Suzuki has announced its intentions of stopping Spanish-based motorcycle production by the end of Q1 2013.

Suzuki’s Spanish motorcycle division will stop its activities by the end of Q1 2013.

This announcement comes just a few days after the Japanese brand announced that they will stop selling cars in the United States. The decision of ending its Spanish activities has been taken due to “accumulated losses created by the reduction and general condition of the economy in Europe at present.”

Suzuki said that warranties, part supply and aftercare for all motorcycles made in Spain will remain available through the firm’s dealer network.
