70 years after its first bike rolled off the production line in 1949, Honda has built its 400 millionth two wheeler.
At the minute, Honda’s turning out an incredible 21 million motorcycles and scooters a year – across 35 factories in 21 countries. The Japanese brand sells 5.9 million motorcycles in India and around 5.2 million in Indonesia. Every year.
And Honda’s not sitting still – it’s currently working on a range of zero-emissions electric machines, including the Honda V-Go. And it’s hoping to start selling high volumes of its affordable electric two wheelers. And it’s also developing swappable battery technology.
Speaking about the news, Honda Motor Company CEO Takahiro Hachigo said: “For 70 years, Honda has provided to customers worldwide motorcycles that make life easier and enjoyable. We will continue to do our best to provide attractive products that meet the needs and dreams of our customers worldwide.”
