Where is the CT manufactured?

I presume it’s in Japan. I’ll be over there in the spring so I wondered about visiting the factory. Went to Mazda last year in Hiroshima, really interesting.
Anyone know?

I believe the CT is Japan built, tho I’d be very surprised to find any currently rolling down the production line.

Mu 2016 US model was manufactured in Japan. Here in the US, the country of origin is on the VIN sticker under the front left cowl.

At 1min 10sec you can see the famous lack of grease on the steering head bearings Honda's are notorious for !
