Honda announces the European launch of the GP range of general purpose engines

The newly-introduced Honda GP range aims to meet the demand for engines in the growing market for light duty applications.


This new range complements Honda's popular and successful GX range – the "world standard" to power professional machinery.


Honda's GX range of general purpose engines features outstanding reliability, excellent quality and compact design which ensure compatibility with a wide range of equipment.


While inheriting these characteristics from the GX range, the GP engines' level of durability and toughness is different and more suitable to power products which are commonly used for relatively short continuous operating times with lighter workloads – such as home-use tillers, aerators and other applications.


For heavy load or high vibration applications, intensive usage at lower temperatures (< -5C), in construction or rental businesses, the Honda GX engines remain the only choice.


Two new models are introduced – the GP160 (163 cm³, 3.6 kW) and the GP200 (196 cm³, 4.1 kW) – both produced by Jialing Honda Engine Co in China.




The new range is easy to mount with a compact design. The GP engine is fitted with a white fan cover, fuel tank and black resin recoil cover, giving it a distinctive look.


By introducing the GP range as affordable and reliable engines, developed for light duty applications, Honda has increased the choice to power applications for a wide range of jobs.


The best value for money


We are confident that with the introduction of the new GP range, Honda supports its customers even better "to help people get things done".
