I regret that I have not had more time to work on this site recently. I am looking to sell the domain name to someone who will be able to utilize it better than I have. Click here to contact me.

Honda Beat Information

Your BEST BET for getting more information about Honda Beats (or to find cars for sale) is to visit the UK Honda Beat Club.

They have an extensive bulletin board, information pages and a listing of cars for sale.

RUMORS! 4/15/09 - could a NEW Beat be on the horizon for 2011??? Temple of VTEC says maybe... and so does Auto Blog

The Beat began production in May 1991, and finished production in February 1996. The total number of cars produced was around 33,600. Most of the production (around 2/3) occurred in the first year, and then production and sales reduced drastically.

Many Japanese domestic-only models do not have a full 17 digit International VIN (Vehicle Identification Number.) The Beat only has a chassis number (PP1 1000001~) , an engine number (E07A 6000001~) and a gearbox number (ZK 5000001~).

There were two different models of Beat (PP1-100 and PP1-110), although there were a couple of different limited edition versions as well.   Variations on the first model were just cosmetic updates. Only the second model had any real mechanical differences. All cars were offered with the option of a drivers-side airbag.

First model (chassis numbers PP1-100)
Standard model.
The standard car came four colours: White, Yellow, Red, Silver.

Version F: This was a limited run of 800 cars which came in a special Metallic Green colour. It also came standard with white factory alloy wheels.

Version C: This was a limited run of 500 cars which came in a special Metallic Blue colour. It also came standard with white factory alloy wheels.

Version Z: This was a real re-jigging of the car mechanically, a lot of parts were changed/upgraded. It had options of ABS (Anti-lock braking) and LSD (Limited Slip Differential). It also had black instrument dials instead of the usual white, and came standard with silver alloy wheels. The Version Z was only available in either Silver or a Dark Green colour (non-metallic) similar to British Racing Green.

  • Air Conditioning
