Honda launches Worlds first Motorcycle equipped with flexible-fuel technology in Brazil
Honda will begin sales of Flex Fuel Motorcycle CG150 TITAN MIX in Brazil in mid-March 2009. Honda Flex Fuel Motorcycle CG150 TITAN MIX is equipped with a Mix Fuel Injection System, a flexible-fuel technology developed independently by Honda. This is the first motorcycle in the world to be equipped with flexible-fuel technology. With adoption of newly developed fuel supply and fuel injection control systems, Honda’s Mix Fuel Injection System enables flexible mixture of environmentally-responsible bio-ethanol and gasoline fuels. Adoption of this technology helps reduce CO2 emissions, while reducing fuel costs for consumers as well.
In Brazil, penetration of flexible-fuel technology is well advanced, and approximately 90% of new automobiles sold in Brazil are equipped with flexible-fuel technology. However, CG150 TITAN MIX will be the first motorcycle model to be equipped with flexible-fuel technology. Honda is planning to sell 200,000 units annually.
