Pierre Terblanche moves to Norton
Ducati’s Pierre Terblanche, designer of the beautiful Ducati Supermoto, is moving to Norton Motorcycles in the UK to design bikes. Since Norton currently produces only the 961 Commando, I think we can assume that the reborn British maker has some other models in the works. If I was guessing, I would say the Norton rotary-powered NRV588 is the prime candidate for Terblanche’s design magic.
If so, he could do a lot worse than to come up with an update of the classic John Player Special version of the Norton Commander F1.
One of the most beautiful bikes ever made.
