Honda has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with ride-sharing company Grab, to begin discussions towards a collaboration on motorcycle sharing services, specifically in Southeast Asia. It’s understood that the collaboration will first involve Honda’s motorcycle arm and GrabBike.

Honda is the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world, while GrabBike is Grab’s motorcycle ride sharing app, now active in cities with very heavy traffic jams, where motorcycles is likely to be a quicker mode of transport than cars. It’s currently operational in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam, Bangkok, Thailand and Jakarta, Indonesia.

Little is known just yet, with Honda’s official release giving very little info on the partnership. It’s said that “Honda and Grab will work together and strive to realise new mobility services in the area of sharing by conducting experimental initiatives in Southeast Asia while utilising resources of the two companies.”

Honda’s motorcycle lineup, sales network and services are at the core of this new partnership with Malaysian-owned, Singapore-based Grab. Beyond that, Honda will work on the mitigation of traffic congestion in urban areas through the utilisation of telematics and other technologies, together with efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.

“Multiple areas [of collaboration] are in discussion, and that will include the sale of bikes to drivers,” a Grab spokesperson told TechCrunch. It’s suggested that the collaboration may also expand to Honda and Grab’s four-wheeled divisions at a later date.
