Change of HONDA engine technical measurement to Net Power Output
Honda has considered and decided to change the indication of power output measurement for Honda General Purpose Engines and Power Equipment Products to be “Net Power Output”, complied with Honda Auto-mobile’s and Motorcycle’s measurement standard. This “Net Power Output” measurement results from the testing which now includes its standard air cleaner and muffler that gives a closer indication of engine power output potentially to the applications where standard air cleaner and muffler are used. This change will give a meaningful indication of the power output potential of the engine for the customer to compare engine output between models.
With reference to this, it’s only change of method describing the power output measurement, without any change of product assembly or its actual performance.
