Watching a show on HD Channel called Twist of the Throttle and they are showing the history of Honda.

They had the process of CBR600RR being built on the line, takes them 1 hour to build these and they come off the line at the rate of 1 per minute per day.

This Friday's Twist of the Throttle is on Ducati.

Surprisingly, none of the screws fall off at that rate when assembling the bikes at that speed. It would be my dream to tour their assembly lines.

I've seen a couple of those shows, they're pretty good. Interesting how some of the companies started building bikes and their history, and of course the assembly process is amazing whether it's the mass production of the Japanese bikes or individual assembly of MVs. There was also an episode that they went to the Astars headquarters.

It's interesting how a lot of the manufacturers didn't even originally start out building motorcycles. Kawasaki, Yamaha, Ducati...they built industrial equipment, pianos and radios before motorcycles :fiddy:
