Suzuki announces even more additions to its outboard line-up – the new lightest-in-class DF100B
Following the recent launch of its brand new flagship outboard, the DF350A, Suzuki has made more announcements of new products.
Introducing the new lightest-in-class DF100B*
Suzuki is known for manufacturing lightweight and compact four stroke outboards and the new DF100B is no different. Suzuki has focused on this important mid-range sector and successfully set out to create the lightest 100ps four stroke outboard available today.
At just 157kg, the new DF100B is 25kg lighter than the existing DF100A and 6kg lighter than the closest competitor model, making it the ideal power unit for a wide range of boats.High output performance is realised in a compact body size with weight of 157kg. It meets customer needs for more compact and higher output outboard model to be fitted on mid-size commercial and leisure boats.
Suzuki has based the new DF100B on a proven design by using the same 1502cc engine unit as the DF70A/80A/90A models. However, it has added even more value to this new model by up-rating the ECM as well as adding a water detection fuel filter. The water detection fuel filter is designed to help protect the engine by alerting the driver when water is present in the fuel.
This new model will be available in ‘Pearl Nebular Black’ or ‘Cool White’ with a large 3D silver ‘S’ emblem to enhance its premium look.
