The company increased its production in 2014 by manufacturing large-sized motorcycles such as the CBR650 series. Various types and models of motorcycles from Thai Honda have been exported to global customers in numerous countries including Japan, Europe, North America and Australia.

Dr. Atchaka Sriboonruang, Permanent Secretary, Thailand Ministry of Industry, Mr. Noriaki Abe, Chief Operating Officer Regional Operations (Asia & Oceania) of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Mr. Yoshiyuki Matsumoto, Managing Officer & Representative of Development, Purchasing and Production (Asia & Oceania) of Honda Motor Co., Ltd. jointly presided over the observance in Bangkok.
