Delivering Superior Fuel Efficiency and High Performance In A Lightweight Package
Engineered to deliver fuel-efficient operation in a compact and light weight design, the DF60A utilizes many of the advancements that Suzuki has pioneered over the last decade. This three-cylinder engine with a four valve DOHC design is combined with Suzuki's Lean Burn Control System to deliver high-tech performance with efficient operation and top level fuel economy. New DF60A models also sport the optional Suzuki Troll Mode System.
Suzuki engineers are known for creating some of the most compact four stroke outboards in their respective classes. With the DF60A, they started with a clean slate redesigning every part and component incorporating the knowledge and technical advancements gained over the last ten years to create even lighter, more compact outboards.
MAINTENANCE-FREE OIL-BATHED TIMING CHAIN
The only engine in its class to incorporate a maintenance-free, self-adjusting, oil-bathed timing chain to provide increased durability and maintenance free operation. A new oil pump design makes internal oil flow more efficient, keeping moving parts better lubricated while using less energy. The combined reduction in mechanical loss throughout the engine contributes to better fuel economy.
MECHANICALLY EFFICIENT DESIGN
Suzuki engineers looked for ways to reduce mechanical loss as a way to improve efficiency in the DF60A. A specially designed oil pump delivers greater mechanical efficiency allowing oil to flow through the lubrication system with less resistance. This, combined with reduced mechanical loss in other areas of the engine contributes to better fuel economy.
TILT LIMIT SYSTEM
The DF60A is equipped with a tilt limit system that is designed to protect the boat from damage that can occur when tilting the outboard. The system incorporates a tilt angle sensor that functions as both a tilt limit and trim sender and uses a step-free, continuous type limiter that makes installation of the outboard possible on nearly any type of boat.
SUZUKI EASY START SYSTEM
With Suzuki's Easy Start System, featured on the DF60A, all you need to do is turn the key and release. The starter system does the rest, staying engaged until the engine starts. Smoother and improved starts delivered by the Easy Start System offer more efficient combustion, and greater fuel economy.
MAXIMIZING FUEL ECONOMY AND PERFORMANCE
Suzuki's Lean Burn Control Technology optimises the fuel-to-air mixture throughout the engine's operating range to help maximise performance and fuel economy.
