- Honda temporarily suspends production
- Operations halted across all four plants in India
As India is grappling with the more vicious second wave of the COVID-19 virus, two-wheeler manufacturers have once again started applying a temporary brake on productions. After Hero MotoCorp, Honda has now announced that it has temporarily halted production across all four plants in India that are located in Manesar (Haryana), Tapukara (Rajasthan), Narsapura (Karnataka) and Vithalapur (Gujarat).
Depending on the severity of the lockdown, Honda will be reviewing its production resumption plans in the subsequent months. During this temporary suspension, the company will be utilising this time to carry out its annual plant maintenance activities. As it has been the case until now, the Honda office associates will continue working from home in order to provide the needed support to its customers and business partners. Whereas in plants, only essential workers will be allowed to enter and perform their duties with complete hygiene and health precautions.
In other news, Honda has recently got a trademark registered for the name NX200 which is expected to be that of its upcoming adventure touring motorcycle. Going by the suffix ‘200’, it will mostly be based on the same platform as the Hornet 2.0. To read our speculation about this bike in detail, click here.
