The Norton Dominator 99 was produced from 1956 to 1963. It was designed by Bert Hopwood, who had previously worked for Triumph, and was intended to compete with the popular Triumph Speed Twin. The Dominator 99 was powered by a 596cc parallel-twin engine with overhead valves and a four-speed gearbox. It had a duplex frame with telescopic front forks and a swingarm rear suspension. The bike was capable of reaching speeds of up to 100 mph (160 km/h).
The Dominator 99 was a popular model in its day and was used in motorcycle racing, including the Isle of Man TT. It also influenced the design of later Norton models, such as the Commando. Today, the Dominator 99 is a sought-after classic motorcycle, with many enthusiasts restoring and riding these iconic machines.
The model on offer here has been fully revised by us. The original engine has been replaced by one from a 650 SS, hence the non-matching numbers.
