In April, an earthquake hit Japan and affected the production of Honda motorcycles. The manufacturing plant was off production for two weeks after not one, but two earthquakes struck Japan, the biggest registering 7.3 on the Richter Scale.
Now, Honda has announced that the factory is back to normal production after the natural disaster. The motorcycle maker said that production is virtually normalised at its Kumamoto factory.
Honda said that it is still working to stabilize its supply network for engine parts for small vehicles. Some of the production has been transferred from Honda's Kumamoto factory to its Suzuka factory.
As mentioned earlier, the severe earthquakes left around 50 dead and the Honda two-wheeler factory was severely damaged. The repeated aftershocks made it impossible to even step into the factory to inspect.
