Moto rumors: Zongshen will release tourist bike with motor Norton?!
Interesting rumors are without Foundation. The Chinese company Zongshen may issue a travel Enduro motor Norton. In 2019, the manufacturer has already announced the concept with the engine developed by Zongshen in collaboration with Norton.
In recent months, the manufacturer Norton Motorcycles has been in all news publications. The British firm went bankrupt and was drowning in scandals related to finances. In the end, the brand was bought by the Indian manufacturer TVS Motors. However, the arguments on this issue continue, and one of those is a touring motorcycle with a Norton engine-Zongshen.
The flagship model Zongshen 2021 is likely to be equipped with a motor developed in conjunction with Norton. In the network there are new pictures of the design. The project is moving forward and, most likely, will be brought to a logical start to the series. At the moment it is unclear what financial relationships will have a Zongshen with the new owners of Norton.
I can assume that, if successful, Zongshen Indian manufacturer TVS Motors will release its own version with the same engine. Will try to follow the news and keep everyone in the loop.
