Lightweight and well-balanced, with an ergonomic carry handle, the compact BF2.3 can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.
We've packed so much into a small engine.
The BF2.3 engine is the lightest in its class and is so easy to pick up. It's easy to carry too, with an ergonomic handle positioned at the exact point of balance to allow you to walk normally without feeling any strain.
The engines are equipped with Honda’s decompression mechanism, which requires the minimum effort on the recoil to start the engine.
The BF2.3 uses Air cooled technology which reduces maintenance costs (no water pump to replace)
A centrifugal clutch allows the engine to idle without turning the propeller blades. When you want to go, just roll on the power, and the clutch will engage and drive the propeller.
The BF2.3 is very light and easy to tilt up out of the water. This prevents damage to the propeller blades when you find yourself in the shallows or at the water’s edge. A spring design allows it to be locked down safely when you’re on the move again.
The engine is equipped with an internal fuel tank of 1.1l, offering around 60 minutes of running time at full speed.
To change direction quickly, the little BF2.3 has a quick swiveling action; perfect for reversing with no gear changing. Just swing the tiller handle through 180˚ and the boat goes backwards. You'll be able to manoeuvre around a harbour’s tight spots with ease.
Not only does the BF2.3 pack enough punch to push a boat out to sea, it's light enough to be carried back to the car! Thanks to the ergonomic carry handle fitted to each engine, the BF2.3 can be taken virtually anywhere. Of course, this unit boasts all the benefits of Honda's advanced 4-stroke technology, which is second to none. You will be surprised by its ability to power your inflatable dinghy or barque with ease.
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.
The Honda 4-stroke engine starts well every time, even from cold.
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.
The leader in 4-stroke engine technology for 50 years.
