Honda Marine said it is debuting new portable four-stroke outboard engines with its BF4 and BF6 models and has redesigned its BF5 models.

The company said the 127cc
4-stroke, single-cylinder engines offer boaters the choice of 4 hp (BF4), 5 hp (BF5) or 6 hp (BF6). All three new engines are available with either a short (15 inch/38 cm) or long (20 inch/51 cm) shaft.

The company said portability, performance and reliability are the hallmarks of the new and redesigned portable engine models.

“The new Honda BF4, BF5 and BF6 engines are easy to start, easy to stop and easy to carry. The new four-stroke Honda Marine engines are best-in-class performers. They are the right size for the right purpose,” senior manager Mark DiPietro said in a statement.

“The new Honda BF4, BF5 and BF6 marine engines feature a new internal fuel tank and new motor mounts to run quietly and smoothly, while delivering the longest continuous running time.”
