Honda GCV200 Engine - Specifications

The all-new Honda GCV200 engine, a powerful addition to the Honda GC Series, is designed specifically for premium, residential power equipment applications such as the newly redesigned HRX Series lawn mowers. The GCV200 delivers more power and more torque—10 percent more as compared to the GCV190 engine it replaces. Innovative Honda design features, including an improved combustion chamber shape, advanced auto choke design, and easier fuel and oil filling, make the GCV200 engine convenient to use and operate. The new engine is more streamlined and more compact than other engines in the same class, while the configuration of the Honda GCV200 incorporates the CycloFlow design, which strengthens turbulence in the cylinder and provides more stable combustion. The result is greater resistance to lower quality fuel and ease of starting, along with a smoother idle.

*The SAE J1349 standard measures net horsepower with the manufacturer’s production muffler and air cleaner in place. Net horsepower more closely correlates with the power the operator will experience when using a Honda engine powered product. The power rating of the engines indicated in this document measures the net power output at 3600 rpm (7000 rpm for model GXH50, GXV50, GX25 and GX35) and net torque at 2500 rpm, as tested on a production engine. Mass production engines may vary from this value. Actual power output for the engine installed in the final machine will vary depending on numerous factors, including the operation speed of the engine in application, environmental conditions, maintenance and other variables.

**Total height varies depending on model type; the height indicated here is based on the N3 type crankshaft.
