Following the successful launch at the British Embassy in Tokyo earlier this year Norton can announce today the first 961 Commando shipment to Japan. After an absence of some 30 years Norton are back in Japan partnering PCI Limited with a multi year exclusive distribution agreement.
With many dealers already in place and a strong distribution partner, Norton are set to establish a strong presence in this exciting market.
Norton International Sales manager, Joe Adams, said “ we’ve had a great team effort to get the bikes through homologation and nicely into the territory, working closely with our distributor PCI to secure a solid long term future for Norton in Japan. Special thanks must go to Mr Aihara the CEO of PCI for working tirelessly with us and overlooking the whole process from Tokyo.”
The Norton factory have also been working flat out to open another key territory, the US. Watch this space…
Exciting times ahead for the resurgent British brand and our hand built range of bikes.
