British motorcycle brand Norton Motorcycle Company has disclosed vital info about their much-awaited Norton Atlas bikes. The Atlas will be offered in two variants – the Atlas Nomad and Atlas Ranger.

Whether it is the design or frame, the bikes share the same twin-tube seamless steel perimeter chassis integrated with an aluminium swingarm mount. The Norton bikes share a 650cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, parallel twin cylinder, fuel-injected motor that can churn a max power of 84 BHP and 67 Nm of peak torque.

The braking duties at the front are carried out by 320 mm twin full floating discs with radial mounted twin Brembo monoblock callipers. At the rear, it is managed by a 245 mm single disc with Brembo twin-piston calliper. Both the motorcycles come with dual-channel ABS as standard.

In India, the Norton motorcycles will be launched in 2020 to penetrate the premium motorcycle market at a premium price tag which will be offered in 5 variants.

The Atlas Nomad is built specifically for even surfaces and straight roads, hence featuring a suspension as low as 150 mm, 50 mm lower than the Atlas Ranger. The seat positioning is lower at 824 mm. The Nomad benefits in agility due to a shorter wheelbase at 1446 mm compared to the Atlas Ranger. Even the 18-inch front wheel is smaller than that of the Ranger.

The Norton Atlas Ranger scores full on the off-road looks as it boasts a front fender and a headlamp grille. Its front wheel is 19-inches, which is bigger than the Nomad. It gets a higher suspension at 200 mm at both ends and a tall saddle gives the Ranger a completely off-road look.

Both the Norton motorcycles are equipped with bulky preload, compression and rebound adjustable 50 mm diameter Roadholder USD forks at the front. At the rear is a monoshock from Roadholder with the rising-rate suspension linkage system and piggyback reservoir with adjustable preload.
