What's New?

The Norton Commando 961 was unveiled internationally in two variants. The first one is the ‘Commando 961 Sport’, or 961 SP. The Commando 961 Sport is a proper modern-classic motorcycle, and offers a comfortable seating position with upright handlebars, and an optional pillion seat. On the other hand, the ‘more limited’ 'Commando 961 Cafe Racer' gets an aggressive seating position, and a set of clip-on handlebars.

The Commando 961 offers a narrow profile, thanks to its forward leaning 961-cc parallel-twin engine, and cut-out 15-litre fuel tank. The air-cooled engine gets dry-sump lubrication, and it belts out 76.8 bhp at 7,250 rpm, and a meaty 81 Nm at 6,300 rpm. On the suspension front, the motorcycle gets 43-mm Ohlins USD forks at the front, which are adjustable for preload, compression, and rebound damping. On the rear-end, the motorcycle gets a pair of fully adjustable Ohlins shocks. The stopping responsibility of the motorcycle is handled by a Brembo braking setup, and the motorcycle also gets radial mount calipers at the front, with ABS as standard.

Keeping the retro charm alive are the fully analogue - & circular - speedometer and tachometer. There's a small digital insert for a trip computer as well. Adding to that is the polished stainless-steel headlamp. The fit and finish of the Commando 961 is top-notch as expected, with the use of aerospace grade billet aluminium completing its premium feel.

The motorcycle is available in two paint shades, Matrix Black, and Manx Platinum. The Manx Platinum finish is completed by black & ruby red pinstriping, and it gets polished wheels. On the other hand, the Matrix Black shade gets gold pinstriping, and black wheels. Polished wheels are also available as an option on the Matrix Black.
