Honda hits 300 million motorcycles produced

Honda announced today that their cumulative worldwide motorcycle production reached the 300 million-unit milestone in September 2014.

The brand held a ceremony at Kumamoto Factory, Honda's primary motorcycle production plant in Japan, to commemorate this remarkable milestone.

A Gold Wing 40th Anniversary Edition produced at Kumamoto Factory became the 300millionth motorcycle that Honda has produced globally.

It's taken Honda 66 years to reach this important, since it began motorcycle production in 1949 with the Dream Type-D.

The history of Honda's motorcycle business began with the start of mass-production in Japan in 1949. Production outside of Japan began in Belgium in 1963, and since then Honda has been expanding its local production to many countries around the world based on Honda's commitment to "build products close to the customer."

With a longstanding passion to create technologies that make people's lives more convenient and fun, Honda has been developing and offering products that accommodate the diverse needs of customers in a large number of countries and regions around the world.

Having grown into a brand beloved by many customers around the world, Honda is currently producing motorcycles at 33 plants in 22 countries, sharing joys with its customers. Honda will continue offering products which fulfil the needs of its customers around the world.

Takanobu Ito, President and CEO of Honda said: "Thanks to support from our customers and all of the people involved in development, production and sales, Honda was able to reach the 300 million-unit milestone. We will continue to provide products that will please our customers in each country and region in the world."
