Highlights

  • Both the Norton Atlas scramblers share the same 650 cc engine
  • Common parallel-twin engine, same chassis and cycle parts
  • Norton Atlas 650 Ranger & Nomad confirmed for 2021

British motorcycle brand Norton Motorcycles, which is now owned by TVS Motor Company, has invited expressions of interest from prospective customers for the Norton Atlas range of scramblers. The Norton Atlas Nomad and the Norton Atlas Ranger, are built around a 650 cc parallel-twin engine, and will go into production in 2021. The two Norton Atlas scramblers were first revealed in 2018, and were supposed to be available commercially from 2019, but Norton's financial problems and subsequent troubles seem to have put a spanner in the works. With new ownership and a new CEO John Russell at the helm, the company seems to have decided to go ahead with full production of the Atlas range.
