The programme launches with special authorized Mugen parts for the current FN2 Civic Type R, including forged aluminum wheels, performance brake pads, quick shift kits and sports suspension. The range also includes body styling kits for the Civic.
“We are delighted to be teaming up with some knowledgeable and enthusiastic Honda dealers who will bring MUGEN products to a wider audience,” Colin Whittamore, from Mugen Euro, said in a release.
“Although Mugen has been in Japan for over 35 years,” he continued, “we are a relatively new company to the UK market, and outside of motorsport and serious tuning enthusiasts, we may not yet be a household name. Through this programme 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.”
The dealers involved in the programme are listed below:
- Avonvale Honda (Midlands)
- Bristol Honda (South West)
- Inchcape Honda (South East)
- Brayley Honda (Home Counties)
- Two Mills Honda (North West)
- Phoenix Honda (Scotland & Borders)
- Ewens of Cornhill (Highlands)
- Donnelly & Taggart (Northern Ireland)
Customers will be glad to hear that, according to the carmaker, parts requiring fitment by Honda dealers are covered by a 12 month/ 10,000 mile warranty, and other accessories are covered by a standard manufacturing defects warranty.
Original Mugen parts for other Honda models will be introduced over the next 12 months.
