Light and portable power that's smooth, clean and quiet
Outboards that produce 15 or 20 horsepower that are actually portable – you better believe it. With well-positioned foldaway handles, they're perfect for all boats that need pocket-sized power.
If you’ve got an inflatable boat, a RIB or a tender, these engines are not only easy to transport, they’re easy to operate too.
IT'S GOOD TO TALK
They’re so quiet you can raise the power, without having to raise your voice.
Whether it’s for commercial or leisure use, when the 4-stroke spins into life you’ll notice how quiet it is as you roll on the power. And with the exclusive Honda rubber mount device that soaks up the vibrations, it feels smooth too. These high-output outboards will push you and your passengers nicely through the water when you're out for a day’s work, or cruising and fishing. Now, that’s something worth talking about.
Our engines have a reputation built on reliability, superior fuel-efficiency and low emissions – so the environment will love you for choosing a Honda.
You’ll be glad to know these light 4-stroke 350cc engines are easy to start, that's because they have a decompression system and a Programmed ignition (PGM IG). This ignition system accurately delivers the right amount of fuel/air mixture to the twin cylinders, so when you fire up these Hondas – even from cold – they're ready for fun, right from the word go.
These compact engines are not only smooth operators, they're robust and perfect for commercial use too. They have a high-output charging coil, which will support most electronic equipment you have on board – even at lower revs and slower speeds.
IT WILL TURN HEADS
We think something that works beautifully should look great too.
The finish is stunning in Honda aqua marine silver. And with a folding handle on the exact point of balance, even carrying it around the outboard looks fantastic.
Always in the know
Both engines are available with tiller handle and remote control options. The remote control option visually displays engine alert lights, oil pressure and overheating. It also produces an audible warning to attract your attention should anything happen while you’re concentrating on other tasks. It’s unlikely – but if there is an issue, you’ll have time to act.
IT ALL BEGAN OVER A CUP OF COFFEE
Why are Honda outboards used all over the waterways of Venice? Because of Italian coffee.
Those who work on the canals always meet to talk over a coffee before and after their day’s work. Word of mouth will carry faster than the current itself, so as the word spread about Honda’s pioneering 4-stroke technology, it was no surprise that everybody listened. With such high standards for reliability, fuel efficiency, quiet operation and low emissions – 4-strokes soon became as common as the Gondolas themselves.
