Re: where the Honda CBR1000RR '08 manufactured ?

It depends entirely on the VIN. Here's a site that breaks it down:

VINs

Using that, I was able to tell that my bike was pieced together in the Hamamatsu factory in Japan.

Pretty much every sportbike is made in Japan; always has and always will be. It is the smaller bikes that can be made in a different country.

All Honda Fireblades, from the very first one have been built in Hamamatsu,

They are currently building a new super factory, and once finished will move production of there premium products there (Blade included), I cant remember the new ones name though.

Kumamoto is the new plant. It really has nothing to do with "premium" at alll. Honda will make all of the bikes there with the exception of the bikes made just for local markets.

Yes, but the plant is being closed for motorcycle production and moved to the new plant in Japan. All of this can be found using Google.
