From film to reality? Just kidding, but a friend pointed out to me a resemblance and I had to agree.

THE IMAGE I THINK NORTON SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR..?
HAVING MADE OVER Norton's concept V4CR I COULDN'T HELP BUT FEEL THE V4SV NEXT TO IT NEEDING A BOOST IN THE SAME VAIN TO, THIS IS HOW THE NOW BRIGHTER RED V4SV ("WARRIOR" as I named it) LOOKS AFTER MY MAKE OVER.

Norton V4CR Makeover

Birmingham NEC bike show 2021, one bike I wanted to see was the new Norton V4CR concept, the V4CR is a striped back V4 SS/RR model but it had promise. I felt it needed more "WOW" factor and took the trouble to ask fans at the show. With this and online feedback I produced the following.

First: I took Norton's chosen colours but produced more impact, I changed the intakes shape, panel shapes, seat, adding pillion facility, made the handle bars a more comfortable height, replaced carbon panels for painted, redid the tank logo to be seen, added an in keeping nose fairing, harmonised the front mudguard and other minor tweaks.
I then produced a few alternative coloured versions to add to my MkII correction.

The last update was the paint, a little more but in keeping an image of the bike a painted blue and deeper grey rippled flag effect version...and someone asked me to do an over the top American paint version. I tried to keep it as tame as possible.

Any thoughts?
