The Honda BF2.3 is a lightweight, easily transportable and ideal for small boats, dinghies and canoes. And quite frankly, it’s the engine that anyone can operate with no problem.
Honda enhanced the BF2.3 with improved carburetion to give you and your junior boaters more power – without increasing the engine weight. In fact, it offers the best power/weight ratio in its class. To ensure safe, trouble-free navigation every time you can rely on easy one-hand access to both the throttle grip and the gear clutch and an emergency kill switch that attaches directly to the operator’s wrist.
Hassle Free Navigation
The BF2.3 is the smallest 4-stroke engine equipped with a neutral point on the market, making it easy to stop the boat without having to kill the engine. Using the throttle grip, you can precisely adjust the engagement of the forward gear, giving you an accurate piloting touch. This comes in very handy when moving in and out of tight spots.
Lighter All Round
The BF2.3 is the lightest engine in the 3HP market, yet with all the benefits of Honda’s 4-Stroke technology. In addition, its equipped with an integral 1-litre fuel, and the engine is incredibly easy to remove and transport. And it runs up to 55 minutes at full throttle – all on a single tank of fuel!
