Norton is a global premium British motorcycle manufacturer with a one hundred year history and a racing pedigree. Manufacturing is based at the new UK headquarters at Hastings House next to Donnington park race circuit in the East Midlands. Over 90% of the revival bikes are sourced and manufactured in Britain, making it a truly British bike. Norton predominantly operates in the engineering manufacturing sector; however it does work in other market sectors like any modern global brand should. Norton now exports to Japan, Canada, USA and Europe with an established dealer network. Growth and sales success have allowed for Norton to develop whilst still staying true to its racing roots finishing 18th in the Isle of Man TT last year and even greater hopes with a top rider for 2014. This year is lining up to be the best yet for the Norton team.
