As the world's largest engine manufacturer, Honda, established in 1948, has wide experience in developing and producing engines. Honda is recognised internationally for its expertise and leadership in developing and making a wide variety of products - from small general purpose engines to sports cars - which incorporate Honda's highly-efficient internal combustion engine technologies.
Honda's OverHead Valve (OHV) and OverHead Camshaft (OHC) designs enhance combustion efficiency, help to reduce fuel and oil consumption and ensure excellent thermal balance. Also the durability, reliability and service life of the engine is extended. All Honda engines are equipped with OHV or OHC technology. Advanced Honda technology is clearly seen in the features of the intelligent iGX engines and the Mini 4-stroke engines.
Superior reliability and quality
Honda engines are built with high quality materials and purpose-made components which ensure reliable long-term use.The GX-engines are covered by a 3-year warranty.
All Honda engines are equipped with an automatic decompression system which enables an easy start. This system, connected to the camshaft, reduces compression by opening the exhaust valve slightly when the engine is being started. This reduces the degree of force needed to start the engine.
Perfectly matching the OEM product
Honda engineers work closely with OEMs to make sure that Honda engines match OEM products and that ‘Powered by Honda' products continue to exceed all customer expectations.
Honda is well aware of its responsibility for the impact on the environment of its corporate activities and its products and is committed to minimising that impact. Honda offers engines which not only meet the EURO2 emission regulations, but also the world's most stringent regulations - CARB Tier 3 and EPA phase 3.
