Yes you are correct.

Mugen Motorsports (M-TEC Co., Ltd) (??) is a Japanese company formed in 1973 by Hirotoshi Honda, the son of Honda Motor Company founder Soichiro Honda, and Masao Kimura. Mugen, meaning "Without Limit", or "Unlimited", (hence the commonly placed word "Power" after, denoting "Unlimited Power") is an engine tuner and parts manufacturer closely associated with the Honda Motor Company. Despite the family connections, however, Mugen is not, and has never been, owned by Honda. Things were complicated for some time as Mugen was owned and run by Hirotoshi Honda, who has been the major shareholder in Honda since his father's death in 1991.

Mugen is a performance brand founded by the son of the founder of Honda. Despite the relation between the founders however Mugen is not nor has ever been a Honda only product.

Mugen makes just about anything for a Honda from radiator caps & grills to rear view mirrors & intake systems.

Try checking their website, where they will show a Mugen version of every Honda made.
