2-STROKE OUTBOARDS – BUILT WITH THE PROFESSIONAL IN MIND
Suzuki South Africa currently offers 15Hp and 40Hp which offer the consumer easy operation and low maintenance needs. The strength of this range is Suzuki’s PEI ignition system providing a powerful spark and sure starting. The loop charging allows the engine to breathe efficiently for maximum combustion and performance. The die-cast stainless water pump housings ensure that pumps will stay intact if overheating should occur. Similar to the rest of the Suzuki range, these 2-strokes are also equipped with the shallow water drive system that allows the operator to simply adjust the engine’s trim position to one of two high settings when the water gets shallow.
Designed and built with the professional in mind, the Suzuki 2-stroke outboards deliver the power and performance required by intensive use; day in, day out and often under grueling conditions. The Suzuki 2-strokes are ideal, not only for the most demanding of their equipment but for anyone looking for an economical and trustworthy solution.
Outboard engines have come a long way since Suzuki first entered the market with the D55(5.5hp, 2-stroke) in 1965, applying the company’s motorized vehicle expertise to the marine sector. This 6hp model, together with a 4hp model, both aimed at the domestic fishing market, and constituted the range for the first few years. From 1970, further models were quickly introduced to create the “DT” 2-stroke range. The first ever oil-injected 2-stroke was launched in 1980. This was the very popular and successful DT85. A range of oil injected motors up to 140hp was introduced in 1981. The outboard range now ran from 2 to 140hp.
The first prestigious National Marine Manufacturer’s Association (NMMA) innovation award “Most Innovative products” was presented in 1987 for the Exante 200, a sophisticated 200hp 2.7 litre V6 2-stroke- the first outboard to offer a voice activated warning system. Suzuki South Africa started to import the 2-stroke range in the mid-seventies and continued to do so with success.
