    Bit of a shame for the industry to lose such an iconic brand but a much sadder loss for many employees, customers and pension holders.

    There is a lot of talk of mismanagement and dodgy dealing at the top up the company. Also embarrassing for GOV.uk who have been consistently praising the company and lending it money recently.
    Previous bikes: Tiger 800XR & CRB500R

    Administration doesn’t mean the end though - likely to be sold as a going concern.
