The BF10 has been designed for boaters who want dependable performance in a compact engine and is perfectly suited for use with sailboats, inflatables and small aluminium boats. Offering very low fuel consumption and maintenance costs, while still delivering optimum performance and durability. At 222cc, it has the largest displacement in its class, and Honda’s Power Thrust Propeller – a four-blade propeller design (optional) – creates significantly more thrust in both forward and reverse gears. If you want dependable performance in a portable package, then the BF10 is the engine for you. At just 42kg, the BF10 is one of the lightest four-stroke engines in its class. This allows convenient transport and easy mounting to any hull. A helpful, foldaway carry handle is situated at the exact top/bottom balance point of the engine, so that the engine carries easily 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.
POWER TILT AND GAS ASSIST TILT
The BF10 is equipped with Power Tilt and Gas Assist Tilt variations – perfect for effortless engine tilt operations and shallow-water running. Cruising is improved and more comfortable with Honda’s unique pendulum-motion mounting system. This system is specially designed to reduce vibration and maximise user comfort. A convenient Forward Mount Shift Lever allows fingertip shifting, while a Twist Grip Throttle and Tensioner ensures superior throttle friction, minimising driver fatigue.
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’a 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 BF10 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.
