The battery-less electronic fuel injection system also allows these versatile little engines to benefit from Suzuki’s Lean Burn Fuel Control System.

 

Easy Start Recoil

In addition to the fuel injection system helping to deliver quicker and easier starts, the new DF30A also features a very light recoil starter that requires less pull strength, making them much easier to use.

The newly launched DF30A – lightest in its class!

This fuel efficient engine features new generation fuel injection system and Lean Burn.

Suzuki has announced the addition of yet another new lightweight and fuel-efficient outboard motor to its range – the DF30A. These new models punch well above their weight in terms of delivering high-end specification and performance from small portable units.

This new model has been eagerly anticipated by many markets throughout Europe and at just 72 kg it will be the lightest in their respective classes. This is a phenomenal achievement considering the level of specification that this new outboard offers boaters.

Not only are these outboards easy to use, but the fact that they are so compact and lightweight means that they are easy to transport and store as well.

Masahiro Yamamoto, General Manager for Suzuki Marine European Liaison Office, said, “Our engineers brought the development of this new model forward in order to satisfy a clear customer demand. Yet again, they have delivered an outstanding product. These are extremely versatile outboards that benefit from a high level of specification, which will help boaters to optimise performance and fuel economy.”

Features

Battery-less Fuel Injection

The new DF30A is based on a totally new in-line three-cylinder block with a displacement of 490cm3. The engine also benefits from Suzuki’s revolutionary new generation battery-less electronic fuel injection system helping to deliver quicker starts, smoother operation and better acceleration in any conditions.

Easy Start Recoil

In addition to the fuel injection system helping to deliver quicker and easier starts, the new DF30A also features a very light recoil starter that requires less pull strength, making them much easier to use.

Suzuki Lean Burn Control System

The battery-less electronic fuel injection system also allows these versatile little engines to benefit from Suzuki’s Lean Burn Fuel Control System. This intelligent fuel management system predicts fuel needs by monitoring engine performance and operating conditions to deliver a leaner fuel/air mixture to the engine. The result is a remarkable improvement in fuel economy over the outboard’s wide operating rev range. This means that both fuel consumption and emissions are reduced without affecting the superb performance of the engine.

Roller Rocker Arms

The DF30A is the first outboards in their respective classes to utilise a roller with internal bearings on the cam slipper surface for both intake and exhaust valves. The roller changes the contact between the camshaft and rocker arm from a conventional sliding action to a rolling action thus reducing friction in the rocker arm operation.

Offset Crankshaft

By positioning the crankshaft slightly off centre of the cylinder, lateral pressure is reduced against the cylinder wall as the piston moves up and down. The result is a smoother piston movement, which improves operating efficiency.

Direct Intake and Engine Cover Ventilation

These new models also benefit from a newly designed engine cover. However, this is not just for aesthetic purposes as the new cover provides the direct intake system with a smoother, cooler flow of air, which boosts the operating efficiency of the engine. This is made possible by the fact that the rotating flywheel helps vent warm air from the recoil cover, inner air intake and the outside of the engine cover, reducing temperatures in the engine cover. This, together with a newly designed air cleaner, allows much higher power output from a relatively small displacement.

Freshwater Flush Port

Ease of use and maintenance was always at the forefront of the Suzuki engineers’ minds when it came to designing this new model. So to help protect the engine from the damage caused by salt, sand and dirt that can build up in its cooling system, the DF30A is equipped with an easy to access freshwater flush port to make flushing the cooling system as easy and convenient as possible.
