Norton Dominator Preview
Also making its India debut next year will be the Norton Dominator. Like the Commando, the Dominator name is also taken from Norton's 1940s motorcycle with the same name. The bike is a pure bred cafe racer and is based on Norton's exclusive Domiracer. The race styled bike uses carbon fibre in abundance, be it the flyscreen, side panels and rear fairing; while the bike uses a featherbed style chassis with a Trellis-style swingarm. The power unit remains the same with the 961 cc parallel twin motor producing 79 bhp and 90 Nm of peak torque, while mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The hardware is completely shod with high quality components including Ohlins suspension, as well as Brembo brakes and pricing too will be premium at about Rs 18-20 lakh (Ex-showroom).
