Honda Australia’s factory off road racing transporter and 50th Anniversary Gold fleet will be on display outside the Crown Casino, in Melbourne until Saturday night, located by the Riverwalk in front of the famous Rosetta restaurant.
This year Honda celebrated 50 years in Australia, marking the milestone with this special one-off Gold fleet that has toured the country throughout the year. The Gold collection includes some of Honda’s current performance products, in striking gold bodywork as the traditional symbol of a 50th Anniversary.
Tony Hinton – General Manager of Honda Motorcycles
“Honda exists to bring joy to people’s lives, we do this through the products we make and through our racing so we are really proud to have the opportunity to show Melbournians this exciting display.”
Underneath the awning of the transporter will be the 2018 Championship winning CBR1000RR Fireblade race bike, the CRF450R Penrite Honda Supercross bike, the 2020 CRF250R and the gold collection, which consists of the following models:
The CBR1000RR Fireblade, which has been a pivitol model in the Honda line up since 1992.
The CRF450L, which is one of the newer models in Honda’s line up and a re-entry into the highly competitive Enduro market.
One of Honda’s best-selling motorcycle models of all time is the CRF50F, taking out the number-one selling model across all manufactures year in and year out.
Then there is the portable powerhouse, EU22i generator. One of the best-selling Honda products across all categories, powering job sites, sporting events, camping trips throughout Australia.
Designed and assembled here in Australia, the HRU19 Buffalo Premium lawnmower plays an important part not only in Honda’s line up but also as a symbol of Australian manufacturing, which is a rare occurrence in modern times.
