The BF10 has been designed for boaters who want dependable performance in a portable package.
At 222cc, it has the largest displacement in its class, and Honda’s Power Thrust Propellor – a four-blade propeller design (optional) – creates significantly more thrust in both forward and reverse gears.
Of course, Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
As with all Honda outboards, the BF10’s Advanced Four-Stroke Technology means unparalleled easy starting, quiet operation and low emissions. There’s no messy two-stroke oil mixing required, saving you time – and money – in the long term.
The BF10 has very low fuel consumption and maintenance costs, yet still delivers the optimum performance and durability for which Honda is renowned.
Programmed Ignition (PGM-IG) also accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire rev range for impressive overall operation. And a crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures critical engine component long-term durability, giving you years of enjoyment from your BF10.
At just 42kg, the BF10 is one of the lightest four-stroke engines in its class. This allows convenient transport and easy mounting to any hull.
A helpful, foldaway carry handle is situated at the exact top/bottom balance point of the engine, so that the engine carries easily in a level position.
And the BF10 has a long tiller handle for increased control and reduced steering effort. The extended handle is made from a lightweight composite for increased durability and weight reduction.
A High Output Charging system pumps out 2amp at 1000rpm and an amazing 12amp at only 3000rpm to maintain the battery charge and keep electronics going, even at trolling speeds.
The convenient Forward-Mount Shift Lever allows fingertip shifting, while the BF10’s Twist Grip Throttle and Tensioner allows for superior throttle friction control, minimising driver fatigue.
And the BF10 comes with an industry-leading 7 Year Warranty. Combined with 100 authorised Honda dealers located all around Australia, it’s never been easier to get your boat out onto the water.
On electric-start models, the engine automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for quick, easy starting and warm-up operation
Working together, a built-in decompression release and Digital CDI system set the ignition timing during start-up. Greatly reduces the effort required to pull-start the engine by hand!
Honda’s exclusive triangulated rubber mount system absorbs vibration and provides unbelievably smooth operation.
The integrated warning system protects the engine from severe damage due to low oil, over-revving and overheating.
CORROSION PROTECTION SYSTEM
A patented ‘double sealed’ multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
Flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.
EZ STEER FRICTION CONTROL
Unique lever design allows operator to precisely adjust steering tension for improved control and comfort.
Allows you to run in shallow water and greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.
