    1. donePerformance and Efficiency
    2. done Honda Four-Stroke Engine Design
    3. done The BF8s utilize a, twin cylinder, in-line, OHC design powerhead. World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability, quiet operation, low emissions and superior fuel efficiency, with no gas-oil mixing.
    4. done Complete Engine-Management System
    5. done Electronically controlled monitoring system protects the engine components from over-revving, low engine-oil pressure and overheating.
    6. done Pendulum-Motion Vibration Dampening
    7. done An exclusive Honda feature, the pendulum-motion mounting system for the powerhead helps absorb the vibration, including longitudinal vibration, which was difficult to reduce successfully by conventional rubber mounts. The pendulum mount does this without the use of a heavy balancer shaft, which also significantly reduces overall weight.
    8. done Increased Reverse Thrust

    1. done When reversing, the exhaust gases are diverted through additional exhaust relief ports above the cavitation plate, allowing the propeller to back up into clean, bubble-free water, thereby increasing reverse thrust.
    2. done Reliability and Durability
    3. done Regulated Charging System
    4. done A high-quality regulator/rectifier is standard on all models to prevent overcharging the battery.
    5. done Fresh Water Flushport
    6. done Allows easy hook-up to fresh water supply to flush debris and salt water out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard (optional Flush Kit required).
    7. done Shallow-Water Drive
    8. done Allows you to run in shallow water with the engine raised to reduce the risk of damage to the lower gearcase.
    1. done Ultra Low 3-Star CARB Emissions
    2. done Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board's standards.
    3. done Three-Year Warranty
    4. done The best outboards are backed by the best warranty, 3 years parts and labour.
    5. done Convenience and Ease of Use
    6. done Lightweight, Rounded Design
    7. done Easy to transport, ideal for 10-12 ft. fishing boats, inflatables or for auxiliary sail and trolling power. Also, the BF8's rounded ergonomics won't catch fishing lines as easily.
    8. done High-Output Charging System
    9. done All electric-start models are fitted with a high-output charging system that will deliver 6 amps at only 3,000 rpm to keep your electronics working and batteries charged (models with electric-start not offered in Canada).
    10. done Easy-Pull Starting
    11. done The programmed-ignition system sets the ignition system during start-up to reduce the effort required to pull start the engine. Also, PGM-IG ignition provides reliable starts and optimum ignition timing, enhancing running performance and fuel economy across the entire speed range.
    12. done Forward-Mounted Shift Lever
    13. done Allows more control and comfort in shifting.
    14. done Quick-Twist Throttle Friction Adjuster
    15. done A simple twist of the throttle friction collar located right at the throttle grip allows you to adjust the throttle tension up or down, minimizing driver fatigue.
    16. done Front-Mounted Steering-Friction Adjuster
    17. done A new quick-adjust lever design located just above the transom bracket allows for precise adjustments at your fingertips.
    18. done Integrated Carrying Handle
    19. done A convenient, foldaway carry handle is situated at the exact horizontal balance point of the engine so that the engine carries more easily in a level position.
    20. done Long Tiller Handle
    21. done The BF8 tiller models use a long tiller handle for increased control and reduced steering effort. The tiller handle is also made of a new lightweight composite for increased strength and weight reduction.
    22. done Standard Fuel Tank and Propeller
    23. done A 12.5-litre fuel tank, fuel hose and aluminum propeller are included as standard equipment.
