4-Front Corrosion Protection System - Fights the elements
A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.Learn More
Available with Power Thrust Design (BFP) - better performance for heavy loads
The combination of the 2.33:1 gear ratio and the 10" x 6 1/2" Power Thrust 4-blade propeller creates 60% more thrust in reverse and 15% more in forward. The result is improved maneuverability and performance.
Reverse Exhaust Relief - increased manueverability (BFP models)
The Power Thrust model's exhaust relief feature creates more power in reverse by minimizing cavitation around the propeller blades. The exhaust relief is located above the cavitation plate, allowing the prop to run in clean, exhaust-free water.
Longer Tiller Handle - improved control
A convenient longer tiller handle improves control and reduced steering effort. The extended handle is made of a lightweight composite, increasing its durability while decreasing the motor's weight.
Conveniently tilts the engine out of the water for easy lift-off and transport.
PGM Ignition - optimal operation
A reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire RPM range. This provides optimum overall operation.
Engine Alert System - Keeps you informed
The integrated warning system protects the engine from severe damage due to low oil, over-revving and overheating.
Best in Class High Output Charging
The BF8 and 9.9 provide 2 Amps at 1000 RPM and an amazing 12 amps at only 3000 RPM. Recoil start models produce 6 amps at 3000 RPM. This helps to maintain the battery charge or keep electronics going - even at trolling speeds.Learn More
Lightweight Rounded Design
Easy to transport, BF8 and 9.9 are perfect for small boats, dinghies or auxiliary. The ergonomic design is rounded to avoid catching fishing line.
Auto Start Enrichment - easy starts
Auto Start Enrichment acts as an automatic choke. It automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for quick, easy starting and warm-up.
Pendulum Mount System - smooth operation
Honda's exclusive triangulated rubber mount system absorbs vibration and provides unbelievably smooth operation.
EZ Steer Friction Control
A unique lever design allows you to precisely adjust steering tension for improved control and comfort.
Shallow Water Drive
An innovative shallow water drive feature lets you tilt the motor up, allowing you to easily operate in shallow areas. Shallow water drive greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.
Up Front Tiller Controls - convenient shifting
The convenient front-mounted shift lever allows fingertip shifting. The Twist Grip Throttle & Tensioner minimize driver fatigue.
Integrated Carrying Handle - easier transport
A integrated carrying handle makes transporting the engine a breeze. The convenient, foldaway carry handle is situated at the exact top/bottom balance point of the engine. This means the engine carries more easily in a level position.
Positive Lubrication for better durability
A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
Available in 15, 20, and 25 inch shaft models
