In what everyone will see as a very welcome return, The Norton Motorcycle Co Ltd has relocated to an all-new purpose built HQ in Solihull, West Midlands. After a troubled few years which culminated in a disastrous collapse in 2020, the opening of the new HQ and newly fitted out factory comes with a multi-million pound investment from Norton’s new parent company, TVS Motor Company.
The good news doesn’t end there as the new company’s first announcement is sure to be a massive hit.
In a marvellously generous move to those who paid deposits to the previous collapsed company, ‘new’ Norton are building a limited quantity of the Commando Classic, honouring the commitment ‘old’ Norton made to customers that had ordered and paid for a deposit on these bikes. All of them thought their deposit and any hope of their dream bike long gone when the company collapsed.
Looking forward, production of the much awaited V4SS will commence as soon as possible in 2021.
Norton Motorcycles was founded in 1898 as a manufacturer of fittings & parts. It went on to become one of the most iconic British motorcycle brands, manufacturing famous models such as the 650SS, Atlas, Commando, Dominator, Manx and Navigator.
In April 2020, Norton Motorcycles was acquired by TVS Motor Company, India’s third-largest motorcycle manufacturer. Norton will be building British bikes in England using traditional hand-crafted techniques with modern day machinery for consistently high quality.
Very welcome news indeed.
