Product Development Process
Anytime you use a Honda engine in production, we want to be involved to ensure mutual customer satisfaction.
While this may make your product development process slightly longer, it will ultimately result in a better product offering for you – and higher customer satisfaction.
Please start by contacting your regional engine distributor. Your distributor will help guide you through the engine application and product development process and will be a key support partner.
Your distributor and/or Honda will answer your questions on pricing, availability, and technical requirements. They will also help to match an engine to your specific needs.
Once your product is properly matched with a Honda engine, Honda will thoroughly test the engine application. We look at many different aspects effecting long term engine durability, including:
- Oil temperature
- Engine loading
- Operating RPM
- Mounting configuration
- Wire routing
The goal is to ensure the highest level of long term customer satisfaction.
Should Honda find any concerns, we will work closely with you to resolve them.
Once you receive approval, you will be ready to order engines for production.
Honda has the largest support network available in the business, with 25 distributors and 14,000 dealers nationwide. You and your customers will find all the support you need for any engine parts or service matters.
