Suzuki introduces new outboard models for 2022

Suzuki is introducing three new models to its range in the form of the DF140B, DF115B and the DF100C. These new outboards are mechanically controlled and replace the out-going DF140A, DF115A and DF100B models.

These new additions to the Suzuki outboard range provide an upgraded compression ratio of 10.6:1 that the company says gives better top speed and quicker acceleration, as well as increased fuel economy through improved thermal efficiency.

These new outboards also include a 40amp alternator, which is claimed to deliver improved output and battery charging at low idle speeds. A redesigned cowling incorporates a new air intake structure with improved water separation and a silencer-resonator system that is said to provide a more pleasant boating experience at all engine speeds.

To make routine maintenance easier, the oil filter can be replaced by removing the upper engine cover. To further increase ease of maintenance, the hole for the oil level gauge has been widened to 15mm which allows a larger oil change hose to be used. In addition, a new oil spill catcher on the filter mount prevents spillages, and a new easy-access water detection fuel filter helps protect the engine against contaminated fuel.

Suzuki says the DF140B, DF115B and DF100C provide heavy-duty performance and long-lasting durability in a lightweight, mechanically controlled package. It’s reported they are also the first four-stroke outboards to utilise an oil cooler, ensuring that all horsepower is available in any conditions.

Mark Beeley, head of marine & ATV for Suzuki GB says: “The new DF140B, DF115B and DF100C models are the latest in a long line of our innovative, lightweight and fuel-efficient four stroke outboards that give customers the power, performance and reassurance that they need for a wide variety of boating activities.”
