New Suzuki Outboard Motors Punch Above Their Weight

New Suzuki Outboard Motors Punch Above Their Weight

#TradeNews - Motor boaters looking for some featherweight power will want to consider two new Suzuki outboard models that punch well above their weight.

At just 62kg each, the DF30A and DF25A are the lightest in their respective classes. But despite their lack of heft, Suzuki haven't scrimped on the innards.

Both models boast a new battery-less electronic fuel injection system for quicker starts, smoother operation and better acceleration.

Other features include roller rocker arms, an offset crankshaft, improved intake and engine cover ventilation and up to 15% increased fuel efficiency.

Production begins shortly, with the first models expected in dealerships by May this year - just in time for summer!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
