Norton, A Brand of TVS, Announces Plans To Develop An Electric Motorcycle

Over the course of two and a half years, the Zero Emission Norton project will create R&D and manufacturing jobs in the Midlands.

Norton Motorcycles, which is owned by TVS Motor Company, recently unveiled the V4SV exotic superbike, a significant achievement given its dire situation a few years ago, and it has now announced plans to design and manufacture electrified motorcycles in the United Kingdom. The British brand is attempting to design an e-motorcycle that adheres to its design ethos.

Race-level performance, lightweight handling, and a touring range will be included. Norton will not be doing this alone, thanks to government funding, as it has enlisted the help of Delta Cosworth, a division of the world-famous engine builder, to assist with the battery and other components that propel the motorcycle.

The University of Warwick is also on board for modeling, toolchain development, and battery technology. The institution previously collaborated with Norton on the development of a TT Zero race car. The brand’s ten-year product plan includes electrification as part of its desire to help the United Kingdom achieve its goal of a net-zero automotive future.

Over the course of two and a half years, the Zero Emission Norton project will create R&D and manufacturing jobs in the Midlands. Norton wants to help the United Kingdom reclaim its position as a global leader in motorcycle technology, so it develops chassis, cooling oils, vehicle-to-home chargers, electric motors, and battery technologies in the country.

The iconic British motorcycle manufacturer has had a tumultuous history, but few can match what it has accomplished over the decades. Norton has come a long way from rolling out motorcycles to supporting WWII efforts and developing the first production superbike in the world, and it is currently working on an electric bike that will “deliver both performance and range.”
