SUZUKI SUPER-FACTORY ALMOST READY TO ROLL

A new Suzuki plant, consolidating all of the company’s Japanese motorcycle operations on to one site in the Miyakoda district of Hamamatsu, is nearing completion.

This 700,000 sq-ft facility spread over 40 acres will centralise engineering, R&D, engine production and bike assembly lines into one location, close to Suzuki’s corporate HQ. It is set to replace three other plants across Japan. Previously, product engineering and development took place at Ryoyo, engines were manufactured in Takatsuka and motorcycles assembled at Toyokawa, pictured.

The new Miyakoda factory will make the majority of Suzuki powered two-wheelers for developed markets, including Europe and the US. For emerging markets, Suzuki has a mixture of wholly-owned and joint-venture bike plants in India, China, Indonesia, Vietnam and Pakistan. It also builds ATVs for worldwide distribution in the US State of Georgia.
