Suzuki launches a trio of class-leading portable outboards
Suzuki launched its brand new DF6A, DF5A, DF4A light weight and portable outboards with an exclusive preview at the Düsseldorf Boat Show in January 2016. The new DF6A will be available in South Africa in a short and long shaft from May 2016 at a suggested retail price of R 20 000 and R 21 000 respectively. The key user benefits of these new models are that they are lightweight, easy and quiet to use, incredibly reliable plus they also boast a new design and unique colour. With a compact design and weighing in at only 23.5kg these new outboards are sure
to be popular with many boaters.
Lightweight and compact
Compact dimensions and stylish design make this outboard genuinely portable and easy to install and operate.
The new fuel and lubricating systems give you the added convenience of being able to store the outboard either on its port or starboard sides or front, without worrying about leakage or flooding.
Easy after-storage start
This gravity fed fuel supply means you can start the engine without having to prime the fuel line, even after long-term storage.
Ergonomically designed carry handles allow for easy handling, transportation and use.
Engine noise on large boats can make it difficult to relax. Suzuki outboards run unbelievably quiet.
The design allows the outboard to be removed from the boat and placed on any of its 3 sides for storage only on the DF6 model.
- Can be stored anywhere.
- There is no need to worry about the loading space or method
The integral overhead fuel tank and one-way valve delivers fuel supply using gravity.
- Engine can start without having to open the engine cover, even after long-term storage.
