Great video showing modern manufacturing. Crank shaft machining, fiber optic camera to ensure oil passages for main bearings, cylinder honing, CMM for inspection. Really shows why Motorcycles have become so reliable for so many more miles. Surprising amount of hand assembling.
I've watched it 3 times all the way through. I'm familiar with most of the machines on a much smaller scale. What really impressed me were the people. It's obvious that they take their jobs seriously. Yes, lots of hand work and lots of quality control.
