Does that mean that Mahindra might actually do something positive about it this time around

I do wish they'd leave these old marques alone instead of trying to trade on their history. It's bad enough seeing the 125cc Chinese Landfill bikes with once respected names on their tanks buzzing around  :-\
A mate of mine has just called round with his brand new Norton - it's trying to look the part if you like that sort of thing - but talk about mechanical noise  :o If any of my old bikes sounded like that I'd be stripping them down straight away to see what had failed. He even admitted to being embarrassed by it after he'd heard the 65 year old A10. I got the distinct feeling that he won't be keeping it long.
