Packed with power, the BF175, BF200 and BF225 incorporate Honda’s revolutionary Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST™) air/fuel ratio and ignition-timing technology, and lean burn control to deliver powerful acceleration together with outstanding fuel economy during cruising (ECOmo). A high-performance gear case further contributes to the V6 engine series’ impressive acceleration and top-end speed.
The BF225 is also equipped with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC™) – the same system Honda uses in its racing technology, sportscars and other motor vehicles. VTEC™ ensures smooth, stable idling, while the increased valve lift at high revs broadens the torque curve and provides incredible top-end power. All three engines are also NMEA2000 compatible, which allows the engines to communicate with onboard electronics to deliver a wide-range of information to head-unit displays.
These engines are twice as quiet as conventional two-stroke outboards. Honda’s Variable Air Intake system controls the volume and velocity of air in the combustion chamber, making cruising as smooth as it is enjoyable. The use of linear rubber mounts, combined with innovative design features that see the flywheel positioned below the powerhead, ensures vibration levels are extremely low.
BOOSTED LOW SPEED TORQUE (BLAST™)
Hole shot and acceleration is significantly improved by MBT trace control (ignition timing). MBT – Minimum advance for Best Torque. Advanced ignition timing develops more horsepower at low revs to get the hull up on the plane quicker. Super-strong acceleration with rapid advancement of the throttle. This patented technology pioneers a new age in four-stroke outboard engines and will be the benchmark for future Honda engine designs.
VTEC™ delivers more power, torque and efficiency at every speed.
At 4500rpm, a special high-lift cam engages to pack more air into the combustion chamber to produce more power. VTEC™ and Dual Stage Induction work to produce a longer, flatter torque profile: the ultimate in fine-tuned performance. (VTEC is available on BF100, BF150, BF225 & BF250 models)
LARGE DISPLACEMENT V6
60° V6 3.5L. A powerful, compact, 24-valve SOHC design. Lacking the bulk and weight of long intake runners and multi-camshafts, the narrow V6 design ensures superior performance and durability based on Honda’s automotive engineering excellence.
POWER INTAKE AIR SYSTEM
The dynamic design feature of the BF250 allows external air to be drawn directly into the engine. The result is a reduction in intake air temperature and an increase in air volume to the engine to deliver outstanding overall performance.
