Suzuki Nears Completion of New Motorcycle Manufacturing Plant in Japan


Bryan Bosch

 

  • Engineering, development, engine production and vehicle assembly into one location and will increase efficiency.
  • Nearly 700,000 square foot facility on a site covering more than 40 acres.
  • This all new facility will produce the majority of Suzuki two-wheeled products for U.S. distribution.

 

New Facility Merges Three Separate Facilities and Positions Suzuki for Continued Growth

BREA, CA – June 26, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Suzuki Motor of America, Inc (SMAI), is happy to announce the creation of a new manufacturing plant in Hamamatsu, Japan, home to its parent company, Suzuki Motor Corp. (SMC). The new facility will combine engineering, development, engine production and vehicle assembly into one location and will increase efficiency in the production and delivery of Suzuki’s ever-diversifying motorcycles..

Originally announced in 2014, this five-year consolidation plan is near completion. Previously, Suzuki motorcycles were developed and manufactured across three locations in Japan – product engineering and development teams worked at the company’s Ryuyo facility; Suzuki produced engines at its Takatsuka plant; and motorcycle assembly lines operated at its Toyokawa plant. These three operations will now be centralized into the new Hamamatsu Plant in the Miyakoda district, in a nearly 700,000 square foot facility on a site covering more than 40 acres.

This all new facility will produce the majority of Suzuki two-wheeled products for U.S. distribution. The site of the facility was chosen in part due to its geographically desirable location and proximity to Suzuki headquarters.

“This action underlines Suzuki’s commitment to engineering and manufacturing motorcycles at the forefront of performance and innovation,” said Kerry Graeber, Vice President MC/ATV Sales and Marketing for SMAI. “Suzuki Motor Corporation in Japan, along with Suzuki Motor of America, Inc., will be even better equipped to meet the unique needs of American motorcycle buyers.”

Suzuki also operates an All-Terrain Vehicle assembly plant in Rome, Georgia.  Active since 2001, Suzuki Manufacturing of America (SMAC) exclusively builds Suzuki’s award-winning line of utility-focused ATVs for worldwide distribution. Suzuki launched all-new versions of its KingQuad 750 and KingQuad 500 in May.

Bring back the RMX250 with modern updates included. Omit the Z however (keep it a two stroke).

      just bought a new radiator for my 2005 rmz 450 and it does not match up to the one that is in there now from the previous owner. the new one has more hose attachments than the old one. i began to search for the correct fit and found that the 2006 rmz radiator looks to have the same hose mounts that mine currently has. would i be fine to put a 2006 radiator in my 2005 in terms of size, thanks

      Fastway Air Ext Foot Pegs for KTM and Husqvarna.  These give you some nice adjustability with height and angle. They were only on the bike for a short period of time before pulling off when it was sold as I planned to put them on my new bike.  Plans changed and you now have the opportunity to get these for only $150!   Comes with the pegs, springs and the mounting pins which cost extra.  This set up costs over $300 with tax.  
      I don’t know all of the types of they fit. But I do know they fit the 2016 and later KTM'S and Husquvarna bikes.  I believe they will fit most all bikes, but you may need to buy a different fit kit.
      ONLY $160 SHIPPED IN THE LOWER UNITED STATES. 
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.  Thanks, Dave
