Honda dealerships in the UK will be introducing a new line of parts and accessories that are all close to the heart of Honda tuners in the country. Beginning with eight dealerships around the UK, Honda announced that it will launch the MUGEN Original Parts Programme, a program wherein a number of dealerships will start offering MUGEN parts and accessories for interested customers.
Granted, the initial parts will only cover the current Honda Civic Type R - among the parts include body kits, forged aluminum wheels, performance brake pads, quick shift kits, and sports suspensions - but Honda has made it clear that as time goes by, more and more MUGEN parts and accessories will be available to a wide variety of Honda models.
Despite being a relative newbie in the UK market, Honda is confident that MUGEN products will deliver the same level of enthusiasm and excitement that it has given to Japanese tuners for over 35 years.
Colin Whittamore, chief of MUGEN Europe, said, "We are delighted to be teaming up with some knowledgeable and enthusiastic Honda dealers who will bring MUGEN products to a wider audience."
"Through this program we are looking forward to attracting new and existing customers to experience why MUGEN has been renowned for many years as a world leader in motorsport."
