Honda to boost production in Vietnam

Two factories to produce 2 million motorcycles a year

HONDA JAPAN is planning to increase motorcycle production in the company's Vietnam factories by 500,000 units per year, following a £46.5 million investment.

The boost in figures will see both of the company's Vietnamese plants churning out around 2 million motorcycles per annum.

The increase in production is likely to take place in the latter half of 2011.
