ALPHARETTA, Ga., August 29, 2012 – Honda Power Equipment is launching six all-new designs as part of its official generator Collegiate Skinit Kit program. The Skinit Kit is an innovative accessory available exclusively for the popular Honda EU2000i Super Quiet Series portable generator.  Vibrant skins from the University of California at Los Angeles, the University of Virginia, the University of South Carolina, Texas Christian University, Boise State University and the University of Wisconsin now are offered as part of the program, allowing for more college football supporters to customize their Honda generators when tailgating, camping or for any occasion calling for reliable, portable power.

The Collegiate Skinit Kit consists of a line of thin, flexible generator covers, each imprinted with official team logos and graphics from one of 42 different college football teams.  The kits are produced by Skinit, a leader in on-demand personalization technology, utilizing its proprietary, high quality 3M vinyl printed with state-of-the-art digital presses for vibrant photo quality graphics.

The Skinit Kits are designed to fit all EU2000i models, with the choke, check oil, and on/off label integrated into the design.  The skins, which do not interfere with the safety warning or serial number label, are easy to apply and remove, leaving no residue.  They are available at Honda Power Equipment dealers nationwide or by visiting

“Having these new universities represented in our EU2000i generator Skinit Kit program is an innovative way for Honda Power Equipment to give more college football fans what they want,” said Ed Harris, national sales manager, Honda Power Equipment.  “Loyal college football enthusiasts love to show their team spirit whenever possible, even while using their Honda EU2000i generators.”

The Honda EU2000i Super Quiet Series generator is an inverter-equipped, portable, lightweight model that features a totally enclosed body resulting in noticeably quieter performance.  It provides up to 9.6 hours of running time on just 1.1 gallon of gasoline, and with a dry weight of just 46 pounds, it can be easily carried and conveniently stored in small compartments. What’s more, it can simultaneously power a computer, TV, coffee pot, and refrigerator.

Honda Super Quiet EU models were the original generators to offer parallel capability:  working in tandem, two lightweight Honda EU2000i models can deliver their full, combined power, easily able to start and run an RV air conditioner along with other appliances.  In this scenario, each generator could be customized with a different Collegiate Skinit Kit.The Honda Collegiate Skinit Kits for the EU2000i are available for the following 42 teams:
