Norton returns, the name synonymous with the British sport motorcycling culture, and a brand that added so many enduring names to the motorcycle lexicon ─ Commando, Dominator, and of course Norton Manx whose fame was gained while dominating world Gran Prix road racing for decades. When the first Norton motorcycle, the ‘Engerette’, rolled out of the original Birmingham England factory in 1902, it was the birth of a lineage of motorcycles that shapes the motorcycle scene to this day. It is fitting that the new factory and world headquarters of Norton are based at the spiritual centre of British motorsport, the famous Donington Park Grand Prix Circuit, so near the traditional heart of the British motorcycle industry in Birmingham. We embrace the passion and pride of Norton’s heritage, with our eyes firmly fixed on the future. We proudly continue the legacy and assume the mission of designing, engineering and building motorcycles that reflect the best of this iconic brand.
