Dear Wildon
Finally I have the VIN of my coming car with me... MALBB51SLAN136855. As you earlier told me, the 10th one being an A seems to denote a 2010 make. Please go ahead and denote the no. for me. Thanks.

Hey thats an interesting one - A 2 wheeler for the first time and frankly i have never done this before. But as per the VIN ie. 9th and 10th digit ... its a January 2010 model

P.S:- its a guess as i don't have any samples to compare with.


Update:- I just now compared the VIN of my friends Honda Activa by looking at the VIN and RC book and concluded that the 9th digit of Honda activa vin represents MONTH and 10th digit represents the YEAR, so in your case it January 2010 Manufactured only
