INTRODUCTION

QUALITY TIME ON THE WATER

Honda's brand new BF60, the new generation 'Wedge Shape' design. Lightest in class, best performance in class, and quietest in class.

Weighing just 110kg, the completely new designed water cooled 998cc 3-cylinder SOHC 12 valves engine incorporates electronic fuel injection and Honda’s revolutionary Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST™) for rapid acceleration. In a Honda test in Australia on 2 different boat designs, acceleration to 20 knots was 10% quicker than the 60hp outboards from our 2 major competitors on the same boat.

It features ECOmo Lean Burn Control® for exceptional fuel economy at cruise. Fuel consumption tests showed less than 7 litres per hour used at cruising revs, again up to 25% less fuel than competitors.

As well as all this, it's fitted with NMEA 2000® which allows you to view all your engine and fuel data on a GPS screen.

POWER THRUST

A Power Thrust model (BFP60) is also available – Its large gear case allows the use of a larger diameter and larger blade area propeller, which is particularly useful in big boat/heavy load applications.

BOOSTED LOW SPEED TORQUE

Hole shot and acceleration is improved by MBT trace control (ignition timing). MBT – Minimum advance for Best Torque.

FEATURES

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 is referred to as ECOmo (Economy Controlled Motor).

MULTI-FUNCTION TILLER HANDLE

The BF60’s multi-function tiller handle incorporates a power trim-tilt switch in the throttle grip, so the operator can trim the engine while underway and remain completely focused on the water. Other tiller handle functions including handle height adjustment, throttle friction adjustment and tool-less steering grip friction adjustment.

The BF60 also has a reversible shift lever, which can be mounted on the left or right side. Available as special order.

  • Power Thrust version is available.
  • Powerful 17amp multi-pole AC generator (22amp on Power Thrust model).
  • 4-Front Corrosion Protection. A patented, ‘double-sealed’ multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
  • NMEA2000® compliant
