honda australia partnered with melbourne-based specialists vinyl wraps and graphics to conceptualise and produce the striking gold bodywork on each of the products. a gold chrome film was laminated with a clear satin film to help disperse reflections, resulting in a unique and refined finish that changes tone under the light.

the one-0ff range of gold models also features the australia-assembled HRU19 buffalo premium lawnmower, the EU22i leisure generator, and the CRF50F kids dirt bike. the gold makeovers mark half a century since the company was established locally on february 4, 1969.
