buy this without hesitation were I still living in a country with less traffic than Bangkok.  Luckily for our bank balance...

All 200 of the V4 SS bikes have been sold (at £44 000 a pop!) and the first batch of 250 RR models look to going the same way at a more modest £28 000.

Prepare to drool:
