Why Choose Suzuki

The advantages are clear with Suzuki

Whether you are boating for work or pleasure, we have got an outboard for every application from the lightweight and portable DF2.5 to the award-winning power of the DF300AP Lean Burn.

As every engine in our range is designed specifically for the rigours of marine use our four stroke outboards provide quiet, fuel-efficient and reliable technology whilst delivering market-leading power and performance.

There are many reasons why more and more people are turning to Suzuki to power their boats, and here are just a few of them:

Why Suzuki Icon - Fit For Purpose

Fit for purpose

All of the engines used in our outboard motors are designed specifically for marine use, which means that they are ready out of the box for whatever boating you do. They have all been developed from the ground up with each and every component designed to make them as lightweight and mechanically efficient as possible so boaters can get the most out of every drop of fuel.

Go further, for less

Fuel efficiency matters whether you’re boating for work or pleasure. Our Lean Burn Fuel Control Technology predicts fuel needs according to operating conditions, then delivers the optimum fuel/air mixture to the engine. The system is designed to save fuel both at low speeds and up into the cruising range.

Lean Burn models: DF300AP/250AP, DF200A/AP, DF175TG/150TG, DF140A/115A/100A, DF90A/80A/70A, DF60A/50A/40A, DF30A/25A, DF20A/15A

Ultimate reliability

Our outboard motors are used by commercial operators such as Sea Start, Solent RIB Charter and Marine Harvest, which is testament to just how reliable they are. They have also successfully powered RIB expeditions and challenges around Britain, Ireland and to the Arctic.

Exclusive theft deterrent – Free Datatag security system (DF25A – DF300A)

The Suzuki Datatag kit is a brand new security marking product developed specifically for outboard motors in partnership with Datatag.

The kit, once installed is not only the No.1 theft deterrent for your Suzuki outboard reducing the chance of damage to your outboard and boat but, in the event of a theft also acts as a powerful tool for recovery.

The easy and quick to install Suzuki Datatag kit will give your outboard a unique “fingerprint” that can be established, by the police or the insurance industry, in a number of different ways. Even if the outboard motor has been modified or painted.

The unique identity is virtually impossible to remove, however hard a criminal may try due to the various methods of marking, all included in the kit.

Available free on all models from 25hp – 300hp.

Clean & quiet operation

Our outboards are all incredibly quiet which means that you don’t have to shout to have a conversation whilst out on the water. Don’t worry though, our large horsepower models still have a satisfying roar when you accelerate!

You can enjoy your time out on the water with a clear conscience, as our advanced four stroke technologies deliver cleaner, more efficient operation that conforms to the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) Standards and has received a three star rating from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Back up & support

We have worked hard to build a nationwide network of trained, professional Suzuki dealers, and you can expect to receive expert service and advice from our professional sales and service staff across the country.

To find your local dealer visit the Dealer Locator Page.

Durability

Salt or fresh, water is tough on engines, so we protect yours using our own innovative Anti-Corrosion Finish. An epoxy primer undercoat, applied directly to aluminium to provide maximum bonding, is followed by black metallic paint, topped off with a clear acrylic resin layer.

Multiple award winners

Our outboards have received numerous awards for innovation. This success recognises our vast experience in developing technology (for motorcycles, ATVs and automobiles, as well as outboards) and precise understanding of our customers’ needs.

Peace of mind – warranty

Leisure use in the UK - 5 years

If you buy your Suzuki outboard in the UK and register it for leisure use in the UK and Ireland then you are eligible for an additional 2 years on the standard pan-European warranty, giving you a total of 5 years peace of mind.

Leisure use in Europe - 3 years

If you buy your Suzuki outboard in the UK and register it for leisure use in Europe, you will benefit from our 3 year pan-European warranty.

Commercial use in the UK -2 years or 1,000 hours

Outboards registered for commercial use in the UK and Ireland carry a warranty to a total of 2 years or 1,000 hours' use, whichever occurs first.

Commercial use in Europe - 1 year

Outboards registered for commercial use in Europe carry a warranty of 1 year.

The Suzuki warranty only applies to the outboards imported by Suzuki GB PLC and is subject to regular Authorised Suzuki Dealer servicing in accordance with the schedule published in the Owner's Manual but it does not affect your statutory rights.

 

Smooth precise control

We have developed our technology so you can be sure that our outboards give smooth, precise control with crisp, immediate shifting, particularly at low revs and when manoeuvring. Our sophisticated drive-by-wire system eliminates the friction and resistance of mechanical control cables. The system can be configured with single, twin or triple installations, and for dual stations. Combined with our Lean Burn Control System, it helps improve fuel efficiency over a wide operating range.

Applicable models: DF150/175TG, DF200AP, DF250AP & DF300AP

Maximum performance

Enjoy the power and torque of your Suzuki outboard brought to you using our Variable Valve Timing.

Our 2.9-litre inline four-cylinder engine incorporates an aggressive cam profile designed to deliver maximum output and performance from the engine at high rpm. Using our advanced Variable Valve Timing to vary the timing of the intake valves by optimising camshaft timing, our engineers have gained greater low and mid range torque from the engine, optimising power output across the entire operating range of the outboard. The system is controlled by hydraulic pressure from the oil pump and the process happens automatically so all you have to do is enjoy the power and performance.

Applicable models: DF300AP/250AP, DF250, DF200AP/200A & DF175TG/175

Efficient air-flow

High speed boating requires efficient airflow into the engine, as getting the right amount of air into the cylinder has a great impact on performance. High-speed operation typically requires a greater volume of air, low-speed less.

Our Multi-Stage Induction system meets these needs by utilisng two intake manifold pipes per cylinder to ensure the engine gets the right amount of air. At low rpm, air enters the combustion chamber through a longer, curved manifold pipe designed to improve combustion and boost low end torque. As rpm increases, the valves open on the direct intake pipes. Shorter and lacking resistance, these pipes allow a greater volume of air into the chamber, increasing the engine’s ability to breathe efficiently at high rpm resulting in higher power output during high speed operation.

Applicable models: DF250, DF225, DF200A/AP, DF175TG/150TG & DF175/150

Self-Adjusting Timing Chain

We have worked to perfect our outboards so they are simple to use, effective to run and maintenance-free. On every model from over DF40A, the timing chain runs in an oil-bath, so it never needs lubricating, and is equipped with an automatic hydraulic tensioner, so it remains properly adjusted at all times. Leaving you to enjoy more time on the water, instead of in the workshop.

Battery-less Electronic Fuel Injection

Quicker starts, smoother & cleaner operation, increased fuel efficiency and greater acceleration in all conditions – our battery-less electronic fuel injection is a  remarkably compact and lightweight fuel injection system designed to fit into our smaller outboards without adding unnecessary bulk or weight. What’s more, it operates without a battery and still delivers Applicable models: DF30A/25A & DF20A/15A

Suzuki Troll Mode

When you need to cruise at a constant speed it is easy with Suzuki Troll Mode, an optional extra on Remote Control models from over DF40A. This easy-to-use system lets you adjust engine speed in 50rpm increments, giving highly precise control at low revs. With its own tachometer and control switch, it works alongside our multifunction gauges and new ‘dual scale’ analogue gauges. (Suzuki Troll Mode System is originally equipped with Tiller Handle models from over DF40A).
