After a period of relative “stagnation,” the market for small transportable outboards (ideal both as respect engines and for tenders) has begun to move again.
Taking the first step Suzuki: at the Dusseldorf Motor Show we could see its new three models DF6A, DF5A and DF4A.

The salient features of these motors are their low weight (23.5 kg), ease of use and transport (thanks to two carefully placed handles), quiet operation, and a revamped look compared to the Japanese manufacturer’s previous models. Suzuki engineers also paid special attention to the various stowage options to which these kinds of engines are often subjected. For this reason, they have developed a feeding and lubrication system that allows the engine to be stored on the three sides: right, left, and front, without having to worry about oil or fuel leaks. The new forced lubrication system uses an additional oil passage made to effectively lubricate the head, crankshaft and connecting rods. In addition, the introduction of an oil filter on engines of similar size increases the reliability of the engine itself.

The new fuel drop system no longer makes it necessary to fill and empty the fuel line. In addition, the new self-recoil start system requires minimal effort, and once in motion, the new tilt system makes all operations simple, also improving engine operation. Quietness of the engines is ensured by the adoption of the offset crankshaft, an exclusive feature of the Suzuki range, which results in lower vibration and improved operating efficiency. The new babies in the range are also equipped with Suzuki’s corrosion protection system. A coating applied directly to aluminum surfaces that can increase both the protection of metal parts and the seal between the different layers leading from the metal to the exterior paint.
