In 1967, in order to relaunch sales on a rapidly changed two-wheeler market, the Norton Motorcycle Company introduced its new motorcycle: the Norton Commando. The Commando adopted a parallel twin cylinder 750cc engine with two valves per cylinder.
Compared to the previous British engines, it was characterised by higher displaced and forward tilted cylinders. The use of the isolastic anti-vibration system provided an impressive increase in riding comfort.
The Norton Commando, replaced the outdated Atlas, and immediately obtained commercial success. It became very popular and well-known all over the World. In the United Kingdom it won the Motor Cycle News “Machine of the Year” award for five successive years from 1968 to 1972. It was particularly appreciated for its modern and innovative shape, especially the design of fuel tank, handlebar and back cover.
