Norton Motorcycles, which is right now working on its all-new 650 cc Atlas Scrambler, will be launching the bike in India in 2020. This information was shared with us by Norton's Indian partner Kinetic Motoroyale's Managing Director, on the sideline of a recent event, where the company launched 7 new motorcycles. Out of these 7 new bikes, two were limited edition Norton Commando 961 and Dominator 961 motorcycles. The new Norton 650 Atlas Scrambler was revealed to us in its concept for last year at EICMA, while the production version of the bike is expected to be showcased at this year's Milan Motorcycle Shows, in November 2018.
While the official specifications are yet to be announced, the Norton 650 Atlas Scrambler will be powered by an all-new 650 cc parallel-twin engine which is expected to churn out about 70 bhp to 100 bhp, depending on the variant. The upcoming 650 cc bike will also come with an all-new, tubular steel frame by Norton-owned Spondon and it will also feature top-spec components such as Brembo's radial calipers.
It is not certain whether the bike will be assembled under Norton's partnership with Kinetic Motoroyale, however, under the JV, all Norton bikes that come as completely knocked down (CKD) kits will get assembled in India by Kinetic Group.
