Pre­view of new boat­ing prod­ucts.


Suzuki has just launched its new DF175A and DF150A out­board en­gines.

These lat­est mo­tors should strengthen Suzuki’s po­si­tion within this key horse­power sec­tor of the mar­ket. Cus­tomers will ben­e­fit from Suzuki’s core tech­nolo­gies all geared up to de­liv­er­ing out­stand­ing power and ex­cit­ing per­for­mance, to­gether with su­pe­rior fuel ef­fi­ciency – all from a su­per-com­pact and light­weight unit.

Boast­ing a class-lead­ing 2.9-litre in-line four-cylin­der DOHC en­gine, they also use a high 10.2:1 com­pres­sion ra­tio, which pro­vides great low-end torque and gen­er­ates im­pres­sive ac­cel­er­a­tion.


To max­imise per­for­mance, the DF175A and DF150A are equipped with a Semi-Di­rect Air In­take Sys­tem to pro­vide the en­gine with a cooler flow of air, an O2 Sen­sor to op­ti­mise com­bus­tion, and a knock sen­sor for su­pe­rior re­li­a­bil­ity.

Fur­ther­more, Suzuki has utilised its off­set drive shaft to move the out­board’s cen­tre of grav­ity for­ward, to im­prove bal­ance and re­duce vi­bra­tion on the tran­som, while con­tribut­ing greatly to the out­board’s over­all com­pact­ness.


Fuel econ­omy is an im­por­tant is­sue for all boaters. Both these en­gines ben­e­fit from a Lean Burn Con­trol Sys­tem, which is de­signed to save fuel both at low speed and up into the cruis­ing range.

This is done by pre­dict­ing fuel needs ac­cord­ing to op­er­at­ing con­di­tions, then de­liv­er­ing an op­ti­mum mix­ture of fuel and air to the en­gine, which in the case of these new mod­els re­sults in a 14 per cent improve­ment in fuel econ­omy for the DF175A over the cur­rent DF175, and seven per cent for the DF150A over the cur­rent DF150.
