Enriching people's everyday lives through technology


Honda Power Products operations started with the desire to apply engine technologies in ways useful for people’s daily lives and work situations. Beginning in 1953 with a general- purpose engine developed for agricultural equipment, the power products business has now passed its 60th year of offering an ever-expanding set of products including genera- tors, tillers, snow throwers, and outboard engines. Through products familiar in daily life such as a household gas engine cogeneration unit, Honda continues to offer new values in the area of energy savings or energy generation.

Ever since 50 years ago, Honda technologies have
been easy on people and the natural environment

In 1964, Honda launched outboard engines equipped with 4-stroke engines, ahead of other companies around the world. For 50 years, Honda has continued its commitment to producing and selling 4-stroke outboard engines that do not discharge oil into the water, based on our belief that “Products that are used on the water should not pollute the water.” Customers across the globe, including a core of professional users, have consistently chosen Honda outboard engines because of their excellent fuel efficiency, outstanding reliability, and the diverse Honda product lineup available from 2 to 250 horsepower.
