The Honda Fireblade is a good looking motorcycle. But a Golden Honda CBR1000RR is just fantastic. Where you ask? Well, Honda Australia has completed 50 years of business down-under and their celebration is ‘Golden’, quite literally. And that does not only include cars and motorcycles wrapped in gold, they are even offering a generator and a lawn mower!
Their celebration means that they wrapped some of their most popular products in a gold-coloured chrome wrap. Now, Honda products were being imported and distributed around Australia by a variety of private companies since 1950s, things got official when Honda Motor Company in Japan sent Mr. Hidehiko Shiomi to Melbourne to set up a unified, national representation for Honda in Australia.

The products in the Golden Honda line-up are:

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

Honda CRF450L

Honda CRF50F

Honda NSX

Honda Civic Type R

EU22i Generator

Now, for creating these golden products, Honda Australia partnered with Melbourne based specialists, Vinyl Wraps and Graphics to design and produce the insane bodywork. 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 with the prevailing light source.

Matt Czerny, Managing Director of Vinyl Wraps and Graphics said, “Given the thickness of the vinyl wrap and the intricate profiles of the bodywork, this was a complex project across a diverse range of products, but we are thrilled with the results. We worked closely with the Honda Australia team on the design, with the gold theme highlighted with some satin black accents, such as on the badging and wheels of the NSX. And it’s not every day you get to work on a golden generator, everyone who’s seen it wants one.”
