Lightweight Portability

Lightweight and compact

The BF2.3 is incredibly light and easy to transport. Weighing less than 30 pounds, it's the ideal engine for dinghys, car-toppers and other types of small boats.

Easy to carry and install

A front mounted carrying handle provides superior portability and ease of installation.

Quiet & Smooth Performance

More power - without sacrificing portability

With 15% more horsepower over its predecessor, this ultra light weight powerhouse produces surprising speed and maneuverability.

Centrifugal clutch - better performance

The centrifugal clutch maintains a smooth idle and when advanced, automatically engages the prop above idle speed. It's like having a neutral position.

Convenient Controls

Precise Throttle Control

A twist grip throttle allows for precise throttle control. The throttle tensioner minimizes driver fatigue.

360° swivel steering - added manueverability

Provides excellent maneuverability in tight areas as well as full thrust in reverse (at 180°).

Convenient fold down tiller

The BF2.3's tiller folds up or down for easy stowing.

Steering friction adjustment

Allows you to adjust steering tension for ease in maneuverability.

Adjustable trim

Four manual settings ensure proper trim angle for maximum performance.

Easy Ownership

Easy Starting

The maintenance free transistor ignition offers high-energy output for quick and easy starts.

Internal fuel tank - easier portability

With 12% more capacity over its predecessor, the BF2.3 now runs up to 60 minutes at full throttle on a tank of fuel. The internal tank facilitates easy removal and portability as a single unit.

Easy maintenance

The BF2.3 offers a convenient oil fill and drain. A carburetor drain screw allows quick and easy draining of the carburetor's float bowl for extended storage periods.

Sheer and cotter pin keeper

The self-contained keeper stores two extra sets of cotter and sheer pins close at hand, so you'll be prepared if and when you need them.

Dual lockable transom clamps

Provides extra security when mounted to the transom.

Legendary Reliability

True 5 Warranty - unmatched peace of mind

Honda's True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the first day as it is on the last.

Forced air cooled engine - no water pump worries

The air-cooled block eliminates concern over clogged water pumps and debris being sucked into the powerhead, as well as reducing maintenance.

4-Front Corrosion Protection System - Fights the elements

A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes, stainless steel technology, and waterproof connectors enhance corrosion protection.
