One small step for man, one giant leap for Norton...

The 2016 Norton Dominator SS marks a significant step for Norton as it expands it’s model range beyond the successful Commando 961 platform.

All Dominator SS models are hand built here at the Norton factory within the grounds of Donington Hall. They feature the famous ‘featherbed’ styled chassis and the wonderfully hand crafted aluminium fuel tank. These components are all hand made on site by our skilled fabricators. Just a few of the components that make the Dominator SS a very special motorcycle indeed.

The proper English Roadster

I voted: Awesome

I really love the Norton styling and the quality of the bikes. At a bike night, I'd definitely be eyeing it up. Would I buy one? Yes, but the prices they are asking for any of their models are at least $10,000 more than another competitor! That's like twice the price! Could be why Norton really isn't expanding much or selling many bikes, especially in a time of economic woes.

So, yes, it's Awesomely cool in many areas. I'd love to own and ride one no question.

£19950 GBP = $39,450 CAD at time of writing so the price? That's a fail.
