World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
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.
Dual Stage Induction – Breathing easier improves performance
Honda’s unique variable intake system optimizes air flow to match the engine’s speed. The result? Maximized combustion efficiency, increased torque, and superb fuel economy.
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.
Dual Overhead CAM (DOHC) – High horsepower, low maintenance
A powerful, compact 24-valve DOHC design creates more valve lift to pull in more air for increased horsepower. Low-maintenance design allows easy adjustment of the rocker arms. No multiple shims or trial-and-error adjusting needed.
Engine Command Module – Optimum performance
The ECM receives constant input from 18 different sensors to deliver instant starts, smooth operation, strong performance and excellent fuel efficiency.
LAF & Knock Sensors – Optimum Efficency
Linear Air Fuel (LAF) and knock sensors help determine correct fuel flow and ignition curve to maximize performance and fuel efficiency.
Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) – 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.
Counter Rotation Available
Counter rotating models are available for multiple engine applications. These models improve efficiency, hull maneuverability and decreases driver fatigue.
Based on Honda Accord, CRV, and Element
By sharing many components with the Honda Accord, CRV and Element automobiles, the BF150 gains years of proven Honda engineering and reliability.
3-Way Cooling System – Cool running durability
Three separate cooling systems keep the cylinder heads running cooler for long-term durability.
A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
4-Front Corrosion Protection System – Fights the elements
A patented, “Double Sealed” multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
Fresh Water Flushport
Flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.
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
Honda’s proven “on demand” 51 amp belt-driven alternator reduces heat buildup and provides superior battery charging capability – 30 amps at 1000 RPM and 40+ amps above 2000 RPM.
Built-In Pitot Tube
Built-in pitot tube in the gear case eliminates the need to drill holes in your boat for installation.
