Suzuki Corporation Introduces Two New Outboard Motors - DF150AP and DF175AP
They are derated versions of the 200-horsepower DF200AP and feature high low-end torque and the largest displacement in their class. The Lean Burn Control system should help reduce fuel consumption.
In the spring of 2015, Suzuki Marine released a new DF200AP engine, the design of which turned out to be successful, and the model itself was in demand. At the same time, the maximum power of 200 hp. was in some cases redundant, given the maximum allowable power for many popular boat models. The company has decided to create two new variants - DF150AP and DF175AP. They are based on the same 2.9-liter 4-cylinder block, but feature reduced power while maximizing low-end torque.
Suzuki claims that the 150- and 175-horsepower variants are among the heaviest in their class. At the same time, a large working volume of 2,867 cubic meters. cm combined with a relatively high compression ratio (10.2:1) does not mean high fuel consumption. Specific figures are not given, he calls Lean Burn Control lean mixture supply technology, as well as a number of other design solutions, as pluses.
Engines are distinguished by quiet operation, low vibration level. A feature of the AP range of outboard motors is that they can be configured to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise for twin installations (Selective Rotation system).
MAKE SPEED A PRIORITY.
Suzuki’s DF175A offers a large displacement engine with exceptional acceleration and torque. This often comes in a much heavier and larger frame but with it’s four-cylinder DOHC powerhead featuring large displacement is one of the lightest four strokes in the 175 HP class. This remarkable model is available in mechanical or digital controls and your choice of color can be either Nebular Black or New White.
LIMIT DAMAGE, NOT YOUR DAY.
Protect your boat and motor from damage that can occur from tilting the motor with the help of a user adjustable tilt limit switch. When adjusted properly, our Tilt Limit System prevents the outboard from tilting beyond a predetermined point.
LEAN INTO SAVINGS.
Our Lean Burn intelligent fuel management system predicts fuel needs by monitoring engine performance and operating conditions to deliver a leaner fuel mixture to the engine. The result: remarkably improved fuel economy that the environment—and your wallet—will love.
STAY IN THE CLEAR.
Suzuki’s Multi-Point Sequential Electronic Fuel Injection supplies each of the engine’s cylinders with an optimized mixture of fuel and air that is injected into the cylinder at high pressure. The system delivers improved fuel economy, crisp acceleration and reduced emissions that meet emissions regulations. It also conforms to the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) Standards and has received a 3-star rating from the California Air Resource Board (CARB).
EASY TO CLEAN. EASIER TO LOVE.
Over time, salt, sand and dirt buildup can restrict flow in the cooling system and cause damage. That’s why we’ve equipped this outboard with two freshwater flush ports that make flushing the cooling system easier than ever. With one port located on the port side of the down housing and a second on the front panel, you’ll always have easy access to the flushing system whether the boat is in or out of the water.
