H type engine

H type engine (to power agricultural equipment, 1953)

Enriching people's everyday life through technology


With thoughtful consideration for the many people who had to travel a long way to shop, company founder Soichiro Honda started out by attaching an auxiliary engine to power a bicycle. This desire to create "things useful for people's lives" underlies all of Honda's work and serves as a pillar of support for the company's business operations. Honda power products business grew out of a vision to "help people enjoy happier lives through technology" in light of the hard work endured by people in farming and other activities. Starting with an engine for agricultural equipment launched in 1953, Honda is now in its 60th year of offering an ever-expanding set of products including generators and tillers to help people get things done.
