Comfort & manoeuvrability

at the top level the BF2.3 benefits from the latest technology that accurately controls ignition timing, which ensures easy start even in the coldest conditions. The outboard comes with a centrifugal clutch that maintains a smooth idle and when advanced, automatically engages the propeller above idle speed. It's like having a neutral position, and it's very useful.

The engine provides excellent manoeuvrability in tight areas. There's more reverse thrust, meaning you can get to where you want to go, faster.

Clear thinking

Believe in what you do.

The Honda way

Soichiro Honda had a simple idea to make outboard engines cleaner, quieter and friendlier towards aquatic life – he made them 4-stroke. It was a solution that made Honda pioneers in marine engine technology, but more importantly it made us more responsible towards this fragile environmental resource.
