The Norton NRV 588cc Rotary engine has been a great success for Norton throughout its years, and due to its success, Norton have now started to develop the race engine from 588cc to 700cc. Although the 588cc engine is quick and powerful, there are great expectations for the new 700cc rotary engine. As Team develop the engine and evaluate it's potential, Team will make a further announcement to inform you if the bike will be limited to our works race team or if it will be made available into a road going bike, Norton expect to know more later this year.
