The Norton M28 has come to say out with the old, in with the new as a company can’t stay alive in people’s eyes only with its creations from the past. This has long been Norton’s case until the moment Aaron Rogers decided that it must use the maker’s strong British heritage in order to power it straight into the future which is supposed to be a bright one starting now.
It all started from a pretty simple idea involving a 499cc single-cylinder engine that would be used as a stressed member of a carbon fiber chassis. And this time the “easier said then done” saying is not valid as the Norton M28 ended up being the light, compact and awesome performing machinery that its designer had previously visualized.
From where it stands now, Norton has very much chance to be back in the cards and the M28 is THE machine able to do that. We reckon it will see production in a relatively close future and, if so, it will surely come with a demanding price tag.
