The 16 H engine with dimensions of 79×100 mm had a remarkable production run of no less than 45 years.
Keywords with this design are reliability, robustness and power. Compression ratio is a modest 4.9 :1 and the engine delivers some 12.5 hp.
Front and rear 7-inch brakes are fitted, which have ample power to stop the Norton’s 165kg weight.
Every year a number of improvements were made of which some were technical and others were meant to enhance the machine’s good looks.
