At 103 pounds, Honda Marine's BF15 and BF20 weigh less than some 9.9 horsepower motors on the market. The engines' long-stroke design and 350cc displacement provide optimum torque throughout the rpm range. Additionally, an integrated carrying handle and programmed ignition are offered as standard features.
Both are also available with Power Thrust design for enhanced performance and maneuverability. A low 2.33:1 gear ratio and 4-blade Power Thrust propeller combine to produce more thrust in forward and reverse, while an exhaust outlet above the anti-ventilation plate allows the propeller to run in undisturbed water while in reverse, resulting in greater thrust.
