Well ive been working in Mumbai the past two weeks, watching the daily race of 150cc Hondas through the busy streets and thought I would take a look at Honda prices here in India - as the guys in the office has said how cheap the 150cc honda bikes are new here

Well turns out they have the new Africa Twin, however when readign the link below it does inply that the CRF1000l they sell here, will be made in India

CRF1000L Africa Twin NEW
. Expands its ‘Make in India’ commitment with 2nd offering - the 1000cc legacy CRF1000L Africa Twin
. A true off-road model CRF1000L Africa Twin to ride into India

Wonder how many other countries will be making them locally and if supply for global consumption will come from other counties outside Japan.

If the quality of the Thai bikes is anything to go on then good on Honda!

...the local market Honda accessories however leave little to be desired...

It seems like there's no concern of the quality of bikes coming out of their, for some time now there has been a number of bikes coming out of asia, all without any concern or issues coming up. That's a good sign i'd say.

With production shortages and now earthquake damage at the Japan factory it wouldnt surprise me if they started making bikes in other countries to pick up the shortage.
