And at just 60kgs/ 159 pounds, the BF30 is the lightest engine in its class.
Compact Engines; World-Class Features
The BF30 offer a host of features designed for outstanding fuel efficiency and durability. The lightweight engine’s microprocessor-controlled Auto-Start Enrichment System allows it to be started with the simple turn of a key while automatically adjusting the air/fuel mixture for quick and easy starts. Similarly, PGM ignition employs microprocessor technology to accurately control ignition timing during start-up and across the entire rpm range, providing optimum overall operation.
The lightweight 3-cylinder engine utilize a 3-to-3 Induction System, employing one carburetor per cylinder for instant throttle response and increased fuel efficiency. The design is considerably more responsive than throttle bodies with long intake runners.
An innovative Engine Alert System uses audio and visual cues, as well as rpm reduction circuits to alert the operator of any issues, while throttle friction control, power tilt/trim control and engine alert indicators are located at the operator’s fingertips for quick, comfortable adjustment at a glance. A generous -4- to +12-degree trim angle provides maximum performance and handling, and the pair’s patented, Non-Linear Mounting System incorporates rubber mounts for reduced vibration and smooth operation at all engine speeds.
For long-term durability, Honda’s patented, multi-layer 4-Front Corrosion Protection paint System fights off corrosion from harsh marine environments. The base is a corrosion-resistant Honda aluminum alloy followed by a double-sealed treatment, an epoxy primer undercoat, and an acrylic resin metallic coating topped off with a clear overcoat of acrylic.
The BF30 is available with a 20-inch shaft, and now also in a short 15-inch shaft length. All new Honda outboard engines sold for recreational use offer an industry-best True 3-year, non-declining limited factory warranty that is the same on the last day as it is on the first.
