Major player expected to produce only 260,000 motorcycles in 2009
The announcement means the company will produce just over 260,000 units - Yamaha's lowest output level in nearly forty years.
According to Reuters news agency, Yamaha will halt production at its main assembly plant, to reduce output by 13,000 motorcycles as a starting point.
Further reductions in production are expected over the coming months.
