When you're chasing horizons, you want an outboard that delivers optimum performance with ultimate peace of mind. Whether you've got a speedboat or a larger vessel – the BF150, BF135 and BF115 are sure to deliver reliable power wherever you go
Seamless performance and optimum power are what you get from the cutting edge 4-stroke technology in these three Honda outboards. 50 years of Honda automotive engine research and innovation clearly haven’t gone to waste then.
Reliable power wherever you go
Honda BLAST? hole shot technology with PGM-Fi electronic fuel injection delivers instant acceleration to get you up on to the plane as quickly as possible. It does this by using improved accurate ignition timing, which develops more torque at low rpm so you can rapidly reach cruising speed.
Our unique lean-burn control ECOmo system adjusts the fuel to air ratio depending on load and speed to improve your fuel consumption when cruising. When your boat is up on the plane and cruising (in the green area illustrated above ) the PGM-FI system can adjust the air/fuel ratio up to 20% by making the mixture leaner.
The unique Honda VTEC technology (Variable Valve Timing and Lift electronic Control) optimises engine performance and reliability throughout engine rpm range (only on BF100).
The engines are NMEA2000? compliant, which makes it compatible with all other NMEA2000? compliant electronic devices – like navigation and fishfinder systems. Engine data rpm, temperature and fuel consumption can be displayed through multi-functional gauges.
The High Output alternator delivers a solid 55A, which will keep a battery with a 40A charging capacity in top condition; and it'll keep all your on board electronic equipment powered up too.
Honda outboard alert systems monitor critical engine functions including engine temperature, oil pressure, fuel injection and charging, and will alert the boat user to abnormal operating conditions.
NMEA2000? connectivity means you can hook up easily to the Honda multi-functional gauges.
Up to the minute technology combines Honda’s unique three-way cooling system with dual air-intake. And when you add Hole Shot technology BLAST?, it really gets you up and skimming along. On the BF150 we’ve added VTEC?, an advanced racing innovation for more torque and that extra push at higher revs.
We didn’t stop there either. We’ve included ECOmo lean burn control to make these outboards the very best in class for economy and low emissions. Combined with Honda’s world-renowned reputation for reliability, you can be safe in the knowledge that they will never let you down.
Under the hood, a compact and powerful Double Overhead cam engine fits neatly in a slim casing.
Whether you’ve got a speedboat or a larger vessel – choose any one of theses engines and you’ll enjoy optimum power wherever you go. Sit back and listen to the sound of the sea as you cut through the water. From the BF115 and BF135, to the BF150 – these engines are fine-tuned to deliver more horsepower for a large range of different boats. The smooth power this advanced technology provides will certainly keep you smiling as you head out into the blue.
Here are the engine choices available to you.
|BF115||115hp – 4 stroke engine | 4 cylinders – 2,354cm3 | L or X shaft | from 214 kg|
|BF135||135hp – 4 stroke engine | 4 cylinders – 2,354cm3 | L or X shaft | from 214 kg|
|BF150||150hp – 4 stroke engine | 4 cylinders – 2,354cm3 | L or X shaft | from 214 kg|
These engines have a bright silver body with sleek aerodynamic styling and a superior, hydrodynamic-designed gear case for better underwater performance at high speed.
Cloaked in a tough and extremely resilient finish, these engines look great. And in the water, reflecting all the colours around them, they look even better. But they have a job to do – we know good looks aren’t everything – and they more than deliver. They're perfect for a dual installation because their slim design allows them to operate closely together. A high output, belt-driven alternator supplies excellent battery charging – even at trolling speeds. So if your NMEA2000? is connected, you’ll have more than enough power to support it.
The reason is clear: better salt water protection through better anti-corrosion technology and superior servicing with specially trained Honda technicians. Every Honda Marine customer has the support of a domestic or professional warranty, as long as you stick to the service schedule. It will maintain the same value throughout its warranty period. That means your last day of cover is as good as your first. We think that’s pretty unbeatable too.
We first anodise the aluminium casing with our patented ‘Double Seal’ process. Then an epoxy primer is applied before the shimmering silver paint. For further protection from UV rays, we apply a clear resin topcoat to finish. And to be doubly sure, a sacrificial anode is fitted and all connectors are waterproof. Corrosion doesn’t stand a chance.
