It is a shame that it might die but it's not the Norton anyway technically as Garner bought the brand name and started again...and clearly knows nothing about running a vehicle manufacturing company...or indeed one in general as he basically screwed many, many people over while coming out of it "ok" himself.

Basically, Garner killed the business and brand along with screwing over loads of suppliers and customers (and internal staff too).
Garner is either a crook or completely incompetent - probably a bit of both.
Saw this under 'new' and hoped it was the antivirus company
Same here. Would be nice to see Norton AntiVirus to go.
What’s wrong with Symantec?
Nothing recent, but few years back the amount of app installed because of the Norton suite, and many reinstall because of corrupted OS (98, XP).
Since then, either Kaspersky or the one from Microsoft.
Back then motorcycles:
Personally never got Norton's anyway, as a brand.
I'd never ridden one and have no idea if they are any good, but give an example of Harley Davidson, now I know they are not amazing bikes on a practical performance side, but they have style.
Norton to me, didn't seem to have either
Give ower, Norton made superb bikes, they won races and have a premium racing history. Are you saying stuff like the Norton Manx doesn't have style?
I rode a Norton Commander (the rotary one) once. Odd bike but very, very smooth.
Doesn't do it for me sorry.
Seen on twitter norton have stripped customers bikes that was in for warranty work to finish other bikes to sell . oh dear
More of an assless chaps man yourself?
If the thought of that makes you happy then sure
TVS motors (India) have bought Norton for £16 million.
That's the power of a brand, as there's **** all else of any value in it!
Unsurprisingly, the Pension Ombudsman has ordered Garner to return the £14m of pension funds that he'd appropriated, describing him as "acted dishonestly and in breach of his duty of no conflict, his duty not to profit, and his duty to act with prudence".
Odds of him actually returning it?
Probably about the same as the odds of him actually having it still!
