Updated with a brand new look and whole new engine block – now larger and with even better performance.

Powered by Formula 1 technology the Honda 225hp outboard features VTEC™ for quiet powerful and fuel efficient operation. VTEC™ offers smooth and quiet idling, so quiet that the cooling water tell tale stream hitting the water is louder than the engine!

It also features BLAST™ (Boosted low speed torque) for rapid acceleration, ECOmo Lean Burn Control® for exceptional fuel economy at cruise and NMEA which enables all engine and fuel data to be viewed on a GPS screen.

Honda Large Horsepower engines use up to half the fuel of comparable two strokes and they make only half the noise.

  • BLAST™
  • Increased size and more powerful 3.6 litre V6

The Automatic Idle Charge system meets increasing demand from onboard electronic equipment. At idle speed, if electrical demand increases the alternator automatically produces a higher output.

‘On Demand’ 90amp, belt-driven alternator reduces heat build-up and provides superior battery charging capability – 48amp at trolling speed!

4-Front Corrosion Protection. A patented, ‘double-sealed’ multi-layered paint process. Additional sacrificial anodes have been added inside the engine and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.

The all-new gear case profile of the BF250 greatly enhances the hydrodynamics of the engine, increasing underwater efficiency.

A revised gear ratio of 2:1 has also been introduced. This ratio allows the engine to produce powerful thrust and propeller grip. These two features allow the BF250 to accept much larger diameter propellers.

An all-new Shift Load Control system reduces operator gear shift effort and facilitates smoother gear changing. When shifting from forward, reverse and neutral, the ECU analyses the engine speed and throttle position and in turn changes the ignition timing, modifying engine torque.

As a testament to their quality and reliability, all Honda engines come with a SEVEN year, non-declining, non-commercial warranty or a THREE year commercial warranty. Shop around, you won’t find a better warranty set up than Honda Marine.

Digital Gauge Additions

To read fuel level, is needed if digital gauge. Customer must have a fuel sender in tank.
To read speed, is needed if no chartplotter on sounder, sounder needs to be NMEA2000 compatible.

Vibrastop Pads

V6NZ made Vibra-Stop backing pads. They are 15mm thick and are the ultimate in vibration reduction - nothing else comes close! Excellent memory retention - will not compress over a period of time resulting in a loss of clamping force between the outboard engine and the boat.

we recommended these, especially on Aluminum boats
