American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Torrance, Calif. says the final manufacturing run of the Rune will occur in Spring 2005, but says the decision to end the production run does not indicate a decision to discontinue the flagship model.
"Honda is very proud of this historic model achievement, and our pursuit of the challenge of bringing a concept to production reality for our customers,” said Ray Blank, American Honda's Motorcycle Division Vice President.
"We want to reassure our dealers and loyal customers that the completion of this model run doesn't herald an end to this fabulous motorcycle, nor to Honda's determined pursuit of bringing concepts to production reality,” he said.
Honda says the Rune was scheduled to be limited in numbers from the outset. The company says its dealer network is currently being informed about the final production's small volume allocation. Due to rising material costs associated with this model, this final run will reflect a price increase and orders will be limited.
