Suzuki announces new four-stroke large outboard motor DF250AP
Suzuki will launch the new four-stroke, large outboard motor, DF250AP in Australia, Europe, North America, Japan, etc. from the summer of 2012. Suzuki large outboard motor DF250AP shares the same technology and design with Suzuki’s flagship outboard motor, DF300AP. Suzuki Selective Rotation, the world’s first technology to integrate both regular and counter rotations of a propeller, which was first adopted on DF300AP, is also adopted on DF250AP. To meet the market needs, the control system is changed from conventional mechanical cable to electronically controlled Suzuki Precision Control (electronic throttle and shift systems), which realized quick-responding throttle control and smooth gear operation.
Based on the DF300AP engine, i DF250AP’s displacement is raised from 3,614cm3 to 4,028cm3, while newly adopting the Suzuki Lean Burn Control, which realized improvement of fuel efficiency in a wide speed range from low speed to cruising. Suzuki large outboard motor DF250AP will be introduced as one of the models that represent Suzuki outboard motor’s advanced technologies and designs.
