Transition of Power

Performance and efficiency are the driving forces behind the next generation of marine engines.

Honda
The redesigned BF50 EFI is Honda's latest outboard for marine use. This in-line three-cylinder engine features several Honda-exclusive technologies in addition to electric fuel injection. The Boosted Low Speed Torque system advances ignition timing for quick acceleration. The Lean Burn Control adjusts the air-fuel mixture for maximum fuel efficiency at cruising speeds, a savings of 20 percent, according to the company engineers. Weighing in at a modest 216 pounds, the BF50 EFI has a 22-amp alternator that generates a charge of 17 amps to the battery to keep onboard accessories fully powered.
