Norton probably sold the rights to the engine 961 before the bankruptcy
The story of the bankruptcy of Norton Motorcycles continues. POPs up many interesting facts. First, a big scandal with pensions, which is now investigating the pension regulator in the UK. Secondly, there is the story about the alleged sale of new Norton motorcycles, their opinion and disassembly of parts at the factory. We, of course, don’t forget the story of how the British government drove a ton of taxpayers money into a bottomless pit. And this is only the beginning…
20 March, it was reported that Stuart garner made a deal with Jinlang Science and Technology Co., Ltd. He, in fact, sold all rights and patents to the engine of the Norton 961 and equipment. The website motorfans.com.cn published photos, as WO Huakong and Stuart shake hands. On some photos shown the documents, and an image of the motor on one of the monitors.
Jinlang is an experienced manufacturer of scooters and motorcycles, which sells moleculator motorcycles under the brand Ariic and Jinlang. The Chinese are supplying components to other companies including Zongshen, and also produce engines for some Polaris ATVs.
The whole story is very bad. The impression that Stuart garner was not interested in the development and restoration of the greatness of Norton. He just rearranged the capital, were engaged in fraud and all that. Let’s see how this will end. What is true and what is not?!
