Under new leadership from Indian giant TVS, British motorcycle brand Norton Motorcycles looks to the future with confidence.
However, the company is expected to be haunted by the ghosts of the past, especially from the period when the company was managed by the wrongful Stuart Garner (at this stage the brand appeared under the legal name NMUL Realizations Limited).
And Norton's reputation has been tarnished quite well, judging by the recent scandal with the previous V4 SS model, produced and sold under Garner.
The fact is that multiple shortcomings were found in it, which made up a huge list of 35 positions, 20 of which are critical, and the rest are worthy of a separate recall campaign.
The information was discovered and released by NMUL's appointed liquidators, but unfortunately the new owner was not required to take responsibility for motorcycles sold by NMUL.
It was NMUL that had to answer financially to the buyers, and those who bought defective motorcycles had to declare their right to a refund as part of the liquidation procedure for this enterprise.
However, the new owner of Norton promised any assistance in troubleshooting and fixing them - but not at his own expense.
Of course, buyers of the V4 SS were not happy with this story, in particular - that the new Norton was not going to bear the burden of responsibility for the shortcomings of the old motorcycles.
In response, Norton published a recommendation to take these bikes out of service and even disconnect the battery - one of the problems identified was related to it.
Then, at the end of June 2021, the new CEO of Norton, Robert Hentschel, announced that, contrary to the promises of the interim director to assist in troubleshooting and repair, Norton finds it impossible to repair these motorcycles due to the inability to establish a stable supply of proper quality parts.
In fact, the new Nortons have signed that these bikes left the factory broken and beyond repair.
However, Norton also has good news for V4 SS motorcycle owners: a second iteration of this model is being prepared, which is not a direct update of the first version, and those who bought the first, defective, model will be entitled to purchase the second, serviceable and high-quality, at a special price.
However, all liability for defective V4 SS version 1 will still remain with NMUL, and their owners remain fully entitled to compensation.
