World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
Weighing in at only 359 lbs, the 65hp Jet is one of the lightest in its class.
VTEC® – Smooth acceleration and power.
Honda’s Variable Valve Timing & Lift Electronic Control (VTEC®) system provides power where and when you need it. VTEC gives you a broader, flatter torque curve and smooth power delivery throughout the engine’s operating range. The result is a superior combination of power, torque and fuel economy. VTEC is the modern replacement for displacement.
Programmed Fuel Injection – Powerful performance
Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air to each cylinder. The result is easy starts and instant throttle response with superior fuel efficiency.
Lean Burn Control® – Superior fuel efficiency
Lean Burn Control® increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on up to 20% less fuel* than others in its class.
*Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.
BLAST® System – improves acceleration at low speeds
Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST® system, advancing the ignition curve aggressively. “Hole Shot” is vastly improved as more horsepower gets the hull up on plane quicker..
Torsion Dampener – improved handling.
Sometimes called a flywheel, it is located near the base of the powerhead. This design lowers the center of gravity for improved handling.
SOHC 4 Valve/Cyl. Design – max power
The 65hp Jet’s powerful 1.5L, 4-cylinder design utilizes a single overhead cam, and two intake valves to deliver maximum torque and power.
Sealed Starter – Protection for long life
The starter motor is inverted into a sealed chamber that protects the starter drive from the elements.
Legendary Honda Reliability
The technology we applied to our newest outboard engine is the very same that powers one of the most popular cars in the world, the Honda Fit.
3-Way Cooling System – Cool running durability
Three separate cooling systems keep the cylinder heads running cooler for long-term durability.
Engine Alert System – Keeps you informed
The Engine Alert System uses visual, audio and RPM reduction circuits to alert the operator of over-heating, low oil PSI and over-revving, preventing engine damage.
4-Front Corrosion Protection System – Fights the elements
The Corrosion Protection System is a patented “Double Sealed” multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
Top Mounted Electronics
The alternators, ignition and other critical electrical components are mounted near the top of the powerhead to stay cool and dry. The result? Dependable performance.
A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
Ultra Low 3 Star CARB Emissions
Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board’s standards.
True 5 Warranty
Honda’s True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the last day as it is on the first.
Superior Battery Charging – More usable power
There’s always plenty of electric power with Honda’s exclusive neodymium magnet flywheel. The alternator develops 44 amps in total and 35 amps of charging amps, it’s twice the output of some competitors. It provides high output and keeps battery banks charged all day, even when running multiple accessories.
Center Mount Tiller – Easier control
The ergonomically designed tiller handle is longer for improved handling. Adjustments for throttle and steering friction allow easier control. Up front shift lever, PTT switch, and e ngine alert lamps provide added convenience.
An easy “screw-type” valve adjuster system requires no shims, which reduces maintenance costs. Front-mounted oil filter and oil filler make for easy maintenance.
