The Commando, a fast and refined version of Norton’s parallel twin, was introduced in the late 1960s. Early models were of 750cc capacity and were good for 120mph. 1973 saw an improved 828cc version with rubber-mounted engine to combat vibration. Aimed at the US market and intended to take on the Japanese competition, the 1975-launched Mk3 had an electric starter and discs brakes front and rear. By 1977, however, the NVT Wolverhampton factory was in Official Receiver hands and Commando production finally ended.
