Honda plans to boost motorcycle output capacity at a Brazilian plant by more than 30 percent by 2009, increasing annual production in the South American country to 2 million units, Thomson Financial reported Dec. 13.
The OEM will expand existing facilities and add production lines at its plant in Manaus, northern Brazil.
Honda is likely to spend 5 billion yen ($44 million) or so on the work, which will commence next year.
With the move, the company aims to boost exports to Colombia and other South American nations, the report said.
