Honda has sold 4-stroke outboard motors in the U.S. for forty years, leading the way in 4-stroke technology.
Why are 4-strokes better?
Four-strokes are approximately 50% more fuel-efficient than typical two-stroke outboard motors. No two-stroke oil is needed, reducing your costs even further.
4-stroke outboards are approximately 90% cleaner than typical 2-strokes. And 4-stroke motors do not release oil directly into the water.
Honda outboards have ultra-low emissions. All of our engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board’s standards for 2009.
4-Stroke outboards are up to 50% quieter than 2-strokes. Not to mention less smoke and smell. No two-stroke stink to ruin your day on the water!
