Honda Four-Stroke Engine Design
World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability with one-cylinder, 127 cubic centimeter engine block and benefit from the Honda 4-stroke engine technology expertise.
Lightweight, Compact Design
The Honda BF4 is among the lightest in its class at 27 kg (59 lbs). It is not just among the lightest in its class but is exceptionally easy to carry as a result of its redesigned carrying handle shape. This model can be carried either positioned front to back or left to right, allowing for easy transport and installation. When it comes to storage of the engine, the tiller handle can fold up and down in a variety of positions; folding down facilitates the stowing of the engine, particularly in tight storage compartments. In addition, as an auxiliary outboard, it can be easily stowed and away from the elements, rather than kept on the boat’s transom bracket. The all-new BF4 portable outboard provide class-leading performance in a compact design for a wide range of marine applications from leisure to emergency use. The BF4 is well-suited for different types of small boats including skiffs, inflatable boats and dinghies.
Large-Displacement, Single-Cylinder Engine
Packed with the latest technology from Honda, the 127 cc, 4-stroke, single cylinder engine, the BF4 is a compact, lightweight engine, with excellent low- to mid-range power. Small in size but big in power, the BF4 provides efficient acceleration and high levels of torque.
Maintenance-free, high-energy output for quick and easy starts.
Reliability and Durability
Oil Alert System
To help protect the engine, the Honda BF4 outboard also feature an Oil Alert System that indicates low oil pressure. When low oil is detected, the system will automatically limit the engine speed to 2,300 rpm and a signal is sent to the user (oil alert warning light). This standard warning system protects the engine from severe damage during a low engine-oil situation and provides boaters peace of mind.
Fresh Water Flushport
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)
Efficient Fuel Tank Cooling
The cover of the all-new Honda BF4 is designed to effectively cool the internal fuel tank by facilitating the flow of cool air around the engine. During operation, ambient (cool) air is taken in under the engine’s cover and channeled toward the fuel tank. At the same time, hot air produced by the engine is directed away from the fuel tank and into the carburetor where it is mixed with cool air.
Greatly reduces the risk of engine damage while navigating in shallow water.
A sacrificial anode is mounted on the anti-ventilation plate of the lower unit. It is used to protect other metal components on the outboard from corrosion. The anode must be exposed to the water in order to protect the outboard motor.
