Power and performance come at a cost, that being weight. So when it comes to selecting an outboard for your boat, the balance of power and weight becomes an important issue in making the right choice. Until now, powering your boat with a 147kW (200PS) class outboard meant V6 power. That has all changed with Suzuki’s DF200A.

With the DF200A, our goal was to build an outboard that provides all of the power and performance of a 147kW (200PS) class V6 outboard using a lighter, more compact four-cylinder configuration. To deliver that level of performance our engineers used an inline four-cylinder engine with a 2.9-liter “Big-Block” displacement and a higher 10.2:1 compression ratio to generate impressive acceleration and low-end torque. A specially designed cowl and semi-direct air intake system were designed to provide cooler air to the tuned long-track intake manifold while a four valve per cylinder DOHC powerhead with Variable Valve Timing lets the engine breathe more efficiently increasing acceleration and top end speed. Added to that are a fuel injection system and Suzuki’s Lean Burn Technology for improved fuel economy.

The DF200A weighs 30kg less and is more compact than the V6 version. That, and its excellent balance when mounted on the transom make it the perfect choice for powering lightweight boats. Its also great for breathing new life into older boats still rigged with lighter two-stroke engines, giving them the latest in four-stroke technology and economy without sacrificing on weight or power.

Other features include a knock sensor, O2 sensor, and water detecting system to provide superior reliability. Found only on the DF200AP is Suzuki Precision Control digital control system, and Suzuki Selective Rotation for multi-engine applications. A convenient keyless start system that also functions as an immobilizer to help deter theft is available** with the DF200AP.
