Suzuki’s new V-6 DF350A — the lat­est 350 hp out­board — features sev­eral in­no­va­tive de­signs, in­clud­ing a pair of con­tra-ro­tat­ing three-blade pro­pel­lers. This setup helps boost hole shot, min­i­mizes prop torque, grips bet­ter in tight turns and im­proves low-speed han­dling in for­ward or re­verse. To gen­er­ate greater horse­power out of the 4.4-liter block, Suzuki in­creased the com­pres­sion ra­tio to 12-to-1 — the high­est so far for an out­board. The new 350 car­ries over some as­pects from its smaller sis­ter, the 300, in­clud­ing elec­tronic throt­tle and shift, lean burn, an off­set drive shaft, two-gear re­duc­tion and vari­able valve tim­ing. The XL (25-inch shaft) and XXL (30-inch shaft) models weigh 727 and 747 pounds, re­spec­tively. The engine comes in pearl neb­u­lar black or cool white and starts at $31,565.
