    Jesus, there's little enough bike chat on here as it is, how much is there to say about Chinese mopeds and 20 year old superbikes?

    Doubt it, difficult to get two-smokes through Euro4/5 emissions innit... although I think 'Prila make a Direct Injection motor for mopeds, wonder if that passes?

    Apparently there is a 200cc twin cylinder version of the new Dragster (engine is the same as an Aprillia) - I'm tempted

    £4K in the Phillipines

    £12k

    You could buy a Ducati Scambler and then £4k worth of bolt on tat for that money.

    (Side stand stones are an optional extra)
    How much are the stones, and are they finished to the same standard as the bike?

    Having said that, the bsa of dubious future (it hurted my foot yesterday) could do with a side stand hole as it is almost vertical on the (incorrect) side stand.

    Hmmm......

    Much as I love bikes and would love more British manufacturing, and would like to see Norton succeed and grow, I won't be investing.

    Norton motorcycles announce ‘Design & Licence’ agreement with Zongshen manufacturing of Chongqing, China.
    July 27 2017
    Hmm... Note the date...

    Norton and Zongshen have entered into a 20 year Design and Licence agreement over an all new 650cc twin engine. The 650cc twin engine jointly engineered and developed by Norton and Ricardo has been specifically designed to the requirements of Zongshen
    Two years to wrap a frame around something already designed?

    ...and will be Euro 4 compliant.
    Err... From January 1 2020, tough Euro 5 limits will apply to new motorcycles and mopeds.

    Maybe that's why they've only built the one
