Suzuki gives anglers yet another choice in small block four-stroke technology with the introduction of the DF100 for this model year. The in-line four-cylinder Dual Overhead Cam power head has four valves per cylinder. The digital electronic fuel-injection system optimizes performance through a network of computerized sensors. A 2.59:1 drive ratio lets the engine turn larger, higher-pitch propellers for a combination of low-end torque and top-end speed. Tipping the scales at just over 400 pounds, the DF100 is designed for small center consoles and bay boats. It is available in both 20- and 25-inch shafts.
