While specifications of the new engine were not disclosed, Honda Marine Senior Manager, John Fulcher, indicated that the new BF60 will continue Honda's tradition of offering innovative, fuel-efficient,
high-performance outboards, and will set the new best-in-class standard in the mid-range segment.
"Honda Marine continues to raise the standard for fuel efficiency and performance," said Fulcher. "The all-new BF60 continues that tradition, and reinforces Honda Marine's strong commitment to
market needs and the boating industry."
Honda also announced that it ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Four-Stroke Outboard Engines" in the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 Marine Engine Competitive Information Study℠?, the
fourth such honor the company has received in the past five years. "The acknowledgement by J.D. Power and Associates illustrates that Honda Marine and its dealers are dedicated to providing exceptional sales and service to
consumers," Fulcher said.
Honda Marine pioneered four-stroke engine technology, setting a new benchmark for fuel efficiency, quiet operation, and low emissions. Honda's outboards share the same unparalleled durability, quality, and
reliability of its legendary automobiles. With models ranging from 2 to 225 horsepower, Honda Marine's full line of current production models meets rigorous California Air Resources Board (CARB) 3-Star standards, ensuring their
availability and regulatory compliance in all 50 states.
