The Honda BF50 outboard is an all new ground up creation that showcases the very latest direction in outboard motor design. It features BLAST™ (Boosted low speed torque) for rapid acceleration, ECOmo Lean Burn Control® for exceptional fuel economy at cruise and NMEA which enables all engine and fuel data to be viewed on a GPS screen.
The Honda BF50 does away with the need for an auxiliary motor for trolling, offering quiet, smoke free idling and low speed operation. The future is here!
Weighing just 110kg, the completely new designed water cooled 998cc 3-cylinder SOHC 12 valve engine incorporates electronic fuel injection and Honda’s revolutionary Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST™) for rapid acceleration. During a test in Australia, on two different boat designs, acceleration to 20 knots was 10% quicker than 60 horsepower outboards from our two major competitors on the same boat.
It features ECOmo Lean Burn Control® for exceptional fuel economy at cruise. Fuel consumption tests showed less than 7 litres per hour used at cruising revs – again up to 25% less fuel than competitors.
As well as all this, it’s fitted with NMEA 2000® which allows you to view all your engine and fuel data on a GPS screen.
A Power Thrust model (BFP60) is also available – its large gear case allows the use of a larger diameter and larger blade area propeller, which is particularly useful in big boat/heavy load applications.
BOOSTED LOW SPEED TORQUE
Hole shot and acceleration is improved by MBT trace control (ignition timing). MBT – Minimum advance for Best Torque.
