Honda mulling motorcycle production in Turkey

Zaman - Japanese automaker Honda is weighing up the option of adding motorcycle production to its manufacturing operations in Turkey. Honda Turkey has received instructions to start feasibility studies on developing a 100 cc-class motorcycle model for the local market, according to the company’s Vice President, Kadir Kutluay.

As the Japanese company is restructuring its global operations, the Turkish division is a likely candidate to produce low-cost motorcycles, as it had been doing in its Istanbul plant until 2002. Honda currently produces the new Civic Sedan in its Sekerpinar plant in Turkey’s northwestern province of Kocaeli.
