Wanted – Best "Original" Honda ATV

30 June 2006

Wanted – Best “Original” Honda ATV

To celebrate 31 years of providing Honda ATVs to farmers, Honda is running a competition to find the best “original” Honda ATV in New Zealand.

Over the years Honda ATVs have evolved to lead their respective markets and produce world-beaters on the farm. New Zealand farmer’s demand high quality and reliable equipment, and Honda ATVs have become an indispensable part of their day.

To reinforce the quality and reliability of Honda ATVs, Honda’s distributor in New Zealand is inviting contestants to enter their oldest original Honda ATV that is still in working condition.

“We are looking for an ATV that is at least 25 years old, and we know that there will be some that are nearer 30 years old still being used,” said Tony Staub, Acting General Manager, “Honda invented the ATV category 31 years ago, so it seems an appropriate way to celebrate that we are still the leaders in the ATV market 31 years later.”

Entrants should visit to submit an image of their Honda ATV with their contact details. All Honda ATV entries will be posted on the Honda website for the duration of the competition, and will be judged based on their original condition and age. “We aren’t looking for a restored model, but one that’s looking like it’s earned its keep” added Staub.

The grand prizewinner of the competition will win a brand new Honda TRX350FM valued at $11,995 inclusive of GST in exchange for their old original Honda ATV.

This best ‘original’ Honda ATV will be displayed in Blue Wing Honda’s head office showroom and will be featured at key events throughout New Zealand.

Five great Honda consolation prizes valued at over $270 are also up for grabs!
