Honda Motor Co. says it won’t sell motorcycles or accessories to dealers.
The U.S. National Automobile Dealers Association said in a statement on Monday that the dealership chain was not going to sell motorcycles and accessories to anyone.
“Honda Motor has long been a pioneer of the motorcycle and automotive industry, and we will continue to focus on our core business of selling and servicing motorcycles,” said John McManus, president and CEO of the NADA.
“Honda has the widest range of premium motorcycles in the U.K. and is home to one of the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturing facilities in Japan.”
The Honda dealer chain has long had a reputation for being a big seller of motorcycles, including its latest models. “
Our strategy remains to be the same, with our focus being on providing our customers with the best possible motorcycle experience, and to deliver a superior experience in every vehicle we sell.”
The Honda dealer chain has long had a reputation for being a big seller of motorcycles, including its latest models.
Honda has been in the business since the late 1950s.
But as more and more manufacturers have introduced premium motorcycles, the number of Honda dealers has dwindled.
Honda’s U.N. trade group says sales of motorcycles in North America fell 16 percent in the fourth quarter of last year compared with the same period last year.
