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.
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)
