Here is what I know so far:

Example of Grom VIN Number: MLHJC3123E5000123

ML (Country Manufactured) - THAILAND
H (Manufacturer) - HONDA
J (Country of Manufacturer) - JAPAN
E (Model Year) - 2014
5 (Factory of Manufacture)

And I guess the last 3 numbers would be what number Grom that came off the assembly line.

Don't know what the "C" and the four numbers after it mean.

Thanks for breaking it down, it sure seems like this is it. Maybe that number after the C represent the model of bike it is?

I guess that means I'm number 1485. Anyone hear if they had a limited run for this year?

The C could be, along with the number code, the destination country.

US bikes are different from Thai bikes and from Euro bikes and I think even Euro bikes are different from UK bikes

My understanding was they would build as many as needed, haven't heard anything about a production cap.

This would make sense, I do remember this with other vehicles, they always have one letter representing the country of destination.

The letter indicates the country. The bike codes are different for each country. In general, each transport has its own separate vin number. One of my bikes came across a number with a two-digit combination of 13. I had never believed in superstition before, so I did not pay attention to it. It was the only bike that I constantly had various problems with. For 2 months of owning it, I got into 3 accidents, several times it was repaired, and also once they tried to steal it ... I despaired and sold it for spare parts. When I was buying a new motorcycle, I noticed the VIN code and there was a combination 144. I was curious to know what this means and read this article https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-144-meaning/. This motorcycle has been with me for several months and I have never had any problems with it (the models are the same by the way). Apparently I'll have to believe in the magic of numbers ...
