Never seen one of these before but I'd definitely have one....334bhp V8 with Akras, quality running gear, quality engineering by the looks of it and wow, listen to that...

I'd have one if money were no object as a second bike to go my local cafe

If it were the same money as my Aprilia I'd have the Aprilia but the PGM would be great as a weekends occasional blast

I really like it, its a euro lottery win kind of bike and a ridiculous price but looks awesomely engineered and I actually think it looks pretty good, certainly better than the other "boutique" bikes like the Lotus, Hesketh, Brough etc.... and it's got 2 R1 engines bolted together, what's not to like

I certainly seen a lot worse but a two litre v8 is gonna empty that tank in a lot less miles then a Tuono and I am currently pissed off with range.
Does look nicely engineered but that rad wont last long with debris etc being slung at it.

Looks ok as a concept but as a practical entity ?

If I had unlimited money I might build it for fun ,but I certainly wouldn't buy one

Look up Norton Nemesis.

A bike way before it's time (at the time)

This was in 1998.

1.5 litre V8. 235bhp. Push button gear shift, magnesium swingarm and wheels etc, rim mounted disc brakes and a lot more besides. 220 mph.

3 plugs per cylinder, imagine the cost on a V8!

Such a shame it never made it to production. It very nearly did. But Norton were teetering on the brink of folding.

4 or 5 fully finished bikes were made though, I believe.



Question everything.

Doesn't have the V8 noise............bit disappointing although an amazing feat of engineering.

I don't think you can beat a CBX1000 for sound though.........


I would love one..........just out of my price range currently. 

If you want outrageous, then look at this one...............




and lastly for all you  fans of fat rubber out there..............
