The Honda and Yamaha are both fine generators. There was a time when they were the only practical choice. These days they are very over priced, as there are several alternatives.
Champion, Kipor, Boliy, Lifan, and several others now make inverter generators with precisely the same specs (including sound level) as the Honda. The difference is that that they are all much less expensive.
For the price of a 2000W Honda, I bought two 2000W Champion inverter generators and the parallel kit to hook them together. I have listened to a lot of the Hondas, and my (uncalibrated) ear can't hear any difference.
