Honda Publishes Improved Consumer Website

American Honda has published a new and improved consumer-facing powersports website. Accessible at the familiar URL (https://powersports.honda.com), the site boasts a number of enhancements.

The most noticeable characteristic is a fresh, modern look, with a responsive format optimized to deliver the same great experience across devices—desktops, smartphones and tablets. In addition, the website features a new platform that provides improved website performance, including faster page-load speeds, and it is based on a Sitecore content-management system that allows timely updates.

In addition, the new website encourages user interactivity, as customers can now more easily connect with the Honda brand and Honda dealers. For example, the structure allows for a more optimized search-engine functionality, and the new interface makes it simpler for customers to complete their research activities, thanks to streamlined processes for considering model options and requesting a quote. Signing up for email newsletters is now easier as well.

American Honda Restores a Chevy Pickup

  • 1961 Chevy Apache 10 pickups were used to deliver motorcycles to dealers in early 1960s
  • Hand-painted graphics plus Honda 50 and CB160 motorcycles from the era complete authentic recreation
  • Restoration is part of American Honda 60th anniversary celebration; public display plans include 2019 SEMA Show

Shortly after American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (AHM) first opened for business in 1959, the company purchased a small fleet of Chevy pickups to deliver motorcycles to its fledgling dealers across Southern California. One of these trucks is depicted in an iconic photo circa 1961 in front of AHM’s original office at 4077 Pico Blvd. in Los Angeles. Underscoring their importance during those early days, American Honda restored a truck to authentically match the one in the old photo, helping celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary.

Tapping its U.S. archives and memories of retired Honda associates for details, a 1961 Chevy half-ton pickup was found and carefully renovated, replicating the original paint scheme as used by company salesmen delivering motorcycles to dealers to sell on a consignment basis. These trucks helped American Honda quickly establish a U.S. market foothold, starting in Southern California. By 1965, Honda was the best-selling motorcycle brand in America with amarket share of almost 72 percent.

To ready the special truck for its debut at AHM’s 60th anniversary celebration on June 11, it was given a mild mechanical freshening plus new factory-correct white paint and hand-painted graphics like the originals. Two vintage motorcycles, a Honda 50 and CB160, like those originally carried in the trucks, are placed in the truck bed. The completed package is now on display in the lobby of American Honda’s Torrance, Calif. headquarters.

Plans for public display include the 2019 SEMA Show and other events around the country, as well as classic vehicle gatherings around Southern California. Ultimately, the truck will make its way to the American Honda Collection Hall in Torrance, where it will be staged in front of a replica of the company’s original Los Angeles office.

Delivery Truck Basic Specs:

  • Half-ton chassis
  • 8 ft. bed
  • 283 cu. in. V8 engine
  • 160 HP
  • 3-speed manual transmission

Precious Cargo
The truck’s cargo—in this case two important motorcycles from those early days—were also procured, helping recreate what the package looked like as salesmen traveled around the state to support their dealers.

A red 1965 Honda 50, known in other parts of the world as the Super Cub, occupies the left side of the truck bed. The first big success among the Honda motorcycles sold in the U.S., the “Nifty Thrifty Honda 50” as it was advertised, put Honda on the map in America in the early 1960s—and around the world for that matter.

Easy to ride for almost anyone, the Honda 50 became a surprise hit – immortalized in the “You meet the nicest people on a Honda” marketing campaign. This 1965 model runs and rides perfectly and is ready for another 60 years of enjoyment.

Honda 50 Basic Specs:

  • Pressed steel, step-through monocoque frame
  • 49 cc single-cylinder pushrod engine
  • 3-speed semi-automatic transmission with centrifugal clutch

Also sharing the Chevy truck bed is an original 1965 Honda CB160, one of Honda’s early small displacement sport bikes. The little CB was a big hit for American Honda, following in the footsteps of the larger CB77 “Super Hawk” in moving away from a stamped steel monocoque in favor of a tubular steel frame.

Cycle World magazine dubbed the new bike a “baby Super Hawk” at the time. It was popular with young riders moving up from the Honda 50 or 90 who wanted something that looked like a true motorcycle. This 1965 model was completely restored last year and is in perfect running order.

Honda CB160 Basic Specs:

  • Tubular steel backbone frame
  • 161 cc SOHC vertical twin engine
  • 16.5 HP
  • 4-speed manual transmission
  • Electric starter

2019 Honda Civic Hatchback Bests Toyota Corolla Hatchback in Car and Driver Comparison Test

The 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback has beaten one of its long-time rivals, having been declared the winner by Car and Driver in a head-to-head comparison test against the 2019 Toyota Corolla hatchback.

Article Quote
“While other solid entries make for a highly competitive compact-car space, the choice between the latest Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla hatchbacks is pretty cut and dry. Along with the Civic lineup being broader as a whole, Honda’s hatch remains attractively priced, better packaged, and far more rewarding to operate—with its only real vice being looks that only its mother could love. Don’t count us as overly maternal. The Civic is simply the more satisfying machine for the money.”

2019 Honda Passport Achieves Top NHTSA Overall Safety Rating

  • Every 2019 Honda model evaluated in NHTSA NCAP safety testing has achieved a top 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score
  • 85 percent of Honda vehicles sold now feature Honda Sensing®

The all-new 2019 Honda Passport achieved a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score, the highest available overall safety rating issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as part of its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). With this result, every tested 2019 Honda vehicle has earned an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA1.

The Passport and other Honda models’ crashworthiness is enabled in part by the latest generation of Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, a network of front-frame structures designed to absorb and deflect the energy from a frontal collision.

Beyond crashworthiness, the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies is now standard equipment on the 2019 Passport, Accord, Civic2, Clarity series, Insight, and Pilot and available on every Honda nameplate. Since its introduction on the 2015 CR-V, Honda has sold over 2.1 million vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing® and nearly 85 percent of all new Honda vehicles sold in 2019 are equipped with Honda Sensing®.

Honda Sensing® helps provide greater awareness of driving conditions around the vehicle, in some cases helping drivers maintain lane position and, under certain conditions, slowing or even stopping the vehicle if it detects a potential front collision. Comprising the Honda Sensing® suite are Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Honda Associate Follows Her Passion for the Ocean

Raminta Jautokas helps lead Honda environmental sustainability efforts

From a young age, Raminta Jautokas has had a deep love for the ocean and a passion for cars. These interests led her to the role of corporate sustainability manager at Honda, where she strives to help Honda minimize its environmental footprint by recommending ways to reduce carbon emissions, while helping lead the Honda Marine Science Foundation. Her position enables her to address climate change in a way that helps people both understand the urgency and how to take action.

“Honda cares about the products we make and also really wants associates to be good citizens,” said Jautokas. “At Honda, we are focused on improving the environment and addressing the changes that are coming in the future.”

Jautokas has been able to express her passion for the ocean through her work with the Honda Marine Science Foundation, which helps to restore marine ecosystems and facilitate climate change resilience. For her, this was truly an example of Honda’s belief in The Power of Dreams.

Over her lifetime, Jautokas says she has witnessed the negative impact that pollution and climate change has had on the ocean.

“The ocean covers so much of the earth and it is something we would like to help improve through the Honda Marine Science Foundation,” said Jautokas. “My hope is that the work we are doing now will help future generations enjoy the same things that I have enjoyed.”
