HondaJet updated to carry more, fly longer, and look better doing it
Cars are the most frequently seen tip of the Honda iceberg. Jets are on the resume too, and the Japanese company's aircraft manufacturing division announced that its only model can now fly longer or carry more weight while looking better.
One of the major enhancements that make the HondaJet's latest evolution worthy of the Elite S nameplate is a higher payload. Its maximum takeoff weight has increased by 200 pounds, meaning operators can load more fuel for up to 138 miles of additional flight range (roughly the distance between Philadelphia and Washington, DC) or carry more weight the same distance as before. How the payload was increased has not yet been explained.
Whether pilots are prioritizing range or cargo, Honda finds that the Elite S is easier to fly than existing variants of the jet, thanks in part to new avionics features that replace voice commands with text-based messages for clearer, more efficient communication. The company's recently launched Advanced Steering Augmentation System (ASAS) also reduces the pilot's workload and makes flying safer in a variety of weather conditions.
Finally, customers can choose from three new paint colors called Gunmetal, Deep Sea Blue and Luxe Gold. All three are pictured above. Alternatively, buyers can request an individual, one-off color scheme.
The HondaJet Elite S is now available for order. The price has not yet been announced, but the existing Elite model starts at around $ 5 million, a sum that makes it one of the more affordable models in its segment. How much you pay for a HondaJet largely depends on the options you choose; Customized paintwork and lavish interiors are available to customers with a sufficiently thick wallet, and standalone options include a Bongiovi sound system.
If that's more than 1,000 times your budget, Honda's mountain-ready Trail 125 motorcycle starts at $ 4,089.
