Honda has now reopened their factory in Japan after the earthquake. The Kumamoto plant was hit by two earthquakes back in April this year, and the region has made significant gains to recoup the devastation and knock to their economic progress.

Major damage was caused to the factory building and equipment which resulted in Honda temporarily closing their Japanese factory to recover. Kumamoto is famous as the main manufacturing plant for Honda's large capacity and adventure motorcycle lines.

The debris was removed and the factory was partially repaired which enabled Honda to resume production slowly, then gradually back to normal.

Honda wished for the earliest possible recovery of the affected areas and made the utmost effort to deliver products to customers in a timely manner.
