Boating is a great way to spend time with family and friends. Whether you prefer boating on the lake, bay or ocean, a great day on the water begins with Honda. Honda Marine is celebrating their 55th anniversary of the 4-stroke outboard this year! Why are 4-stroke outboard motors the best?
• It saves money with a lower operating cost. Four-stroke outboards are approximately 50%
more fuel-efficient than most 2-stroke outboards. No 2-stroke oil is needed, reducing your costs even further.
• Better 4-stroke technology means longer life for the outboard. Four strokes bathe every internal component in oil for consistent lubrication. This design also helps cool engine components, which improves durability. Two-stroke engines rely on gas or air to carry a thin oil film to critical components.
• Four-stroke outboards are approximately 90% cleaner than typical 2-strokes. The 4-stroke motors do not release oil directly into the water. Bonus: Honda outboards have ultra-low emissions.
• Four-stroke outboards are up to 50% quieter than 2-strokes. The 4-stroke outboards have less smoke and smell which provides a more pleasant operating experience. There is no 2-stroke stink to ruin your day on the water.
Honda continually incorporates technology from our highly advanced automotive and racing heritage. Many Honda outboards also include exclusive technological features found in Honda’s most popular cars including the Honda Accord, Pilot, Odyssey, CR-V and Ridgeline. All Honda outboards are backed by the only 5 year manufacturer’s warranty in the marine industry.
