How many torque wrenches?

I've purchased a Norbar Torque wrench with range 20 to 100 NM because I know we need precision quality tool for our beloved MVs.

My question is, should I invest another one that does 0 - 20NM, or any other range?

I've attended a motorcycle maintenance workshop in Sydney and the guy said that I probably don't need it for something below 20NM, just don't over tighten nuts / bolts.

do you agree?

if I don't change my wheels often or take my bike apart, I don't need a higher range NM TW do I?

Norbar is a great brand.
My solution was to purchase two Sykes-Pickavant torque wrenches.
A 6 to 60 Nm and a 60 to 300 Nm. Those two wrenches cover everything on the bikes I have.

Sykes-Pickavant are made in the same factory as your Norbar.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Since I already have the Norbar 20-100 NM TW, is it recommended I get another one to do anything lower than 20NM and 100 - 300NM?

And, can I get away with not having one for anything below 20NM?

Have a look at your workshop manual, there's an awful lot of bolts and screws which get done up to value's below 20nm, so I would get one for sure. It all depends on how much you're willing to do on your bike.

I thought I could get away with 2, then did a few jobs this year and needed another...also have an older spare ....so 4 in total ...could really do with a smaller precision one too

2 x 8-60
1 x 40-200
1 x 60-300
