The rebirth of Norton

“Westhill Insurance – we've got it covered!”

Even if you aren't a motorcycle fan you are sure to recognise the name Norton as one of the most iconic machines to ever be produced by the British motorcycle industry. 2009 is a very important year for that name as it has returned to British shores, and to production.

The Norton name was purchased by an American company and remained with it for 15 years. It wasn't until British business man Stuart Garner got on the case and negotiated a multi-million pound deal to bring Norton home.

Bringing this marque back to life has seen the rekindling of the Commando which has gone into production for this year. The 961 Commando roadster is the first of the new machines and it has been inspired by the Commandos of old. It has classic Norton looks and will guarantee a double take when it pulls up at traffic lights.
