HONDA OUTBOARD MOTOR
Reliable, efficient 4-stroke design
World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
Meets NMEA 2000 standards - on-board connectivity
NMEA 2000 protocols allow engine data to be displayed on NMEA 2000 compliant dashboard electronics, like sonar and GPS.
Lean Burn Control® - Superior fuel efficiency
Lean Burn Control® increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on as much as 20% less fuel* than others in its class.
*Based on the EPA's Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.
BLAST® System - improves acceleration at low speeds
Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST®system, advancing the ignition curve aggressively. "Hole Shot" is vastly improved as more horsepower gets the hull up on plane quicker.
Programmed Fuel Injection - Powerful performance
Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air to each cylinder. The result is easy starts and instant throttle response with superior fuel efficiency.
Superior Battery Charging - More usable power
There's always plenty of electric power with the 40 and 50hp. Honda’s innovative technology enables these engines to put out nearly twice as many charging amps as the competition’s.
High Performance Gearcase - gets you going faster
Designed to get you going faster, the BF40 and 50's gearcase reduces drag, greatly reduces hull porpoise and minimizes spray, thus increasing acceleration and top speed.
A longer anti-ventilation plate helps trap water flowing to the propeller to minimize porpoising
A streamlined front and longer bullet reduce drag for enhanced acceleration and fuel efficiency
A front splash plate reduces spray from the hull bottom, maintaining a dry deck above.
3 Position Tiller Handle - comfortable and easy to use
Adjusts to a comfortable angle for easiest hull manueverability.
Engine Alert System - Keeps you informed
Audio and visual cues combine with RPM reduction circuits to alert the operator of overheating, low oil PSI and over-revving to prevent engine damage.
Tiller models feature a new 4-lamp warning system built into the tiller handle, while remote control models deliver alerts via messages through Honda’s multi-function digital gauges or a special indicator built into the unit’s control box.
4-Front Corrosion Protection System - Fights the elements
A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
Because of Honda’s elegant design, the BF40 and 50 are the lightest engines in their class. Perfect for aluminum boats, inflatables, skiffs and flats boats.
Ultra Low 3 Star CARB Emissions
Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board's standards.
