Features

Features

  • RELIABLE, EFFICIENT 4-STROKE DESIGN: World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
  • MORE POWER - WITHOUT SACRIFICING PORTABILITY: With 15% more horsepower over its predecessor, this ultra light weight powerhouse produces surprising speed and maneuverability.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMPACT: The BF2.3 is incredibly light and easy to transport. Weighing less than 30 pounds, it's the ideal engine for dinghys, car-toppers and other types of small boats.
  • PRECISE THROTTLE CONTROL: A twist grip throttle allows for precise throttle control. The throttle tensioner minimizes driver fatigue.
  • FORCED AIR COOLED ENGINE - NO WATER PUMP WORRIES: The air-cooled block eliminates concern over clogged water pumps and debris being sucked into the powerhead, as well as reducing maintenance.
  • ULTRA LOW 3 STAR CARB EMISSIONS - ENVIRONMENTALLY CONCIOUS TECHNOLOGY: Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board's standards.
  • TRUE 5 WARRANTY - UNMATCHED PEACE OF MIND: Honda's True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the first day as it is on the last.
  • EASY STARTING, MAINTENANCE FREE TRANSISTOR IGNITION: Maintenance-free, high-energy output for quick and easy starts.
  • EASY TO CARRY AND INSTALL: A front mounted carrying handle provides superior portability and ease of installation.
  • 360° SWIVEL STEERING - ADDED MANUEVERABILITY: Provides excellent maneuverability in tight areas as well as full thrust in reverse (at 180°).
  • CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH - BETTER PERFORMANCE: The centrifugal clutch maintains a smooth idle and when advanced, automatically engages the prop above idle speed. It's like having a neutral position.
  • CONVENIENT FOLD DOWN TILLER: The BF2.3's tiller folds up or down for easy stowing.
  • 4-FRONT CORROSION PROTECTION SYSTEM - FIGHTS THE ELEMENTS: A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes, stainless steel technology, and waterproof connectors enhance corrosion protection.
  • INTERNAL FUEL TANK - EASIER PORTABILITY: With 12% more capacity over its predecessor, the BF2.3 now runs up to 60 minutes at full throttle on a tank of fuel. The internal tank facilitates easy removal and portability as a single unit.
  • EASY MAINTENANCE: Convenient oil fill and drain.
  • STEERING FRICTION ADJUSTMENT: Allows you to adjust steering tension for ease in maneuverability.
  • ADJUSTABLE TRIM: Four manual settings ensure proper trim angle for maximum performance.
  • SHALLOW WATER DRIVE: Allows you to run in shallow water and greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.
  • PROPELLER INCLUDED: A shock resistant plastic propeller comes standard.
  • CARBURETOR DRAIN SCREW FOR EASY STORAGE PREP: Allows quick and easy draining of the carburetor's float bowl for extended storage periods.
  • DUAL LOCKABLE TRANSOM CLAMPS: Provides extra security when mounted to the transom.
  • SHEER AND COTTER PIN KEEPER: The self-contained keeper stores two extra sets of cotter and sheer pins close at hand, so you'll be prepared if and when you need them.
  • 15 AND 20 INCH CONFIGURATIONS: Available in 15" or 20" configurations to meet your specific application.
