    1. donePerformance and Efficiency
    2. done Honda Four-Stroke Engine Design
    3. done The BF20s utilize a 350 cc, 2-cylinder, in-line, OHC design powerhead. World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and quiet operation with no gas-oil mixing.
    4. done Pendulum-Motion Vibration Dampening
    5. 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.
    6. done Increased Reverse Thrust
    7. 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.
    8. done Remote-Control Models

    1. done Fully-remote-control BF20 models are available. Complete with control box and steering tube for clean installations.
    2. done Reliability and Durability
    3. done Complete Engine-Management System
    4. done Electronically controlled monitoring system protects the engine components from over-revving, low engine-oil pressure and overheating.
    5. done Regulated Charging System
    6. done A high-quality regulator/rectifier is standard on all models to prevent overcharging the battery.
    7. done Fresh Water Flushport
    8. 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).
    1. done Shallow-Water Drive
    2. done Allows you to run in shallow water with the engine raised to reduce the risk of damage to the lower gearcase.
    3. done Ultra Low 3-Star CARB Emissions
    4. 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.
    5. done Three-Year Warranty
    6. done The best outboards are backed by the best warranty, 3 years parts and labour.
    7. done Convenience and Ease of Use
    8. done Auto-Choke System
    9. done An automatically controlled start-up fuel-enrichment system ensures optimum air-fuel ratio to the engine, eliminating the chores of choke operation and greatly simplifying engine start-up (electric-start models).
    10. done Lightweight, Rounded Design
    11. done Easy to transport, ideal for 12-16 ft. fishing boats, inflatables and pontoon boats especially, with remote-control power-tilt models available. Rounded ergonomics won't catch fishing lines as easily.
    12. done High-Output Charging System
    13. done All electric-start models are fitted with a high-output charging system that will deliver an amazing 12 amps at only 3,000 rpm to keep your electronics working and batteries charged.
    14. done Easy-Pull Starting
    15. done The programmed-ignition system sets the ignition system during start-up to reduce the effort required to pull start the engine.
    16. done Forward-Mounted Shift Lever
    17. done Allows more control and comfort in shifting.
    18. done Quick-Twist Throttle Friction Adjuster
    19. 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.
    20. done Front-Mounted Steering-Friction Adjuster
    21. done A new quick-adjust lever design located just above the transom bracket allows for precise adjustments at your fingertips.
    22. done Integrated Carrying Handle
    23. 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.
    24. done Gas-Assist Tilt Model (LHGC model)
    25. done A model is available with high-pressure gas-assist strut that greatly reduces the effort required to raise the lower gearcase out of the water. The motor can be locked in any position with the simple flip of a lever and – when locked – up to 50% throttle may be applied within a specified range.
    26. done Power Tilt (LRTC model)
    27. done An electrically powered hydraulic lift system to raise and lower the motor in and out of the water at the touch of a button, either at the motor or from a remote location. Some optional parts may be required.
    28. done Long Tiller Handle
    29. done The BF20 tiller models use a long tiller handle for increased control and reduced steering effort. The tiller handle is also made of lightweight composite for increased strength and weight reduction.
    30. done Standard Fuel Tank, Hose and Propeller
    31. done A 12.5-litre fuel tank, fuel hose and aluminum propeller are included as standard equipment.
