The 2017 Melbourne International Boat Show marked the global debut for the BF75, BF80, BF90 and BF100 and the Australian debut of the new BF40 and BF50 Honda outboards with a fresh new look and some updated features. With an upgraded ECU, the new outboards have the latest in EFI technology, so the exact amount of fuel is delivered at the perfect time, guaranteeing smoother performance and greater fuel savings. The new outboards also incorporate lean burn control technology (ECOmo), which allows combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel ratio during cruising to achieve greater fuel economy. Honda’s revolutionary Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST) technology boosts engine torque at low RPM under rapid acceleration, to get the hull up on the plane quickly. Developed for Honda’s high-performance sportscars and available on the updated BF90 and BF100, VTEC varies the lift and duration of the intake valves to provide optimum performance both at low and high rpm. NMEA2000 connectivity also comes standard. For more info visit the Honda Marine website.
