The BF150 sets a new standard in innovation. With smooth, stable idling, reduced fuel consumption and incredible top-end power, this engine really is in a league of its own.
BOOSTED LOW SPEED TORQUE (BLAST)
Honda’s revolutionary BLAST™ technology provides strong hole shot performance, getting the hull on the plane quicker. This air/fuel ratio and ignition-timing technology boosts engine torque at low RPM under rapid acceleration conditions. It’s NMEA compatible, meaning all engine data including speed, fuel consumption, cruising distance, etc can be displayed on the GPS screen.
All Honda outboards from the BF40 to BF250 are NMEA2000 compliant, allowing simplified connectivity with NMEA2000 electronic equipment such as sonars/fish finders, chart plotters and other devices via CANbus network technology.
ON DEMAND CHARGING
Honda’s proven ‘on demand’ belt-driven alternator reduces heat build-up and provides superior battery charging capability. 30amp at 1000RPM and 40amp+ above 2000RPM. The Automatic Idle Charge system meets increasing demand from onboard electronic equipment. If electrical demand increases at idle speed, the alternator automatically produces a higher output.
PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION (PGM-FI)
Honda’s renowned Programmed Fuel Injection is controlled by an advanced Engine Control Unit (ECU). Engine sensors precisely control the supply of fuel to the engine, providing easy starting, instantaneous throttle response and superior fuel economy. (BF40– BF250)
DUAL OVERHEAD CAM (DOHC)
A powerful, compact 24-valve DOHC design creates more valve lift to pull in more air for increased horsepower. The low-maintenance design allows easy adjustment of the rocker arms. No multiple shims or trial-and-error adjusting needed.
Trolling Control is available from BF40 – BF150 & BF200-250 (DBW only). Available on selected Honda outboards, engine speed can be controlled in increments of 50RPM from idle speed to 1000RPM/1100RPM (model dependent). A switch required to activate this feature is available through your authorised Honda Marine dealer as an optional accessory. (BF40 – BF150)
