Honda Ends US Motorcycle Production
For the first time in 30 years, Honda motorcycles are no longer produced in the United States. The Marysville, Ohio plant opened by Honda in 1979 has shut its doors. All Honda motorcycles for the US market will now be imported from Japan. Honda blames the closure on the global economic recession, and the tighter credit environment which has stifled demand for cars and motorcycles.
