Fuel Efficient with High Output

Honda’s GX series engines are legendary for superior reliability and performance and the GX160 is no exception. Lower noise levels, lower vibration, and lower emissions – without sacrificing power output or performance.

The GX160's Precision Camshaft design offers precise valve timing and optimal valve overlap for better fuel efficiency. It draws on decades of Honda engineering with its OHV design, delivering increased efficiency and optimal power transfer for where you need it.

Easy To Use and Maintain

A ball bearing-supported crankshaft and precision engineered components result in greater stability and lower vibration for you, no matter what the application.

The use of lightweight, noise-reducing materials and a forged steel crankshaft & rigid crankcase results in an exceptionally quiet engine that incorporates a large capacity, multi-chamber exhaust system.

And with a simple throttle control, large fuel tank and automotive type fuel cap, dual oil drains and fills, an easily accessible spark plug and heavy duty recoil starter your engine will be easy to upkeep.
