Norton MotoGP Racer Imagined by Oberdan Bezzi

08/27/2010 @ 4:14 pm, by Jensen Beeler10 COMMENTS

Oberdan Bezzi has seized on the news that Norton intends to field a MotoGP bike in 2012, and came up with a drawing of what that British-born race bike could look like. The Italian designer sees Norton using a carbon-framed chassis to house its four-cylinder motor with pneumatic valves, and of course with a British rider at the helm. Obiboi sees Norton rocking the white paint-job, but we’re hoping that Norton will choose a color that stands out from the pack a bit more…British Racing Green perhaps?

    Sorry…but that is not his best effort. Not by a long shot. Clearly this is simply an amalgam of Ducati’s Desmosedici GP racer and Norton’s F750 racer from the early 70’s. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t like it.

    Why green?
    You know a Racing Norton in green?
    This JOHN PLAYER livery is simply ………the Best.

    I agree completely with Dr. Gellar.
    I love the sparse look of the Abus Norton of the late great Steve Hislop, RIP.

    Is this the NRV?

  • Ted Baxter

    this is fucking garbage. this Bezzi guy is a fucking hack and reposting his stupid chops as if they were news worthy makes this site look like a joke.

    Ted Baxter……………you have evidently taste of……….MERD@!

    As with all the fantasy cars in pictures, I don’t care about anyone’s imagination. I care about results.

    Oberdan works his ass off creating new concepts, and I appreciate it.

    Ted: I’d love to see what you guys can do. Let’s see your stuff.

    Tom: do you imagine that anyone cares what you think? Where are the “results” of your work?

    Oberdan is hustlin’. Maybe you guys don’t like this concept, but at least he’s trying and not just talking.

  • I’m just glad and flattered that Bezzi thinks enough of my 1973 JPN monocoque to recreate it now even on paper only. And I’m pleased that so many people just chat about bikes. Have a look at > >
