CHENNAI: TVS Motor Company may debut Norton brand of motorcycles in India. The company bought out the iconic British motorcycle brand in April 2020.
Sources said that Norton has trademarks for four motorcycles for India — Norton Commando, Norton Atlas, Norton Manx and Norton Fastback.
A TVS Motor spokesman refused to comment. TVS acquired Norton in an all-cash deal for 16 million. Backed by the multi-million pound investment by TVS, a new Norton factory has come up. Norton has brands in segments ranging from performance bikes to cruisers and in engine displacements ranging from 600cc to 1,200 cc.
Norton has tried to crack the Indian market earlier and had tied up with Kinetic group’s Motoroyale four years ago.
