    • Reliable, efficient 4-stroke design
      World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.

    • Easy One Hand Starting
      The digital CDI ignition retards the spark to top-dead-center during start up to greatly reduce effort required to pull-start the engine by hand.

    • True 5 Warranty
      Honda’s True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the first day as it is on the last.

    • Ultra Low 3 Star CARB Emissions
      Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board’s standards.

    • 4-Front Corrosion Protection System – Fights the elements
      A patented, “Double Sealed” multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.

    • Longer Tiller Handle – improved control
      A convenient longer tiller handle improves control and reduced steering effort. The extended handle is made of a lightweight composite, increasing its durability while decreasing the motor’s weight.
    • Power Tilt (Optional)
      Conveniently tilts the engine out of the water for easy lift-off and transport.

    • PGM Ignition – optimal operation
      A reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire RPM range. This provides optimum overall operation.

    • Engine Alert System – Keeps you informed
      The integrated warning system protects the engine from severe damage due to low oil, over-revving and overheating.

    • Best in Class High Output Charging
      The BF8 and 9.9 provide 2 Amps at 1000 RPM and an amazing 12 amps at only 3000 RPM. Recoil start models produce 6 amps at 3000 RPM. This helps to maintain the battery charge or keep electronics going – even at trolling speeds.

    • Lightweight Rounded Design
      Easy to transport, the Honda BF8 and 9.9 are perfect for small boats, dinghies or auxiliary. The ergonomic design is rounded to avoid catching fishing line.

    • Auto Start Enrichment – easy starts
      Auto Start Enrichment acts as an automatic choke. It automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for quick, easy starting and warm-up.

    • Pendulum Mount System – smooth operation
      Honda’s exclusive triangulated rubber mount system absorbs vibration and provides unbelievably smooth operation.

    • EZ Steer Friction Control
      A unique lever design allows you to precisely adjust steering tension for improved control and comfort.

    • Shallow Water Drive
      An innovative shallow water drive feature lets you tilt the motor up, allowing you to easily operate in shallow areas.

      Shallow water drive greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.

    • Up Front Tiller Controls – convenient shifting
      The convenient front-mounted shift lever allows fingertip shifting. The Twist Grip Throttle & Tensioner minimize driver fatigue.

    • Integrated Carrying Handle – easier transport
      A integrated carrying handle makes transporting the engine a breeze. The convenient, foldaway carry handle is situated at the exact top/bottom balance point of the engine. This means the engine carries more easily in a level position.

    • Positive Lubrication for better durability
      A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
