Honda's Goldwing-building factory to cease motorcycle production

Published: 28 February 2008

Honda has announced that all motorcycle production in its Marysville plant is to be moved to Japan, marking the end of almost thirty years of Goldwing production in the plant.

Opened in 1979, the Ohio factory currently builds 120 Goldwing and VTX models every day, but production of the motorcycles is due to move to Honda's new Kumamoto plant in 2009, where other bikes currently built in the Hamamatsu factory will also be built.

The Marysville plant will continue to build Honda's other products, and all staff will be moved onto new production lines negating the need for layoffs.
