Japan's Kyodo news agency reports that Maruishi has effectively gone bankrupt as banks have suspended transactions with the firm on its second failure to honour a bill.

The bicycle maker has liabilities totalling some 2.9 billion yen, said Teikoku Databank Ltd., a Japanese credit reference agency.
