Honda to establish Accident Investigation Committee

The following statement has been released by Corporate Communications Honda Motor Co., Ltd.:

Honda has announced that it will establish an independent third party Accident Investigation Committee, to be chaired by Professor Ichiro Kageyama of Nihon University's College of Industrial Technology, to conduct minute analysis on Daijiro Kato's MotoGP accident at Suzuka Circuit, in an attempt to identify the cause of the crash.

Since immediately after the crash, Honda has been analyzing the accident vehicle with Honda Racing Corporation in order to clarify the cause of the accident, however, there has been no analytical data retrieved thus far which would suggest that there was any type of irregularity with the motorcycle.

Committee members to serve on the Accident Investigation Committee will be chosen shortly hereafter in an effort to promote identification of the cause of the accident.
