The BF175 uses Honda’s big 3.6 litre V6 to offer a powerful, reliable engine that is smooth and economical. It features BLAST™ (Boosted low speed torque) for rapid acceleration, ECOmo Lean Burn Control® for exceptional fuel economy at cruise and NMEA which enables all engine and fuel data to be viewed on a GPS screen. Of course, like all Honda outboards, you can rest assured that it’s kind to the environment.
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.
DRIVE BY WIRE OR MECHANICAL RIGGING
The Drive By Wire engine control units offer binnacle-mounted throttle controls for as many as four engines, or side-flush mount for single engines. There is also a mechanical control unit supports up to two engines and a single-helm location as well as a side-mount control box.
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)
LEAN BURN CONTROL
Honda’s Lean Burn Control technology, ECOmo, permits combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel ratio. Sensors precisely measure the air/fuel mixture, ensuring best fuel economy in cruising mode. (BF40 – BF250).
DUAL STAGE INDUCTION
The BF175 features Dual Stage Induction. The result is a simple, compact design that improves overall operation. The competition’s exhaust track goes through the middle of the oil pan, pre-heating the oil. Honda’s dual exhaust headers wrap around the outside of the oil pan, which not only reduces heat build-up, but also increases engine efficiency and performance. The BF175 features a unique 2-Pass Cooling System, which maintains an even temperature on all cylinders. This results in increased cooling efficiency and long-term durability.
