World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
Easy Dock Steering® – Exceptional manuverability
Easy Dock Steering® on the standard BF60 tiller version offers a full 50 degrees of steering to port and again to starboard. Combine this with the Variable Speed Trolling and northern fisherman have tremendous control.
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.
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 10% less fuel* than others in its class.
*Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.
Variable Speed Trolling – ideal for slow trolling
For fisherman who want to slow troll, Honda’s variable speed control is the right fit. The system adjusts in 50 RPM increments between 750 RPM and 1000 RPM. Variable speed control is standard on the tiller models and optional on remote models.
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.
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. This helps to prevent 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, internally painted cooling passages, and a freshwater flushing device, all enhance corrosion protection.
A fresh water flushport flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine. Painted interior cooling passages help extend 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
There’s always plenty of electric power with the 60hp. Honda’s exclusive neodymium magnet flywheel enables these engines to produce nearly twice as many charging amps as some competitors. The high output helps keep battery banks charged all day, even when running multiple accessories. The standard BF60 develops a total 22 amps and 17 charging amps.
Optional Conveniences – tilt limit switch and rudder angle indicator
An optional tilt limit switch keeps the motor from rubbing against the bottom of a pontoon boat’s sun deck. The dash mounted rudder angle indicator keeps the captain informed to which direction the engine is pointing.
Easy access side-mounted oil filter and oil fillers simplify maintenance, while “screw-type” valve adjusters reduce maintenance costs.
Meets NMEA 2000 standards – on-board connectivity
NMEA 2000 protocols allow engine data to be displayed on NMEA 2000 compliant dashboard electronics, like sonar and GPS.
