The BF8 is renowned for offering both incredible reliability and economy, with responsive performance and power. All this comes in a compact design which has foldaway handles built in making it easily portable. With a sleek design and sculpted lines which run all the way down to the super-slim hydrodynamic gear case, this means less drag and better fuel economy. With its stunning silver finish you’ll see right away it’s a Honda.

Easy starter

This engine has a decompression system which makes for easy starting. This makes the engine much easier to turn over with that initial pull.

Solid performance

The Honda Programmed Ignition (PGM-IG) accurately controls ignition timing to provide the ideal torque and throttle response. So, when you start your Honda – even from cold – it will never let you down.

Easy manual tilt

The light engine is easy to tilt up in stages. Lifting up or down, enables you to manually trim the boat to give you maximum fuel efficiency and performance. It also prevents damage happening to the propeller blades when you find yourself near rocks or the water’s edge.

Easy astern

In forward motion the propeller will drive the boat normally through water, but when in reverse it's a different story – unless you have a Honda. On other outboards, the propeller will turn in exhaust bubbles and wont ‘latch’ onto the water. Our unique reverse exhaust relief system directs the exhaust bubbles away from the propeller, so that it can 'grip' the water – instead of air. This means when you put it into reverse you get an instant response with much finer control.

Easy on your wrist

This engine has a Forward Mount Shift Lever which means you can gear change with your fingertips. It's so much easier to operate than on other outboards, whether you're left or right-handed. Together with a soft-grip throttle handle and a twist-lock, it’s effortless. You can just roll the power on and off all day long or lock it off – similar to cruise control.

4Front Corrosion Protection

This engine goes through a four layer coating process. We first anodise the aluminium casing with our patented ‘Double Seal’ process. Then an epoxy primer is applied before the shimmering silver paint. For further protection from UV rays, we apply a clear resin topcoat to finish. And to be absolutely sure, a sacrificial anode is fitted and all connectors are waterproof.

The Honda way

Our founder, Soichiro Honda, wanted to ensure our outboard engines were cleaner, quieter and friendlier to the environment – so he made them 4-stroke. This made Honda pioneers in marine engine technology. Therefore, as you accelerate away, you can have peace of mind in the fact that the clean water you are boating through will be staying that way.

Watertight warranty

Every Honda Marine customer has the support of a domestic or professional warranty, so you’re covered whatever the use. It will also maintain the same value throughout its warranty period - that means your last day of cover is as good as your first. We think that’s pretty unbeatable too.
