Introducing the 2024 NortonV4CR 588…
Boasting a 588cc liquid-cooled twin-rotor Wankel engine, the Norton F1 was the road-legal version of the dominating 588cc rotary powered racing motorcycles. Taking countless wins across British road racing, the RC588, RCW588 and NRS588 were victorious across both British Superbikes and the Isle of Man TT in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
The V4CR ‘588’ also shares the same racing livery, adding gold anodised OZ Racing wheels along with the commemorative 125-year anniversary crest on the top of the seat unit.
