Performance and Efficiency
- Four-Stroke Engine Design: World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability with no oil-gasoline mixing.
- Centrifugal Clutch: Honda’s centrifugal clutch facilitates the running of the engine at idle, with no propeller rotation, for tight navigation or just idling at the dock.
- Lightweight, Compact Design: Easily transportable, this little outboard is ideal for small boats, dinghies and canoes. Lightweight 4-stroke design and is the only 4-stroke in the 2.3-hp class.
- Transistorized Ignition: Maintenance-free, high-energy output for quick and easy starting.
Reliability and Durability
- Forced-Air Cooled Engine: No water pump to worry about being plugged with weeds or damaged by sand, and less weight to carry.
- Emergency Stop Switch and Lanyard: Standard safety feature allows the operator to clip the safety switch lanyard or tether to his or her wrist, which will automatically activate the engine stop switch if the operator leaves the helm.
- Shallow-Water Drive: Reduces the risk of engine damage while navigating in shallow water.
- Sacrificial Anode: A sacrificial anode mounted on the lower unit protects other metal components from corrosion.
- Three-Year Warranty: The best outboards in the industry are backed by the best warranty in the business, 3 years parts and labour.
