Nor­ton back on the road

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

Nor­ton is mak­ing mo­tor­cy­cles again, and the proud owner of the first is Jonathan He­witt, a jew­ellery shop owner in Grimsby.

Nor­tons are a leg­end, founded in 1898, win­ning most of the Isle of Man TT races in their glory years, be­fore clos­ing in 1977.

The brand then went to the US and has been bought back into Bri­tain by Stu­art Garner, seen here hand­ing over the keys of the £16,000 Com­mando SE to Jonathan.

“I am de­lighted with my new Nor­ton mo­tor­cy­cle and it’s a real hon­our to have the first one. It’s more im­por­tant than any other bike, I will trea­sure it for­ever,” said Jonathan.

He’ll be root­ing for the mar­que’s re­turn to the TT this year, rid­den by Michael Dun­lop. T

he bikes are made at Don­ing­ton Park, with a tar­get of 1000 sales this year in Europe, North Amer­ica and Ja­pan.

The range starts at £12,500 for the Sport model.
