Mikuni Corporation (株式会社ミクニ Kabushiki-gaisha Mikuni?) is a leading Japanese carburettor manufacturing company that was founded in 1923 and incorporated in 1948.[1] Their business activities are centred on carburettors, fuel injectors and other automobile related equipment. The operations are carried through the following divisions: Automobile-related, Living and Environment related goods and Sale of imported goods.[2]

Company background[edit]

Since 1960, Mikuni are best known for their licensed copies of Solex carburettors that were used on many performance Japanese cars. Today, Mikuni also has a solid business foundation in Southeast Asia especially in Thailand and Indonesia. This is because many major motorcycle manufacturers such as Yamaha, Suzuki, Hyosung Motors & Machinery Inc. and Honda use Mikuni carburettors in scooters and mopeds.
