With a unique blend of automotive and marine engine technologies, the BF250 is a showcase of Honda’s engineering and technical excellence. If you’re looking for the ultimate on-water experience, you’ve just found it.
IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT THE KNOTS
The BF250 is without doubt the flagship model for more reasons than just horsepower. This incredible outboard provides a host of exclusive technologies that make it the best for both recreational and commercial use. NMEA 2000® compliant and featuring a host of racing innovations, the BF250 is a sleek and versatile motor that gives you exactly what you need, when you need it. Long-term reliability is important too, especially if you depend on the water to make a living. Remember, if your engine isn’t working – then neither are you.
A PGM-Fi fuel injected, 24 valve, SOHC, 3.5 litre, V6 engine – you better hold on to your hat.
If it sounds to you like an engine that should be in a fast car, then you would be half right. Most of our engineering ideas and creations are born out of the vast knowledge and commitment to developing power – and race winning performance – for over 60 years. VTEC™, for example, was first used commercially in the awesome Honda NSX sports car. With innovative additions especially for marine like BLAST™ and ECOmo, this engine with its unique dual air-intake system is the very best in class for economy – and low emissions too.
V6 Power with VTEC Technology
The BF250 comes with our V6 engine coupled with Honda VTEC technology (Variable Valve Timing and Lift electronic Control), providing superb performance and fully optomised power delivery thoughtout the rev range.
Up, up and away
Honda BLAST™ hole shot technology with PGM-Fi electronic fuel injection delivers instant acceleration to get you up on to the plane as quickly as possible. It does this by using improved accurate ignition timing, which develops more torque at low rpm so you can rapidly reach cruising speed.
The High Output alternator delivers a solid 90A, which will keep a battery with a 60A charging capacity in top condition; and it’ll keep all your on board electronic equipment powered up too.
Honda iST (Intelligent Shift & Throttle)
The BF250 is available with Honda’s exclusive iST Intelligent Shift & Throttle, giving effortless control of your outboard. It offers fine tuning of throttle settings at any speed, including a ‘slow’ mode for manoeuvring at low speed. Easy to install and simple to use, the iST provides complete control at your fingertips.
Plug and play
The engine is NMEA2000® compliant, which makes it compatible with all other compliant electronic devices – like navigation and fishfinder systems. Engine data like rpm, temperature and fuel consumption can be displayed through multi-functional gauges.
Cruise more, spend less
Our unique lean-burn control ECOmo system adjusts the fuel to air ratio depending on load and speed to improve your fuel consumption when cruising. When your boat is up on the plane and cruising (in the green area illustrated above ) you’ll be saving up to 20% of your fuel by making the mixture leaner – saving you money.
Engine protection and security
Honda outboard alert systems monitor critical engine functions including engine temperature, oil pressure, fuel injection and charging, and will alert the boat user to abnormal operating conditions.
