‘norton look like they’re here to stay’

Norton may not have done everything right since they were brought back to life in 2008, but they have done a lot of things right.There have been some eager to see them fail and happy to put the knife in at every opportunity, but that has not dampened the spirit of Stuart Garner and his growing workforce.Now producing a range of bikes and with a strong presence at this year’s TT with a genuine chance of a podium (see page 6), it looks like the revitalised British company might be here to stay.When an admin error sparked a warning from Companies House, the haters could not wait to pile in and trumpet imminent failure.Only that was not the case and within hours the record had been put straight.

great escape tr6 stars again

Once of the most famous motorcycle film scenes ever committed to celluloid will be relived this March 24 on the 75th anniversary of the events that inspired the 1963 war epic The Great Escape.A special gala evening, hosted by historian Dan Snow, will commemorate the men who were the real-life inspiration for the film, as well as showing the movie in full.

Team GB freestyle BMX ace, Declan Brooks has come to the realisation that two wheels are better when there’s an engine between them and you don’t have to pedal. The Olympic hopeful nailed his full licence last week with Shires Motorcycle Training, allowing him to ditch the L-plates he’s been stuck with since doing his CBT last year. Brooks has now got himself a Suzuki SV650. Such a shame Suzuki don’t still make the Bandit.…

stripped-back gold wing

Just a year after unveiling an all-new, radically-revamped Gold Wing and buoyed by public demand, Honda are now to bring in a second variant... for over £5000 less!With only the high-specification Gold Wing Tour and Tour DTC versions available until now, both equipped with large top-boxes and heftier price tags to boot, you’ll now also be able to get a more svelte, minimalist and arguably cooler-looking Wing, which replaces the old F6B, and saves a bundle of dosh into the bargain; what’s not to love? Lack of top box and lower screen... ...help give a much lighter look Essentially, the new standard Gold Wing is, like the old F6B, the familiar full-dresser but without rear top box/back-rest (plus built-in speakers) for a more slimmed-down, blacked-out, ‘bagger’ look. There’s…
