c.1993 Norton 588cc Commander
Registration no. not registered
Frame no. 4293
Engine no. obscured
Hailed by Norton as, "the first true British challenger on the world motorcycle market in over a decade", the fully faired Commander rotary utilised Yamaha XJ900 wheels, suspension, brakes, and sundry electrical components. With 80bhp on tap, the Commander was good for a top speed in the region of 120mph while a commendably flat torque curve; smooth almost vibration-free engine; excellent handling; protective fairing; and two 25-litre integral panniers made it a tourer to rival BMW's K100. Believed one of the last made before production ceased in 1993, this Commander was bought as 'new old stock' from Norton (the inspection labels are still in place) and displays a total of only 11 miles on the odometer. Unregistered, the Commander is offered with an owner's manual, plug spanner, rear reflector, and Form V55/3. The machine's mechanical condition is not known; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to its condition, completeness, correctness, or otherwise prior to bidding.
