Looks like we'll soon have Argentine-made Interceptors, GTs, and Himalayans. That's good for RE: broaden the manufacturing base to avoid supply shocks and buttress against the vagaries of the Indian market.

They should come to England we have always had a good relationship and build bikes here, a lot of our design has gone into them.

Yes, but in Argentina they'll have access to all that 2nd & 3rd generation German craftsmanship!   ;D ;D ;D

Well - the relationship between an empire and it's colony.

It is not very promising for RE to produce bikes in Great Britain. The market is rather small and only local, but does not allow access to e.g. the European market easily as UK choose to leave the EU.
Another fact will be that labor is too expensive in Great Britain.  Argentina offers a large potential of cheap workers, a large domestic market and – most important – has direct access to other MERCOSUR states – especially Brasilia.
This year RE will also start production in Thailand for this large domestic market, as well as an easy access to Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries with a large demand of cheap motorcycles.

Well the EU is a corrupted institution that's why we left in first place, no one should want to get along with corrupt people, they are swindlers and that European Court is a bent fasical, robbing the tax payer blind, l am glad we are out of it we can make our own decisions all the killers we were forced to import by Blair. The reason South America is a good prospect boils down to the poverty they know people want cheap transport the markets there could be hudge and then there's the parts another hudge market you are talking billions.

Plenty if you think about it, and are a politically conscious person, for one thing look at the statistics, look at the money they used to bleed from us, all our fish they stole, bloody cheek coming in to our waters and stealing all the best seafood when many national brits can't afford to buy it, the only people who supported the EU were the bunch of leeches making a killing from it, don't start me on that one. I am not saying they were not hard working slaves, some completely took over factories, but enough was enough the have to stand on their own two feet not ours. You don't share the british economy like a bag of sweets and get nothing in return.

You'll get all the evidence you need, we are going to get tough and l mean tough, no more Eastern European criminals comming here with murder convictions living from a fat feast of welfare to kill a second or third time, no more fat fresh fillets on EU tables whilst we settle the sprats, change is comming that's the only evidence you need consider, change is comming.
