    Re: Covid affecting Honda production

    I noticed lack of Hondas during my recent visits to the dealership when I bought, and later picked up my new scooter, and I asked about it, they just aren't getting anything from Honda except generator/inverters and snow blowers, While they are not getting everything they are ordering from the other manufacturers, they are getting something, and sometimes have to take on a whole container, but, no Hondas

    I think Honda will be the first to go electric in any meaningful way

    Yikes! Heard the OEM glass for the Subaru Forester I sold was a few weeks back ordered.

    This is news-ish.

    From Wall Street Journal:

    WASHINGTON—The U.S. Energy Department has concluded that the Covid pandemic most likely arose from a laboratory leak, according to a classified intelligence report recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress.

    The shift by the Energy Department, which previously was undecided on how the virus emerged, is noted in an update to a 2021 document by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines’s office.

    The new report highlights how different parts of the intelligence community have arrived at disparate judgments about the pandemic’s origin. The Energy Department now joins the Federal Bureau of Investigation in saying the virus likely spread via a mishap at a Chinese laboratory. Four other agencies, along with a national intelligence panel, still judge that it was likely the result of a natural transmission, and two are undecided.

    The Energy Department’s conclusion is the result of new intelligence and is significant because the agency has considerable scientific expertise and oversees a network of U.S. national laboratories, some of which conduct advanced biological research.

    Re: Covid affecting Honda production

    its not just motorcycles, I bought a new Civic SI this year and was lucky I only had to wait a couple weeks for my car as it was already on a boat on it's way over here. otherwise the wait was 3-6 months.

    oh and they bent me over for $5k over sticker price (which was the lowest I found in 4 dealers, the others wanted $8k over sticker)

    I would have never bought if my old SI didn't get totaled, luckily I got $21k for that 8 year old car with 80k miles on it, I only paid $24k brand new so I at least made out like a bandit on that transaction

    Re: Covid affecting Honda production

    Integra is a 200hp engine… so an SI?

    So really they just brought back the RSX but are trying to sell more based off the Integra name.

    Re: Covid affecting Honda production

    gas mileage and hp is similar to a camry and cargo area is larger ~24cf vs ~15cf...better warranty...but cvt vs electronically controlled trans and premium gas recommended...base model may be an option
