Over 125 years of Norton Motorcycles, and yet our story is only just beginning…
Founded by James Lansdowne Norton in 1898, Norton Motorcycles began as a British manufacturer of two-wheel trade parts. Soon after, Norton ventured into motorcycle production and achieved legendary racing successes. Dominating victories in the 1930s solidified Norton's reputation as a serious road and race bike builder.
Today Norton is on a transformative journey; we maintain our core values while embracing modern interpretations for today's and tomorrow's customers. Norton motorcycles evoke desire through artistry and craftsmanship, and our commitment to innovation drives design strategies.
From the early days to the glory years, Norton has maintained its unique position within motorcycle history. Now under new ownership since April 2020, Norton Motorcycles is proud to sit with the TVS Motor family - a partnership that breathes new life into an iconic British marque.
TVS Motor Company acquired Norton Motorcycles igniting the start of an exciting new era.
