- CLEAN OCEANS
Power and performance come at a cost, that being weight. So when it comes to selecting an outboard for your boat, the balance of power and weight becomes an important issue in making the right choice. Until now, powering your boat with a 147kW (200PS) class outboard meant V6 power. That has all changed with Suzuki’s DF200A.
With the DF200A, our goal was to build an outboard that provides all of the power and performance of a 147kW (200PS) class V6 outboard using a lighter, more compact four-cylinder configuration.
The Lean Burn Control System supplies the right fuel and air mixture depending on the navigation conditions.
The timing chain runs in an oil-bath so it never needs lubricating, and is equipped with an automatic hydraulic tensioner so it remains properly adjusted at all times.
It helps protect the engine from water in the fuel using a water detecting fuel filter to alert the operator with both visual and audio warnings when water is present in the fuel.
Intake noise is Resonator suppressed with a resonator, which makes the noise from the outboard quieter.
Multi-stage induction enhances the engines performance by allowing the right amount of air into the cylinder resulting in higher power output during high speed operation.
A large reduction gear ratio leads to powerful torque for quick acceleration and great top-end speed.
The offset drive allows us to make our outboard engines smaller by moving the outboards centre of gravity forward, improving weight distribution, power output, balance and reduces vibration.
The system is controlled by hydraulic pressure from the oil pump and the process happens automatically so all you have to do is enjoy the power and performance.
