Norton Atlas Nomad / Ranger
New two-cylinder enduro from 2021
At the end of 2018, Norton presented the two-cylinder enduro Norton Atlas 650 in two versions. But then they didn’t come. The new Norton owner TVS is now announcing its market launch for 2021.
Ex-Norton owner Stuart Garner had for the motorcycle brand Norton great plans. The aim was to enter the volume market with the new 650 twin-cylinder – and here especially the Atlas variants. Then Norton went bankrupt under Garner’s mismanagement and the Indian motorcycle manufacturer TVS took over. Now the Indians are building on the old Garner plans and bringing the Atlas models onto the market in 2021. This is announced by TVS on the Norton website. Prospective buyers can already register.
Newly developed two-cylinder
The 650 cm³ twin, which was derived from the V4 engine, relies on a crank pin offset of 270 degrees, two overhead camshafts and a balance shaft. The bore is specified with 82 mm, the stroke with 61.5 mm and the compression with 11.5: 1. The two-cylinder is fed by injection, controlled by a ride-by-wire system. 84 hp are mentioned as output, which should only be available after 11,000 tours. The maximum torque is 64 Nm.
Ranger with long suspension travel
The two-cylinder is embedded in an environment that appears as a mixture of enduro and scrambler. The steel perimeter chassis is combined with a cast aluminum swing arm and an upside-down fork. The Atlas is offered in the versions Ranger and Nomad, which differ slightly technically.
The Ranger has a wheelbase of 1,470 mm and a dry weight of 178 kilograms. The fully adjustable 50 mm road holder fork comes with 200 mm of travel. The roadholder central spring strut, which can only be adjusted in the preload and is linked via a lever, also offers 200 mm of spring travel. The long spring travel leads to a seat height of 867 mm. When braking, the Atlas models rely on a 320 double disc system with radially attached Brembo calipers on the front wheel. A 245 mm disc with two-piston calipers supports the rear.
Wire-spoke wheels keep road contact. The 19-inch front wheel has a 120/70 tire, while a 170/60 tire is mounted on the 17-inch rear wheel rim. The 15 liter tank is molded from composite material, the fenders are made from sheet aluminum. there is also an engine protection tray and a small lamp cover.
Atlas Nomad is more street-oriented
Unlike the Ranger, the Atlas Nomad has suspension travel reduced to 150 mm, a wheelbase reduced to 1,446 mm and a seat height lowered to 824 mm. In addition, the front of the Nomad is equipped with an 18-inch wire-spoke wheel with a 110/80 tire. A 17-inch rim continues to rotate at the rear, but it has a 180/55 tire. The engine guard and the window are not used.
The Nomad competes with a smaller front wheel and reduced suspension travel.
What they both have in common is the complete LED lighting, the high tubular handlebars and the rear silencer that is raised to the side. At the presentation in 2018 the plans looked as follows: Of both models, which are available in 5 colors, 250 copies each were to be produced in a first series for 2019. Norton later planned to sell around 2,000 copies a year. The price for the Nomad was quoted at 12,000 euros, the Ranger started at 14,500 euros. Machines could be pre-ordered for a deposit of £ 500. Deliveries in England should take place from May 2019. The Euro 4 homologated models for the rest of Europe should follow from December 2019. But then came bankruptcy. With the restart in 2021, both models should have been adapted to Euro 5. There are no new prices yet..
TVS is serious about Norton. Most recently, the restart of the Superbikes V4 SS announced. Now there is a market launch date for the Atlas models. Norton fans can really hope for new motorcycles this time.
