In my world that would be a property tag number.

Perhaps the last 6 digits of the VIN. It's for sure that Mr. Honda didn't put them there.

Over in my neck of the woods I would call it an asset tag and likely the last six of VIN.

Not sure either but wanted to take a minute and say that your friend obviously has excellent taste regarding his color choice. Of course I am slightly biased as you can see from my avatar pic :D

It seems the number is added with a photoshop like computer program, when you zoom-in you can see the color and contrast difference.

Could be the last six digits of the original owner's driver license number, for theft ID, just a thought.
