Honda debuts flagship marine engine

Honda Marine introduced the new BF250 horsepower, four-stroke engine, the most powerful outboard to join the Honda Marine lineup and now the company’s flagship model.

The Honda BF250 marine outboard engine incorporates a host of Honda-exclusive technologies that provide increased value and benefit to consumers, the company said.

“The all-new Honda BF250 marine engine demonstrates the Honda commitment to engineering a product line with unparalleled performance, power and fuel economy,” national manager Alan Simmons said in a statement. “The introduction of this flagship engine also further strengthens our relationship with both consumers and boatbuilder partners.”

With a full-throttle RPM range of 5,300-6,300, the Honda BF250 is a high-performance 3.6 L engine that incorporates an all-new gear case and advancements from Honda’s automotive and marine outboard engine lines.

The engine is NMEA 2000-certified. The accreditation means the product has been tested to meet specific critical safety criteria and to correctly implement network management and messaging.

Beginning in 2012, the BF250 outboard engine will be available at Honda marine dealers nationwide. All new Honda outboard engines sold for recreational use, including the new BF250, offer a true five-year, non-declining limited factory warranty, the company said.
