Unique Honda ACG
StarterNEW: sparks the #AQuietRevolution
on Indian roads. It startsthe engine jolt freevia the same AC generator used to generate electricity and
charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional
starter motor, thus there is no gear meshing noises.
Two new mechanical features lead to
engine start without applying much force – the first being efficient utlisation of decompression with slightly opened
exhaust values (at the beginning of compression stroke) followed by the Swing Back feature which rotates the
engine in a slightly opposite direction which allows the piston to take a ‘running start’,making it easier to start the engine with a small
amount of power.
The Honda ACG starter also ensures for comfortable
frequent operation of Idling Stop System NEW – an another First for Honda models in India.The Idling Stop
System automatically switches the engine off at traffic light and other brief
stops, eliminatingunnecessary fuelconsumption and resulting in lesser emission.
Engine can easily be re-started with simple twist of the throttle.
: The name given by Honda to a proprietary digital electronic
fuel injection system for internal combustion engines which injects the right
amount of fuel in cylinder based onspecific
engine data, available since the early 1980s.Direct fuel injection into the
combustion chamber through nozzle generates more refined power delivery, better
response to cold start.
Improvised tumble flow &compact
combustion chamber: Honda developed the world’s first
tumble flow technology through integrated die-casting process. It produces
tumble flow by optimizing inlet port shape and using reverse flow phenomenon,
without adding additional components leading to combustion improvisation
together with compact combustion chamber.
