Well as you probably know, its been kinda difficult gettin holda one- even for us 'locals' ! I ordered Nov 2009 with a 10% deposit, paid the balance in full Aug 2010 and finally received the bike in Sept 2012 after approx 12 failed/promised delivery dates !! You really don't wanna know the hassles i had between those dates but i'm REALLY glad i held on and waited for the bike. The good news is,due to the wait,all the early problems have been sorted. When delivered it had the standard pipes/fuelling and ran like a bag o ****e but at the first service the noisy pipes were fitted, with the fuelling sorted to match and...WOW WHAT A DIFFERENCE !! I have a Bob Farnham (English Tuner) prepared T100 with big bore, 39's, etc with 82 horse / 62 torque and i would say the Norton is a little bit quicker (Norton quote 86 horse at rear with the pipes/fuelling) but with it being much lighter and with the ohlins/monoblocs its handles and brakes far better !
The T100 is set up as a cafe racer too but the Norton is far more 'hardcore' to ride - it definately ain't like a jap bike, more like a Laverda.
Here's my other 2 loves--

What is a boat? Hole in the water where you toss all your money.
Luckily, mine is paid for by a rich uncle.
