V-Twin: the new Honda engine

The iGX700 and iGX800 monoblock engines will be marketed starting next autumn, expanding the family of Honda V-Twin engines. Both models - says the manufacturer - are available with horizontal and vertical shafts, and are noteworthy for the innovative electronic injection system. This is the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) technology that does not require the use of a conventional carburettor. Thanks to this constructive solution, the two engines are able to offer additional functionalities to the most complex professional applications, especially on construction and earthmoving machines (joint cutters, smoothing machines, vibrating compacting rollers, to name a few), but also on professional garden machines (tractors and plant residue shredders, for example).

Like the other engines in the V-Twin range, the two newcomers stand out for their compact design, which facilitates OEM assembly operations. Another jewel in the crown of iGX700 and iGX800 is the ECU (Electronic Control Unit), responsible for “managing” the key aspects of the engine, while the STR (Self Tuning Regulator) speed regulator ensures the stability of the engine revs, even in variable load conditions. However, the new V-Twin models also feature other innovative solutions, starting from the Electronic Fuel Injection (reduces emissions and fuel consumption) and the automatic choke for a prompt and safe start in every condition of use. Lastly, the engines would not be complete without an instrumental diagnostic system, which identifies any anomalies and which, thanks to targeted interventions, allows machine downtimes to be significantly reduced. Of course, the two new Honda models support the CAN bus advanced communication and remote control system.
