Enter your VIN number and get the basic details. Of course it is not like the detailed information that Wildon provides.

BHPians - need some quick advice about VIN for two wheelers. I have booked Honda activa and would be visiting dealer tomorrow for reminder payment. Dealer has confirmed that they would be giving me chasis no (VIN). So wanted to understand if VIN for Honda cars and two wheelers is same with respect to information across various characters?

In other words can I use the same technic mentioned in this thread for Honda cars to decode manufacturing month and year for Honda Activa ?


If not, could some one guide me about VIN format for Honda two wheelers?

Dear Members,

I tried to decode the VIN for the car that I am buying for my parents. The dealer gave me the VIN: MAJBXXMRTBDU80489

When I tried to decode the above I with www.myvehicledetails.com its showing that the vehicle is a Ford Fiesta Feb 2013 production and the engine as 1.6 Sigma LC.

The vehicle that I have booked is a 2013 Fiesta Classic 1.4 Diesel. Could you please help me with the specification confirmation. Thanks.

Need some quick help guys,

Wanted to know how would the year and month be coded for a Honda CBR 250R. I'm going to the showroom now and they say they have the bike in stock while most others showrooms are giving a 45 day waiting period. I'm skeptical they might be selling older bikes. So please help me.
