I love the look of the F150 If I came to live in America I would be a Redneck with a Ram or an F150, with a gun rack in the back window I must be understanding the article in MCN wrong then. Norton thinking big A little while back Norton struck a deal with Zongshen to licence their new 650cc engine platform, which also enabled Zongshen to distribute the bikes in China. As part of the deal Zongshen would be producing new bikes using the Norton engine, but nothing would be branded Norton. Now Norton have set their international sights even further by signing a joint venture agreement with Motoroyale, the motorcycle arm of Indian business group Kinetic. Unlike the deal with Zongshen, the new joint venture will build the current range of Nortons and any future models in at Kinetic’s plant in Ahmednagar, India. These models will then be sold in India and all over Asia by 2018, although bikes destined for other markets will still be built in the UK. Kinetic have been producing motorcycles in India since 1972 and current import MV Agusta and SWM to the region.
