Marysville Motorcycle Plant
The Marysville Motorcycle Plant was a Honda manufacturing facility located eight miles northwest of Marysville, Ohio. The assembly plant opened in 1979 as American Honda Motor Company's first production facility in the United States. It was on the original U.S. Route 33, renamed Honda Parkway when the Route was moved, at the site of an abandoned Pure Oil gas station and a long since razed "lubritorium," and the former rail crossing of the abandoned Erie Lackawanna Marion-Springfield spur. The Gold Wing and Magna motorcycles were made there. Honda announced it would cease motorcycle production at the Marysville Motorcycle Plant in 2009. Some employees there were moved the Marysville Auto Plant, located at the same facility, or took early retirement. Honda shifted motorcycle production to Japan.
