The BFP60, BF60 are the lightest and most compact engines in their class. This outstanding range of 4-stroke engines feature a host of innovative Honda technology
Features that turn a cruise into a journey.
The engine’s optional Trolling Control has been designed to make fine speed adjustments of 50rpm – between 750rpm and 1000rpm – via a single switch operation. It comes in handy when intricate control is needed for fishing at sea, on a river or a lake.
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 ) you'll be saving up to 20% of your fuel by making the mixture leaner – saving you money.
The engine is NMEA2000? compliant, which makes it compatible with all other compliant electronic devices – like navigation and fishfinder systems. Engine data like rpm, temperature and fuel consumption can be displayed through multi-functional gauges.
The High Output alternator delivers a solid 22 amps to keep a battery, with a 17 amp charging capacity, in top condition and all your onboard electronic equipment powered up too.
The gear case is extremely hydrodynamic and super sleek. The gears within are machined to fine tolerances, reducing friction and contributing to the overall performance and superb fuel economy at high speeds.
Honda BLASTTM 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.
Especially when you have an engine that delivers, like the BF60. It's full of top class features that push out impressive fuel economy and performance – everything you expect from a Honda. We also offer the BF60 as a BFP60 power thrust model. This gives you two choices of streamlined gear case design, so you can choose the kind of acceleration best for your needs.
The BF60 and BFP60 are lean machines – perfect for a medium-sized boat. These compact 998cc three-cylinder engines come with brilliant innovations.
An outstanding feature on both the BF60 and BFP60 is Honda’s renowned PGM-FI. It gives you ultra-responsive performance and better fuel economy by precisely controlling the supply of fuel to the engine. But that’s just the start...
The unique design of Honda marine engines is unmistakeable. And that’s before you start them up and power over the open water – that’s where the real magic begins.
Both engines have the option of a multi-function tiller handle. As well as throttle and optional Trolling Control, it has an LED panel that displays the engine management status, oil pressure, battery charging and overheating. It also has an audible warning should anything happen while your eyes are elsewhere. It’s unlikely, but if it does – you’ll have time to act.
The optional tiller handle has a reversible shift lever, three-stage handle-height and throttle friction adjustment to take the strain off your arms during long journeys.
Precise control at slow speed is just as important as high-speed handling, especially if you're fishing at sea, on a river or lake. The optional Trolling Control will hold the power back and let it out in increments of 50 rpm – making it ideal for fishing.
There are two engine choices available to you.
|BF60||A 60 horsepower 4-stroke three-cylinder engine with short or long shaft, 2.07:1 gear ratio and electric start.|
|BFP60||A 60 horsepower 4-stroke three-cylinder engine with short or long shaft, 2.33:1 gear ratio and electric start.|
Engine reliability is essential if you live and work on the water.
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.
