Easy to transport

Ultimate portable power

Not only does the BF2.3 pack enough punch to push a boat out to sea, it's light enough to be carried back to the car. Thanks to the ergonomic carry handle fitted to each engine, the BF2.3 can be taken virtually anywhere. Despite the engine's size, the BF2.3 boasts all the benefits of Honda's advanced four-stroke technology, its lightest 2.3hp four-stroke available - even lighter than most two-stroke outboards.

Low maintenance

Thanks to the transistor ignition, you’ll get maintenance-free, high-energy output for quick and easy starts with the BF2.3. The forced air-cooled engine also means there is no water pump to worry about being plugged with weeds or damaged by sand. The BF2.3's Shallow Water Drive also allows you to run in shallow water and greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.
