Variable timing digital CDI ignition

GX270-390, V-Twin series

Honda’s Variable Timing Digital CDI ignition allows optimal ignition timing based on engine speed. The result:

  • Excellent starting,
  • High power output,Reduced fuel consumption, and
  • Outstanding emissions performance.

An engine rev limiter is also incorporated to prevent over-revving.

Oil alert

GX series, V-Twin series

Honda’s Oil Alert system helps to prevent engine seizure due to a low oil condition.

The system consists of an oil level sensor inside the crankcase. When the oil reaches a level that is too low for safe operation, the engine warns you or stops automatically.

Automatic mechanical decompression system

All engines

Honda’s automatic mechanical decompression system is designed to give you quicker, easier starts.

This system, which is connected to the camshaft, reduces compression by opening the exhaust valve slightly when the engine is being started. This reduces the amount of force needed to start the engine and improves starting performance.

The system disengages automatically after the engine starts to prevent any power loss during normal operation.
