This is a really cool illustration of the differences in the mechanisms of 3 Norton Engines. I especially like the sweet high compression piston on the Manx. I'm not too familiar with the extent to which Norton actually used the Desmo head, but it seems they were pioneers for Ducati's later use. Of course Ducati really ran with it and beat the pants of most comers with their version!
