Honda Motorcycle Country/Area Codes Explained & Country/Area List

Honda assigns international country/area codes to their motorcycles for the purpose of differentiating models produced for a specific market. Generally, models with different country codes will have unique specifications tailored to meet the requirements of the markets they want to sell in, for such reasons as meeting emissions regulations of the chosen market.

Why is the Honda Motorcycle Area Code important to know for ordering parts?

As mentioned above, the codes have unique specifications to requirements of the markets they want to sell in, depending on where your bike was produced for, the following areas; Engine Control Unit (Power output parts), Safety Lighting components, Emissions components and the speedometer type are the main bike part sections affected by area/country codes.

Where can you find the area/country code for your Honda Motorcycle?

The code is not carved in your bike's frame or engine. Your starting point for ordering any parts for your Honda motorcycle is your bike’s VIN.


The motorcycle VIN is a 17-digit code which consists of letters and numbers which tells you what country your bike was manufactured in, the bike manufacturer, the type of vehicle it is, the model of the vehicle, the year it was manufactured, and the production line number. Find a detailed explanation on what a motorcycle VIN is and what it tells you here and discover how to decode the year of your motorcycle with our helpful Honda Motorcycle Vin Year Decoder blog.


Use bike’s VIN to guarantee you order the correct part if unsure of the bike’s area code. The differences between parts of the same model but with different area code can be minuscule but are massively important for fitment and performance. For example, the same part for a model with different area codes can have a sharper point or corner and the other will have a more rounded point or smoother curve so be aware of this when ordering parts.
