Honda said it will temporarily halt production of motorcycles at two plants in Japan, owing to the disruption caused by an earthquake last month to a parts supplier, Nippon Seiki.

Honda’s Hamamatsu plant will suspend operations for two days, while its Kumamoto plant will be off for four days. The suspension will defer the production of about 7,800 motorcycles.

That's about twenty years worth of new Honda road bikes in NZ. :whistle:

So that makes another reason to keep my old bike. All the spare parts are already in the warehouse.

Hey Honda - stop dredging up old threads.
