New Zealand Fishing World - - Cool Stuff -

Honda is cel­e­brat­ing the 50th an­niver­sary of the very first Honda four-stroke out­board en­gine, the GB30. It rep­re­sented the no­ble am­bi­tions of Honda’s founder, Soichiro Honda, to man­u­fac­ture only four-stroke engines for the ben­e­fit of the en­vi­ron­ment and gen­er­a­tions to come. “Honda has to make en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly prod­ucts; there­fore we must build four-stroke out­boards,” Mr. Honda said in 1964.
