CEO Dr. Robert Hentschel said

The Norton V4CR is a raw expression of impeccable design and intoxicating performance. We’ve taken the engineering of the V4SV and stripped back the outer shell to ensure the rider gets a truly emotional motorcycling experience. 

The V4CR is the first completely new model we’ve built. Our engineering and design teams have been meticulous in their approach, from initial sketches to concept production to the final finishing touches. The bike is the culmination of all our learnings and investment over the last three years, and we’re delighted that we can now share this taste of Norton’s future.

Norton communications manager Jordan Gibbons said

TVS has invested £74m in the past three years and is committed to Norton’s future. Along with the V4CR, which we’re super excited to launch here at The Bike Shed Show, we’re working on new models, not all of which will be powered by an internal combustion engine, with the following model arriving at the end of 2024,

Along with new model development, we’re currently focused on growing our UK dealer network from eight dealers. But we know trust is critical, so we offer a test ride at home service, removing the barrier to experiencing Norton if they don’t have a dealer close to them right now.


Overall, the Norton V4CR is a fantastic motorcycle and will please even the most demanding riders. However, it is essential to remember that a high-performance machine is not meant for everyone. 

If you are looking for a motorcycle built for speed and excitement, the Norton V4CR is an excellent option. But if you want a more practical, comfortable, and easy-to-ride bike, look elsewhere.

The V4CR is limited to 200 units, so it will surely be a sought-after collector’s item.
