Honda Unveils Brand New Outboard At Launceston’s Agfest

May 5, 2009 - Honda will be showcasing over 70 products from its huge range at this month’s Agfest, to be held in Launceston from May 7-9, including a first for the Australian market.

The new Honda BF60 Marine Outboard Motor will be unveiled to the Australian public for the very first time on Friday, May 8, a sneak peek before its launch in early July.

The long awaited BF60 features an all new wedge shaped design, which characterises Honda's new generation of outboards.

There will also be live ATV demonstrations - using Honda’s latest release models which feature power steering - offering farmers additional functionality and ease in all applications.

Honda’s stand will also include cars, motorcycles, ATVs, outboards, personal watercraft, generators, tillers and brush-cutters.

Honda will be selling a range of merchandise from its ASIMO Collection. ASIMO, short for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility, is the world’s first humanoid robot, and is a milestone in robotics engineering.

All proceeds from the sale of merchandise – including walking dolls, key-rings and stickers to name a few – will be donated to the Launceston City Mission, to help people in need.
