Norton Motorcycles was on the brink of a total disaster under the former CEO, Stuart Garner, due to a pension scandal dating back to January 2020.

However, the British brand is now on the verge of a solid return under new ownership, India based motorcycle manufacturer TVS Motor Company.

With the current workforce currently expanded and a new model launch is in the works, Norton now seeks to produce 8,000 units of motorcycles thanks to a new facility in Solihull, West Midlands.

According to the new CEO, John Russel, the 75,000 sq. ft is build ready for future expansion and is a drastic improvement over the old Donington Hall facility.

“The environment people worked in was appalling, it’s rare for a country house with a call centre in the garden to turn into a motorcycle factory.

“So we had to move, and it became an emergency when the COVID arrived since the building did not comply with health rules.

“We are over 110 people now, and we have major capabilities that we did not have before. TVS has big ambitions for Norton.

“They want to make it the brand it should always have been and this can only be done by doing things right, therefore with investment,” he explained.

Norton is planning to bring the new Commando 961 as soon as possible.

While the world is slowly starting to show recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, TVS Motor Company has already hit the ground running as the India motorcycle company just reached a new milestone.

For March 2021 alone, TVS exported an impressive 100,000 units of their motorcycle.

Apart from the spectacular figure, it also proves a significant rise in personal mobility, with two-wheelers becoming the most affordable and practical choice for commuting.

Moreover, TVS has product offerings for all sorts of motorcyclists, and it all comes at a very affordable price. The quality of TVS is undeniably good as the famous BMW G 310 R, and G 310 GS are also co-developed by TVS Motor Company.

TVS exports its motorcycle to over 60 countries, including Malaysia, and in some part of the world, offering services for the BMW G 310 range.

Kerjasama di antara TVS Motor Company bersama BMW Motorrad telah menghasilkan kejayaan memberangsangkan di peringkat antarabangsa menerusi G 310 GS dan G 310 R.

Kedua-dua model tersebut mengguna pakai enjin 310cc TVS yang turut ditawarkan menerusi Apache RR310 yang telah diperkenalkan hujung 2017.

Baru-baru ini, Presiden dan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) TVS, K. N. Radhakrishnan mendedahkan mereka merancang mengembangkan varian 310cc bersama rakan kongsi BMW.

Ketika itu, rata-rata berpendapat TVS bersama BMW mungkin memperkenalkan G 310 RR, jentera sportbike berlandaskan TVS Apache RR310.

Bagaimanapun, kini timbul khabar angin model itu mungkin merujuk kepada sebuah motosikal jenis ADV touring berlandaskan G 310 GS.

Berdasarkan imej render yang dikongsikan, motosikal tersebut memaparkan penggunaan ekzos Akrapovic, penghadang angin, rim aloi, tempat duduk tinggi, fork USD dan penyerap hentakan mono.

Sekiranya diperkenalkan, dijangka model ini mampu memberi saingan sengit terhadap model ADV lain antaranya KTM 390 Adventure, BMW G 310 GS dan Versys 250X.- GaadiWaadi

Pengeluar motosikal India, TVS Motor Company mengesahkan terdapat perancangan besar melibatkan kerjasama dengan BMW.

Sebelum ini, kedua-dua pengeluar ini menghasilkan G 310 GS dan G 310 R yang dijual dibawah jenama BMW.

BMW G 310 GS merupakan motosikal jenis adventure sementara G 310 R menawarkan ciri naked.

Sementara itu, TVS menawarkan sebuah model jenis sportbike yang dinamakan Apache RR 310 dan baru-baru ini jentera tersebut telah dinaik taraf bagi mematuhi piawaian BS6 India.

Senario itu sekaligus seakan mengesahkan kenyataan Presiden TVS, K.N. Radhakrishnan yang mendedahkan terdapat model baharu yang akan dihasilkan bersama BMW merujuk kepada G 310 RR.

“Dua produk kami bersama BMW mendapat sambutan. Kami telah pun melancarkan Apache RR 310 yang menggunakan platform sama. Mungkin tahun depan, kami akan memperkenalkan varian sama daripada TVS,” jelasnya kepada MoneyControl.

Meskipun ketika ini masih tiada hitam putih namun dengan kejayaan G 310 GS dan G 310 R, tidak hairan jika kerjasama TVS dan BMW bakal merealisasikan G 310 RR yang sebelum ini diperkenalkan dalam bentuk konsep.
