Made in Japan. My previous Thai made Honda was actually finished slightly better than this one. Just a bit more attention paid to detail.

Excellent way for bike criminals to collect a list of valid VIN numbers for cloning bikes...

Yeah , I'm surprised people haven't obscured theirs on here but are you thinking the site itself is suspect ?

I dont think any site that requires that you enter either your reg number, but particularly your full VIN is a good thing.

I took one look at the page and what it was asking for and closed the window.

Honda Vins describe the county of manufacture. the factory. the model and the production number. obviously its that final number thats the important bit, that is unique. Most sites ask for the first X number of digits so your privacy is protected. This one did not and I found that far too dodgy for my taste.
A wonderful thing is work, I could watch it all day.

anybody can walk up to a bike and photograph the VIN and reg number no difference, in fact that is an easier way to clone a vehicle, a website only asking for a reg or VIN to be entered only displays the VIN which can be partially scrubbed out if screenshotted, no reg is displayed or colour :thumb:

edit: they could even photo the engine number too, which isn't displayed on the website, so parking your bike at a shopping centre is more vulnerable to have it's details recorded by somebody than having some part of it on a website :cheers:

Agreed. The website allows anyone to enter any numberplate and it gives them the vin so this must be a public database. Posting screenshot here is no concern as crims could just enter some plates and get it anyway.

I never used to be a conspiracy theorist but I think that years of exposure to Chemtrails is taking its toll . Watch the skies . 🤪
