a complete list of norton motorcycle model

Updated on August 25, 2011

A 113 years of history

Norton motorcycle was always on my wishlist since I was a kid, the first Norton bike I saw was the WD big four and I felt in love afterwards.

Norton was founded in 1898 Birmingham, England. Not as a motorcycle manufacturer but as manufacturer for fittings and parts for the two-wheel trade. around 1902, they had begun manufacturing motorcycles with bought-in engines. In 1908, a Norton-built engine was added to the list. And after that they have a long series of production of single and eventually twin-cylinder motorcycles. the company went bankrupt when major of the shareholders started to leave Norton in 1953. In late 2008, Stuart Garner, bought the rights to Norton and relaunched Norton in its Midlands home at Donington Park where it will develop the NRV588 racer, a machine styled after the Norton Commando, and a new range of Norton motorcycles, with options including 1200 cc Superbike, and 750 cc Supersport variants.
