Times are tough in the bike trade these days and proof of this is Kawasaki anouncing they will be moving production of their larger machines to Thailand from 2010. Following Triumph (Made in England?) who have been doing this for some time, rumour has it that Honda are getting ready to follow suit. What happens when it becomes too expensive to have bikes built there? Maybe all the petrol will have run out by then and we shall all be riding electric bikes once again made in Japan. Ah, the circle of life continues.
