Honda Motor Company, Japan reported it was under cyber-attacks earlier in the week, leading to a virus problem in its servers. The result was that over 11 Honda plants were affected globally and five were in USA itself. Both, Honda two-wheeler and four-wheeler plants have been affected because of a global network outage. While Honda Cars India reported that the cyber-attacks did not impact its production, but Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has reported that it had to temporarily adjust its production schedule at its various plants.

As per a report from the Press Trust of India (PTI), a spokesperson from HMSI said, "A company-wide network outage has been reported by Honda companies globally. While the cause of the problem is currently under investigation, the recovery process is underway."

Details are scarce at this point and carandbike has reached out to Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India for an update on the situation. Honda Two-wheelers began operations at all its four plants in India last month, with all of its 308 suppliers resuming operations as well. The production schedule was being ramped up in a phased manner but had to be re-adjusted because of the cyber-attacks. The company began sales and service in over 70 per cent of the dealerships as well.
