According to the Associated Press, Honda Motor Co. plans to stop producing motorcycles in the United States next year. The 330,000-square-foot plant in Marysville, Ohio, built in 1979, currently produces the company's Gold Wing and VTX motorcycles. Honda says that production of these bikes will move to a new motorcycle plant in Kumamoto, Japan, in 2009.

I hope this means that the Japan only bikes will be available here in the US at last. Many more models in Japan than here.
