Honda Gearing Up For The Dowerin Field Days

18 August 2009 - Honda is gearing up for the Dowerin Field Days, and will be using the event to unveil their brand new V-Twin engine to the West Australian public.

"This will be the first week that the new V-Twin will be available for viewing in Australia, and we thought the Dowerin Field Days would be the perfect event to showcase it, as it’s the biggest event of its kind in the state," said Peter Singleton, Honda’s Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Manager.

"We’ve got a lot of quality manufacturers using Honda engines in WA, as people have probably seen through our recent Green and Gold campaign with David Boon, and we wanted them to be amongst the first to view the new V-Twin," said Mr Singleton.

The world’s largest engine manufacturer will be well represented at the field days, and several of Honda’s Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) will collaborating with Honda Dealers to put on some huge displays and provide a sneak peek of the new V-Twin engine.

Some of the country’s premier OEM’s including: Westair Compressors, Pumps Australia and Commander Ag-Quip, will be displaying their Honda Powered equipment, as well as Honda Dealers Eastern Hills Saws & Mowers and the Honda Shop - one of the largest Honda Dealerships in the country.

According to Michael Bartier, Assistant General Manager from the Honda Shop, the upcoming event is shaping up to be the biggest in his Dealership’s almost 30 year history with the field days.

"We’re really looking forward to this event; we’ve got a premier site and will be bringing a huge display down. Everything you can think of, we’ve got it," said Mr Bartier.

"As well as our Honda Power Equipment products we’ll be showcasing our Motorcycle range and have even lent the Dowerin Field Day Committee a few ATV’s to get around on, so you’ll be seeing them have a ball."

"We’ll have our Aquatrax and Marine products, including boats from Haines Hunter and Quintrex, and of course the new BF60 outboard engine. We’ve also got the Marlin Boat Sales stand set up opposite us, who are Honda Marine’s WA Dealer of the Year."

The 2009 Dowerin Field Days will be held on August 26 and 27, and visitors can see Honda’s brand new V-Twin engine at the Commander Ag-Quip site.
