From failing to keep up with the latest trends to declining sales figures, the Japanese brand Suzuki seem to be having not the greatest amount of luck as they have decided to close down their Malaysian factory.

This factory began creating and assembling automatic and manual motorcycles such as the Suzuki Address, Next, Belang and Axelo. To save the factory they initially they cut down production levels due to the falling demand for their products. Nikkei Asian Review revealed that production levels at the factory fell from 15,000 units to 8,000 in just two years.

Suzuki claims that they will ‘export motorbikes directly from Japan into Malaysia instead of assembling in the country’.
