ok, so I know the cruisers and some of the atv's are made in the Marysville plant. Does anyone know where the XR650L or R are made?

Thanks :)

pop quiz hotshot, which was the first honda bike or atv to be manufactured in a u.s. plant?

btw: did you know that honda owns several of the companies that make oem equipment for harley davidson. electronics being one.

nope. close. the goldwing interstate was the second honda to come out of a u.s. plant (circa 1980). any idea what came before that? anyone?

the answer may surprise you...

(btw: i'm no expert, just being fed this info from my dad. thought it was interesting)

man what a dead board. looks like it's just you and me checking this thing today. xr650 owners must be of the "strong silent type." anywho, the first honda to come out of a u.s. plant was the cr50r it was air cooled back then and easy to build. it was followed shortly thereafter by the goldwing interstate.

The CR250R was made here in the states? As Johnny Carson would say..."I did not know that". Yeah, the forum's movin' kinda slow today...now we know how the Maytag Repairman feels. :)
