With a high output 350cc displacement and long-stroke design, the BF20 is a top performer, providing optimum torque at any speed. Programmed Ignition (PGM-IG) also accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire rev range for optimum overall operation. A 12amp (electric start) alternator also ensures excellent charging power to keep batteries in top condition. Thanks to its incredibly lightweight design, the BF20 is also very easy to transport, a foldaway handle positioned at the exact balance point of the engine makes it easy to carry in a level position.
REVERSE EXHAUST RELIEF
Exhaust gases are diverted away from the propeller while in reverse, allowing the propeller to run in clean water.
ENGINE PROTECTION AND SECURITY
Alert systems monitor critical engine functions including engine temperature, oil pressure, fuel injection and charging. This notifies the boat operator of any abnormal conditions. An audible buzzer and warning light will be activated if a fault is detected (BF40 – BF250), whereas on non PGM-FI outboards (remote control models), the alert system will monitor engine temperature and oil pressure. (BF10 – BF30)
CORROSION PROTECTION SYSTEM
Every Honda engine undergoes an exclusive four-stage coating process for protection against harsh conditions like ultraviolet rays and saltwater exposure. A double-sealed anodising treatment is applied to the aluminium alloy base, followed by the epoxy primer undercoat, acrylic aqua marine silver paint, and finally, the acrylic resin topcoat.
EASY ONE HAND STARTING
Working together, a built-in decompression release and Digital CDI system set the ignition timing during start-up. Just 60% of the normal effort is required to pull-start the engine by hand! Electric-start models offer Auto Start Enrichment which automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for an even quicker, easy starting and warm-up operation. The PGM Ignition (where a reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire rpm range) provides optimum overall operation. There is also a Power Thrust Option Available too.
As with all Honda outboards, Honda’s portable range boasts all the benefits of Honda’s advanced four-stroke technology, like unparalleled easy starting, quiet operation and low emissions. The range offers the lowest in fuel consumption and maintenance costs, in addition to the performance and durability for which Honda is renowned.
FRESH WATER FLUSHING
The Fresh Water Flush point flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.
LONGER TILLER HANDLE AND UP-FRONT TILLER CONTROLS
The BF20 has a convenient longer tiller handle for increased control and reduced steering effort. The extended handle is made of a new lightweight composite for increased durability and weight reduction. The convenient Forward Mount Shift Lever allows fingertip shifting. Twist Grip Throttle and Tensioner allows for superior throttle friction control, minimising driver fatigue.
