Suzuki Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation are two of Japan’s biggest motorcycle manufacturers.

The Suzuki brand is available through Suzuki bike dealers in the UK.
In a joint statement that was issued by both Suzuki and Toyota, they will immediately establish a framework for the implementation of the possible collaborations to bring it to realization. It is also expected that the collaboration will see the two companies together on autonomous driving technology.
While Toyota and Suzuki have not revealed the work that they are planning to collaborate on, speculations suggest that the two companies are developing autonomous driving systems. Toyota has already taken the lead on the technology of self-driving car and it is expected that the auto manufacturers will help Suzuki by sharing its expertise in the production of compact cars. It is more likely that one of the possibilities will be small hybrid cars from joint manufacturing to generate higher economies of scale.
In order to avoid Japan’s anti-trust laws, Toyota and Suzuki will sell their vehicles under separate brands but consumers can expect a new venture that will be funded by both manufacturers for the expansion of their partnerships.
