The Dominator and Commando 961 MK II will now be sold under Motoroyale umbrella.

At EICMA, Norton Motorcycles announced a JV with India-based Kinetic Group. MV Agusta, which is building a formidable exotic motorcycle range under its Motoroyale umbrella, is also tied up with the Kinetic Group and now, Norton motorcycles will be sold under the same umbrella as well.

Norton Motorcycles, which is UK-based, currently has four motorcycles in it’s line-up, including two variants of the Commando 961 (Sport MK II and Cafe Racer MK II), the Dominator and a full-faired superbike called the V4 RR.

The Dominator and Commando, which were shown at EICMA, will make it to India within the first quarter of 2018. The JV between Norton and the Kinetic group will venture into locally manufacturing upwards of 50 percent of the motorcycles’ components.   

If priced competitively (which will end up being the case once local assembly operations commence), Norton’s motorcycles will compete with the Triumph Thruxton R as well as the BMW R nineT.
