Make your Boat Powerful with new Honda V8 350-Horsepower Engine

January 12, 2024, Tokyo, Japan: Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has announced the commencement of production for its groundbreaking BF350 outboard motor. This new addition stands as the pinnacle of the BF Series, renowned for its superior performance and cost-effectiveness. The BF350 boasts a unique V8 engine, offering a staggering 350 horsepower and unparalleled dynamic performance.

The heart of the BF350 lies in its innovative 4,952 cm3 V8 engine, ensuring robust propulsion and class-leading fuel efficiency. Honda’s dedication to environmental responsibility and cost-effectiveness is evident in the BF350’s design, which features advanced technology for reduced fuel consumption.

Notably, the BF350 introduces a suite of enhanced support functions. These include a cruise control function for maintaining consistent boat or engine speeds, and a trim support function for automatic outboard motor control to preserve a set trim angle. Additionally, the new automatic tilt feature enhances convenience for users during docking and storage.

Honda has also incorporated features to bolster the BF350’s performance in challenging conditions, such as a high-power tilt motor for reliable operation in cold weather and an antifreeze drainage structure. Ease of maintenance has been a focal point, ensuring a hassle-free and enjoyable boating experience.

The design of the BF350 reflects Honda’s “Noble Motion Form” concept, combining luxury with the brand’s traditional emphasis on harmony with nature and clean aesthetics. The outboard’s design communicates quality and is complemented by a redesigned DBW remote controller, which combines functional beauty with improved operability.

Key features of the BF350 include:

  • A high-power, fuel-efficient V8 engine designed exclusively for the BF350.
  • Enhanced boat operation support with the trim support function (a Honda first), cruise control, and automatic tilt function.
  • A large-capacity alternator for reliable battery charging.
  • Improved ease of maintenance, including a new engine cover design and an oil filter placement for cleaner oil changes.

The BF350, with its innovative engineering and stylish design, is poised to redefine the standards for large outboard motors, merging power with environmental consciousness and user convenience.
