Fuel-efficiency

Economy Controlled Motor

Along with Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI), most models in Honda’s outboard engine range incorporate lean burn control technology, which allows combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel ratio than stoichiometric air/fuel. An O2 sensor precisely controls the air/fuel mixture for the best fuel economy at cruising speeds. 

Lean burn control

Adjusts the air/fuel mix according to speed and load to maximise efficiency.

Inclusion of Lean Burn Control offers significantly improved fuel consumption over direct injection two-stroke models as well as over competing four-stroke models.

The mode in which Lean Burn Control is used during cruising to achieve higher fuel economy is referred to as ECOmo.

Racing technology

VTEC™ ensures smooth, stable idling with an even further reduction in fuel consumption, while the increased valve lift at high revs broadens the torque curve and provides incredible top-end power.

Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) delivers more power, torque and efficiency at every speed.

At 5200rpm, a high-lift cam engages to pack more air into the combustion chamber to produce more power.

VTEC™ works to produce a longer, flatter torque profile: the ultimate in fine-tuned performance. (VTEC is available on BF100, BF150, BF225 & BF250 models)
