Honda’s brand new BF60 four-stroke EFI outboard engine expands the premium product range available to Australian boaters. Slotting in between the widely-acclaimed BF40/50 and BF75/90, the new BF60 combines exclusive Honda technologies in a light-weight package that delivers outstanding performance.
Weighing 110kg, the newly-designed, water-cooled, 998cm³ three-cylinder engine incorporates electronic fuel injection, Honda’s revolutionary Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST™) air/fuel ratio and ignition-timing technology, and lean burn control to deliver powerful start-up and acceleration together with outstanding fuel economy during cruising (ECOmo). A high-performance gear case further contributes to the BF60’s impressive acceleration and top-end speed.
Along with its powerful 17amp alternator, the BF60 is also NMEA2000 compatible, which allows the engine to communicate with onboard electronics to deliver a wide range of information to head-unit displays.
Sporting a futuristic new look that reflects its superior performance, the BF60 is available in remote control (including a Power Thrust model) and tiller versions. Among its many features, the multi-function tiller handle incorporates a power trim-tilt switch which is conveniently located in the throttle grip, so the engine can be easily trimmed while under way, allowing the operator to remain completely focused on the water.
The smooth and quiet-running BF60 exceeds the latest US EPA emissions standards — the most stringent in the world; — 2008 CARB standards; and domestic Japanese voluntary regulations.
The new BF60 will also achieve the Outboard Engine Distributors Association’s (OEDA) three-star rating for ultra-low emissions.
Covered by Honda’s five-year warranty, the new BF60 is now available through Honda’s national marine dealer network.
