1971 Norton Commando Fastback

THE QUEEN OF THE BIG ENGLISH TWIN-CYLINDRE

Dream of most bikers

The Norton Commando was born in 1968.

The aesthetics are extraordinary and the performance is thrilling.

This version was soon called “Fastback”, due to the innovative straight fiberglass tail, which gives it a touch of great sportiness and modernity.

Engine, gearbox and swingarm, rigidly connected to each other by large steel plates, are bound to the frame by means of elastic rubber elements in attempt, only partially achieved, to reduce vibrations.

The classic but archaic solution of the separate gearbox adds appeal to the Commando's appearance.

The kick start does not agree to compromises and the gear lever is located on the right side of the engine (first gear up), as it was for all the european production of the period.

This requires modern motorcyclists a bit of concentration to forget the automatisms we are used to.

The pleasure of riding immediately pays off, thanks to an exceptional handling and an unmistakable voice from mufflers: a real roar!

The burning accelerations of the Fastback, combined with the poor braking power of the front drum, require the skilful use of the powerful engine braking to slow down its stroke.

The seat, which cushions the tank laterally, offers not enough space for the passenger.

For these features, only an experienced rider will be able to safely enjoy the incredible performance of this authentic queen of the legendary Brits.

The privilege of riding the Commando gives us unique sensations!

Enjoy your ride!
