It has been 70 years since Honda launched and built its first Dream D-Type way back in 1949. 70 years in the motorcycle industry is already something to shout about but going strong with over 400 million bikes produced worldwide? Now, that’s an achievement worth celebrating.
Honda has come a long way since the days of the World War and with 35 factories located in 25 countries around the globe, the production continues to be strong as the demand for their ever-evolving bikes of all shapes and sizes. No matter who you are, there’s always a perfect Honda bike for you.
According to Takahiro Hachigo, CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd, “For 70 years Honda has provided to customers worldwide motorcycles that make life easier and enjoyable. As a result, we have achieved our 400 million-unit milestone. I am grateful to all our customers, and everyone involved in development, manufacturing, sales and service of our products. We will continue to do our best to provide attractive products that meet the needs and dreams of customers worldwide.”
Malaysians are blessed with the current offerings presented by BSH from the entry-level Wave Alpha that basically anyone can afford to the cult-following RS150R super cub.
