Suzuki is introducing three new outboard engine models to its range in the form of the DF140B, DF115B and the DF100C. These new outboards are mechanically controlled and replace the out-going DF140A, DF115A and DF100B models.
These new additions to the Suzuki outboard range provide an upgraded compression ratio of 10.6:1 for better top speed and quicker acceleration as well as increased fuel economy through improved thermal efficiency.
These new outboards also include a 40-amp alternator that delivers improved output and battery charging at low idle speeds. A redesigned cowling incorporates a new air intake structure with improved water separation and a silencer-resonator system to provide a more pleasant boating experience at all engine speeds. The new design also gives a smoother and more dynamic aesthetic appeal.
To make routine maintenance easier, Suzuki has made it possible to replace the oil filter simply by removing the upper engine cover. To further increase ease of maintenance, the hole for the oil level gauge has been widened to 15mm which enables the use of a larger oil change hose. In addition, a new oil spill catcher on the filter mount prevents spillages and a new easy access water detection fuel filter helps protect the engine against contaminated fuel.
The DF140B, DF115B and DF100C provide heavy-duty performance and long-lasting durability in a lightweight, mechanically controlled package and are also the first four-stroke outboards to utilise an oil cooler, ensuring that all that horsepower is available in any conditions.
Mark Beeley, Head of Marine & ATV for Suzuki GB said, “The new DF140B, DF115B and DF100C models are the latest in a long line of our innovative, lightweight and fuel-efficient four-stroke outboards that give customers the power, performance and reassurance that they need for a wide variety of boating activities.”
The Suzuki outboard engine range is available in Ireland from selected handlers including Viking Marine and OS Marine
