    VIN Number codes

    Here is what I know so far:

    Example of Grom VIN Number: MLHJC3123E5000123

    ML (Country Manufactured) - THAILAND
    H (Manufacturer) - HONDA
    J (Country of Manufacturer) - JAPAN
    E (Model Year) - 2014
    5 (Factory of Manufacture)

    And I guess the last 3 numbers would be what number Grom that came off the assembly line.

    Don't know what the "C" and the four numbers after it mean.

    All Groms should be JC61. JC61 is the Honda "item" identification. I'm not positive but I think all modern Honda bikes have a JC number. The Honda factory rep that was running the Honda display tent at MotoGP told me on his list of all the bikes that are on display, they are called out by their JC number.

    JC61 is the chassis code of the frame model.

    the last 6th vin number is how many model groms were made of the factory assembly line.

    You're spot on about the model, but this does change between models of bike.

    For example, the CTX700 has a VIN range of JH2RC682 *EK000001 for 2014. The internal model is therefore RC68. I'm not sure what comes into this decision (as the RC30, aka VFR750R is a cool v-4 superbike) but I can't really make any reasoning out of how Honda decides what "model" something is.

    The number before the date code (E) is a randomly generated number that checks the VIN in an algorithmic way. A better explanation is here: Vehicle Identification Number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    The check digit allow you to share part of your VIN (like the last three digits) without letting someone reconstruct it by filling in the blanks. Although, I suppose it's a 1 in 33 chance to guess it.

    I know the Japanese-made Hondas use it, so I'm also assuming the Thai-built ones do as well.
