 The ‘Honda New Zealand Approved Manufacturer’ red sticker is the guarantee of quality. Every product that comes with the red sticker has had the engine specifically matched by Honda in partnership with the OEM manufacturer to ensure they are the perfect combination. 

Honda’s matching and testing process takes into account many aspects affecting long term durability and performance including:  

  • Vibration
  • Oil temperature
  • Engine loading
  • Operating RPM
  • Mounting configuration
  • Wire routing

Having the red sticker gives you the peace of mind that your product's engine is not only the perfect match for your product, but it is backed by Honda New Zealand’s team of technical experts. You will get nationwide support and the engines are backed by Honda’s commercial warranty.
