On May 6, Honda resumed production in its Kumamoto Factory (Ozu-machi, Kikuchi-gun, Kumamoto Prefecture) which had been halted since the night of April 14 due to the effects of The 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake.
Honda has completed the removal of debris from, and damage assessment of, the most affected facilities such as the automobile assembly plant, and partly resumed assembly of its main motorcycle models on June 6. Production initially resumed on a small-scale, although it will be increased in stages according to facility conditions, aiming towards a complete recovery in mid-August.
Honda is fully committed to continue its efforts towards a rapid recovery, and is grateful for its customers’ understanding.
