Norton Commando 961 Cafe Racer Highlights

23 April 2018: The Norton Commando 961 Cafe Racer is available in India at a price of Rs 23 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). It is a ‘made to order’ offering and hence there is only a single unit available in India. The Commando 961 Cafe Racer is inspired by classic British motorcycles featuring a round headlamp upfront, a tiny flyscreen, curved rear section and sculpted fuel tank with comforting leg recesses. For a sporty riding position, the bike gets aluminium clip-on handlebars. The flyscreen and the mudguard get carbon fibre treatment which adds to its looks. Powering the Cafe Racer is a 961cc parallel-twin motor that produces a power of 80PS at 6500rpm and a peak torque of 90Nm at 5200rpm. The Indian version is, however, less powerful with power and torque rated at 72.8PS at 7500rpm and 67Nm at 6500rpm respectively. Suspension duties at the front are handled by 43mm Ohlins USD forks adjustable for preload, rebound damping and compression. At the rear, it comes equipped with Ohlins twin shock absorbers. In terms of braking, it gets 320mm Brembo twin-discs at front and a single 220mm Brembo disc at the rear. The aluminium 17-inch spoke wheels are shod with 120/70 and 180/55 section tyres at the front and rear respectively. The only Commando 961 Cafe Racer present in India is finished in silver colour. But there are five more shades for you to select from - black, grey, red, green and white. Read more...
