I haven't been on the forum for a while & i am just wondering if Norton has been bought out by the Indian company I originally was told about or has it all gone by the wayside ?

No, TVS are the new owners and have a new 'Factory' in Solihull, however its seems to be a ghost factory so far with little productive activity.

I ask because I wandered into a dealer here in Australia yesterday & the guy told me that Norton is finished as a brand & it is not being taken over by TVS...I didn't know what to make of it ?

Well if you look in the picture thread you will see the first of a run of 40 961 'classic' bikes produced in the new factory. To paraphrase the saying 'Reports of their death have been greatly exaggerated'
