SUZUKI CONSOLIDATES BIKE PRODUCTION

Suzuki Motor Corporation has announced the forthcoming closure of its Japanese motorcycle assembly plant at Toyokawa. Operations at the factory will be moved to Hamamatsu, where the company makes bike engines. 

Consolidation of these activities on a single site in Japan is a response to steadily decreasing domestic powered two-wheeler production by the brand, which now makes the majority of its bikes at overseas facilities located in the markets they serve.

Suzuki’s domestic motorcycle production volume peaked in 1981 with approximately 1.6 million units. But by last year it had dropped to just 180,000 units.
