Motorbike servicing still available

Written by  Staff Reporters

The country might be in lockdown, but farmers and essential farm services are working as hard as ever to keep the rural economy rolling.

While dealerships have closed their showroom doors during the COVID-19 lockdown, farmers can still get essential gear like motorbikes and generators repaired and serviced.

Honda Motorbikes says its dealer network is still providing essential servicing and repair services to farmers during the Level-4 lockdown.

The company says it has several safety measures in place to limit transmission risk, including treating all vehicles it services with disinfectant and following all Ministry of Primary Industry guidelines regarding Covid-19.
