Founded in 1898 by james Lansdowne Norton in Birmingham, Norton Motorcycles is among the most popular British motorcycle brands of all time, along with the likes of Triumph, BSA and now Royal Enfield, which is now entirely under Indian ownership. In recent decades, Norton changed ownership several times, until British businessman Stuart Garner bought the brand from American ownership in 2008. Garner relaunched the Norton brand with the 961 cc engine platform with two models - names revived from Norton's past, the Dominator and the Commando. In January 2020, Norton went into administration. Now, hopefully, Norton will get a fresh lease of life with capital and fresh funding from TVS.
