Default Re: The new Norton

If only Triumph would save them and do the Triton thing again...not cost effective and risky I suppose, why do it when there's no customer base. Maybe some of the designers/engineers from Norton will find new lives within Triumph instead...

Doesn't look like it's a true story...

Triumph need to exorcise the ghost of Joe Lucas, aka Prince of Darkness:

Kind of worrying that they can't even keep the company in order though....you get reminders from companies house to do the annual filing etc, it's not hard....

Iím really pleased to see it was just a mistake. The bikes look quite good, if a bit expensive. The small company has had to bear huge development costs to get something to sell, and so is at a very risky point in its development. I think it would be quite healthy to see another niche manufacturer, maybe end up a bit like Morgan.
