It's made in Spain....
from the press release:

The new FMX650 is a dual sport model featuring an air-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder, 650cc engine and super motard styling. With fun motoring as its design concept, the FMX650 is equally at home in the city or out on the highway. Starting in spring 2005, the FMX650 will be released in a wide range of European markets. The FMX650 is manufactured by Honda affiliate Montesa Honda S.A. of Spain, and annual European sales are projected to reach 7,000 units.

Absofeckinlootly.......why did the idiots bring it out when they have the CRF450X and the XR650R to base motos on???? a change of wheels and brakes...bobs your uncle, a 450sm and a 650sm, both with Honda reliability and a bit of go in them....unlike the afore mentioned "dommie" engined, heavy...need i go on. It is like bringing out an 2005 XR600 sm, before you XR6 owners start spitting on me..i have one..why bring out a bike based on really old tech when you have proven tech which is way more current? Grrrrrrrr, i emailed Honda my views and they said "we will forward your thoughts on to the relevent department" Bin me thinks :D Rant over.
