Norton commando 961 LE “588”

Not everyone can turn 125, so Norton has announced the 125 Limited Edition range.

Norton will only be building a total of 125 Limited Edition bikes (total number of all version & models in the LE range), with only ordered bikes being built. This means if only 5 of these amazing machines are ordered when the LE order bank reaches 125 then only 5 will ever exist.


Drawing inspiration from the livery of the original 588 for this bike, seen through a modern lens.

Its racing counterpart, the RCW588 swooped to success in Formula One in 1989 with Steve Spray at the helm and went on to win the Senior TT and the BSB Championship.

The 125th Anniversary bike echoes the colour scheme of the original, with blacked out engine, Yokes, suspension, and footrests and adds key modern touches like an Öhlins suspension and select carbon fibre parts such as fly screen and chain guard. Clip-ons exaggerate the racing heritage of this bike and the Commando 961. All finished off with the addition of Gold Rims. The colour coded seat cowl also is adorned with the 125th limited edition crest all limited to 125 units.

The Commando has an air-oil-cooled, pushrod, parallel twin engine with dry sump lubrication producing 76.8 bhp @7250rpm with 81Nm of torque @6300rpm and a 5-speed constant mesh type gearbox which keeps you going forwards. 

The Frame is hand TIG and MIG welded at Norton HQ and supports the 15 litre fuel tank, 43mm Öhlins upside-down forks, with adjustment for preload, compression and rebound damping and on the rear, Öhlins twin shocks with remote reservoir which are fully adjustable.

Brembo discs, callipers and master cylinders front and rear, with ABS, handle the stopping with ease.

The front wheel is a 36-spoke, 3.5" x 17" polished aluminium rim with a Dunlop Sportmax GPR-300, 120/70ZR17 and the rear wheel is a 40-spoke, 5.5" x 17" polished aluminium rim with a Dunlop Sportmax GPR-300, 180/55ZR17
