Suzuki leads the way with world’s first innovation in the marine industry: Suzuki Keyless Start System

Further to the announcement that Suzuki has launched its latest lightweight and fuelefficient
model – the new four cylinder DF200A/AP – the manufacturer is leading the
way with innovation by featuring its Keyless Start System on the DF200AP model.
Suzuki has been at the forefront of outboard technology
since 1965, and the Keyless Start System is the latest
feature to set Suzuki apart from the competition.




A first in the marine industry, the Keyless Start System
uses a coded key-fob to transmit an access code to the
engine’s starting system. When the key-fob is within one
metre of the console, the user simply turns on the
ignition system switch and starts the engine with the
push of a button. When it’s time to leave, the user can
turn off the engine, switch the ignition system switch and head off for home. With the
key remaining safely in the user’s pocket, the system offers simple, stress-free
operation while reducing the risk of a lost key. The system makes for an excellent
theft deterrent since the outboard will not start without the proper access code. And
further to this, the key-fob floats so the user can retrieve it should it ever go


Masahiro Yamamoto, General Manager for Suzuki Marine European Liaison Office,
explains, “We’re pleased to bring the Suzuki Keyless Start System into the marine
market as it will provide boaters with enhanced security and convenience. Our
engineers take a lot of time and care over the development of new technologies and
we’re confident this system will prove popular among our customers when this
outboard becomes available in May 2015.”
