The new outboard promises the performance one would expect only from a V6 engine, but from just four cylinders, making it the lightest in its class - like the recently released DF30A and DF25A before it.
Other features include a direct air intake and 'Variable Valve Timing' for higher performance and thermal efficiency, a large 'Big Block' displacement and higher compression ratio for better acceleration and low-end torque, improved sensors for monitoring and controlling internal engine operation, and 'Lean Burn Control Technology' for much improved fuel economy.
Perhaps most importantly, the new DF200A hits the scales at just 225kg, more than 12% less than the current V6 DF200 model.
And all that's aside from the sleek styling that boaters have come to expect from Suzuki.
But for those who want even better tech, the new DF200AP tops the standard model's specs as the first 200HP to market with Suzuki Protection Control for drive-by-wire, and Suzuki Selective Rotation whereby dealers can set up engines in either standard or counter rotation thanks to the specially designed gearing and electronic shift controls.
The DF200AP also features a keyless ignition system, using a coded keyfob that adds an invaluable extra level of protection.
Suzuki's DF200A will be available from dealers later this year, with the DF200AP to follow in early 2015.
