Assembling the Africa Twin

I found this video of the AT assembly line quite interesting. The phone ringing in the background is probably a customer calling to find out when his bike will be delivered

Of course the tricolor version gets assigned a top Honda assembly engineer and these are individually hand assembled using the very latest techniques and advanced tools. 'Cos they are the fastest models.

And prior to delivery the prettiest scantily-clad Geishas wash and polish them and leave a hand-written note under the seat for the new owner.
