    What's the difference between a right hand drive and a left hand drive manual transmission? They just need a mirrored interior and a revised bell housing for the fork. Literally everything else could remain the same except for a few bolts and brackets :dunno:

    To me, that doesn't say it will only be rhd... They asked about rhd since they are Australian, but it doesn't seem to be rhd only by the phrasing

    My take on reading that is, manual has been made, for the LHD, but he was saying its important to make the RHD manual as well, since it needs to be sold in Japan as well. It would be ignorant to offer on RHD in manual, when a majority of their market is LHD. That's my take on it.

    The transmission, bellhousing, etc. are almost always unaffected by driver position. The differences will be the pedals, master cylinder, lines to the transmission, and the interior panels. Sometimes the shifter is different as well (angle).

    But none of that actually matters, the decision will come down to what they want to sell in each country, it's not an engineering or design concern.

    I believe the mention of the RHD market is more implying its availability on the 4-cyl model, as the 4cyl is yet to be confirmed for North America (aka the big LHD market). That's just a guess though.
