Firm caught making copy motorcycles

The Interior Ministry’s Counter Counterfeit Committee (CCC) cracked down on a China-owned motorbike company, Boding Investment Co Ltd (BD), in Por Sen Chey district, Phnom Penh for producing fake Honda motorcycles.

CCC officials found a total of 444 imitation bikes on Thursday morning on BD premises.

The company also imports and sells motorbikes from China, said CCC chief Liv Sophanarith.

“After we received the lawsuit from Honda Motor Company, we went straight to the premises to investigate,” he said, adding that they found production equipment for manufacturing popular Honda models such as the Zoomer X, Scoopy and Dream.

Officers held two suspects who are thought to be the company’s owners. Documents on the copyright violation have been filed in court.

The factory is believed to have been open for some time and distributes fully assembled cycles and parts to shops around the capital.

Boding officials could be reached for comment.
