Honda Marine’s BF30 combines Honda’s world-renowned reliability with responsive performance in a lightweight, compact package. Its extraordinarily smooth, stable, and quiet operation affords boaters maximum time on the water – whether trolling in the shallows or motoring across the open water.
The BF30HP incorporates a number of innovative features, including: Auto Start Enrichment; Centre-Mount Tiller option; PGM Ignition; 3-to-3 Induction; 4-Front Corrosion Protection; Engine Alert System; and Gas Assist Tilt for running in shallow water. And at just 159 pounds/ …..kgs, the BF30 is the lightest engine in its class.
Compact Engine/ 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 BF30’s lightweight 3-cylinder engine utilizes 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 BF30’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. 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.
Honda Marine pioneered four-stroke engine technology, setting a new benchmark for fuel efficiency, quiet operation, and low emissions. Honda’s outboards share the same unparalleled durability, quality, and reliability of its legendary automobiles, now with models ranging from 2 to 250 horsepower.
