Indian two-wheelers brand Kinetic Engineering has announced entering a new partnership with British motorcycle manufacturer Norton Motorcycle Company. Ajinkya Firodia Managing Director, Kinetic Engineering said that they signed a joint venture with Norton to create a new brand - Kinetic Norton Motorcycles, which will manufacture and sell motorcycles in India and rest of Asia. The new joint venture (JV) was announced at the 2017 EICMA show.

 

The first motorcycles to be introduced by Kinetic Norton Motorcycles will be the cafe racers - Norton Dominator and Norton Commando. Initially, the motorcycles will enter our shores via CBU (Completely Built Unit) route and later in future as CKD (Completely Knocked Down) units. Both the bikes were showcased at the EICMA show earlier today. Interestingly, earlier Mahindra Two-Wheelers was also working on partnering with the British motorcycle brand but there are no updates on that front right now.
