HONDA’S BF50 AND BF40 FEATURE EXCLUSIVE, INDUSTRY-LEADING TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE SMOOTH AND STABLE PERFORMANCE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE REV RANGE. HONDA’S ADVANCED FOUR-STROKE TECHNOLOGY MAKES THESE ENGINES TWO OF THE MOST FUEL EFFICIENT, CLEANEST AND QUIETEST OUTBOARDS AVAILABLE. AT IDLE OR LOW SPEEDS, THESE ENGINES ARE BARELY AUDIBLE.
The BF50 and BF40 have been designed to pack maximum power and easy handling into a compact and lightweight design. The BF50 is the lightest 50hp four-stroke available. Both outboards offer power-to-weight ratios to rival two-stroke engines in the same class. These engines feature a unique set of Honda-exclusive technologies to provide increased power across the entire rev range.
Honda’s innovative design positions the crankshaft and flywheel assembly directly above the pivot shaft. This ensures very smooth idling and a reduction in overall vibration for smoother running. These engines are twice as quiet as two-stroke outboards. The BF50 and BF40 are available in both remote control and tiller steer configurations for use in a wide range of boating applications, and deliver seamless performance and optimum power for a smooth and enjoyable boating experience.
