Two new Cafe Racers; the Dominator and Commando from Norton motorcycles will land soon in India and rest of Asia
MotoRoyale; a Kinetic Engineering initiative to bring high-end superbikes has signed an alliance to bring British motorcycle brand Norton motorcycles to India and rest of Asia. The Norton motorcycles in this joint venture will launch their two models Norton Dominator and Norton Commando as a start and the motorcycles will reach the Indian shores via CBU (completely built unit) route. The company also has plans to bring the motorcycles via CKD (completely knocked down) units in the future also.
"We are now taking the next big step forward and delighted to form this alliance with the Kinetic group. I believe that the style, passion and beauty of Norton products coupled with the experience of Kinetic will make a winning combination and deliver a fabulous range of Norton motorcycles across the ASEAN territories," said Stuart Garner, Owner and CEO of Norton Motorcycles.
The Norton Dominator and the Norton Commando are both powered by a 961cc air/oil-cooled parallel twin engine and produce a maximum power of 79 bhp and 90 Nm of peak torque. Both the motorcycles are true cafe racers with the Commando priced more affordable than the most expensive Dominator.
