New Norton patents filing, or a future owned by TVS / MotoNews / BikePost
For Norton Motorcycle, a new chapter begins in its history. The British brand has applied for a series of trademarks that hint at a bright future under the management of TVS Motors. The application was filed with the European office and is the first since the purchase of Norton Motorcycle by the Indian company TVS Motors for £ 16 million. Norton Electra, Norton Fastback, Norton Navigator, Norton Nomad, Norton Ranger and Combat were registered.
The British manufacturer already used the names Electra, Fastback, Navigator, Nomad and Ranger in the 1960s and 1970s. The Navigator was a 349cc two-cylinder motorcycle that was produced in 1960-1965. Electra was equipped with the same engine, bored to 383 cm3, and was produced in 1963 (Harley-Davidson Electra Glide appeared in 1965, the British were the first with the name). The Fastback brand was applied to the Norton Commando 750 in the 1970s. In 1972 Commando received a new engine called Combat.
Norton built the P11A Ranger from 1967 to 1969, while the Nomad pre-built the Nomad in the 1950s.
All trademarks indicate the scope of its application. Norton chose vehicles, motorcycles, mopeds, scooters and everything related to it. We are waiting for spy photos, concepts.
