Performance and Efficiency

  • BLAST® System
  • Large Displacement V6
  • VTEC®
  • Lean Burn Control®
  • Separate Dual Air Circuits
  • 4-Stroke design
  • Large Air Intake Silencer Reduces Noise - The design of the variable air intake system on the Honda BF250 also includes a large air intake silencer that reduces noise. The silencing effect results from a chamber being added to the intake passage, causing sound waves to interfere with one another - effectively quieting noise.
  • Advanced ECU predicts the user's operation - The technologically-advanced Electronic Control Unit (ECU) in the Honda BF250 can predict the operator’s shifting operation based on changes in engine speed and throttle position. In order to reduce the shifting load, the ECU actually controls the ignition timing to modify torque when the operator shifts from partial to neutral.
  • Oxygen (O2) and Knock Sensors - Oxygen (O2) and knock sensors help determine the correct fuel flow and ignition curve to maximize performance and fuel efficiency.
  • Balanced Engine - The 60° V6 fires every 60°, offering the best in balance and durability and providing smooth operation throughout the entire RPM range.
  • Tuned Dual Exhaust - Some competitor's exhaust tracks goes through the middle of the oil pan, pre-heating the oil. Honda's dual exhaust headers wrap around the outside of the oil pan. This reduces heat build-up, and increases engine efficiency and performance.
  • Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
  • Non-Linear Mounting System - Patented non-linear rubber mounts provide smoother operation at all engine speeds.
  • Counter Rotation - Improves efficiency, hull maneuverability and decreases driver fatigue.
  • Extreme Duty Gearcase - The BF250 features an all new high performance gear case designed to withstand the extreme duty cycles of law enforcement and military patrol boats. This combined with a new gear reduction ratio (2.00:1) and large range of propellers (up to 16 inch diameter) provides high levels of all around performance.

Reliability and Durability

  • Engine Alert - The ECM monitors vital engine functions and prevents engine damage by alerting the operator of:
    • Overheating
    • Water in Fuel
    • Low Oil PSI
    • Battery
    • Over-Rev
    • Critical Engine Function
  • Saltwater Protection - Honda has painted the interior cooling passages on the BF250. This process prolongs the engine's life in the harsh saltwater environment.
  • 2-Pass Cooling System - The unique cooling system maintains an even temperature on all cylinders. The incoming water passes through each aluminum exhaust manifold, then through the cylinder heads and back around the exhaust manifolds before entering the exhaust. This results in increased cooling efficiency and long-term durability!
  • Positive Lubrication - A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
  • Single Latch Cowl - A single front-mounted latch combines with 4 securing points to ensure a water-tight seal.
  • Sealed Starter - The starter motor is inverted into a sealed chamber that protects the starter drive from the elements.
  • 4-Front Corrosion Protection
  • Fresh Water Flushport - Flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.
  • Stainless Steel (Steering Arm, Tilt Tube and all Shafts)- Stainless steel components provide durability with long-term corrosion resistance.
  • Ultra Low 3 Star CARB Emissions
  • True 5 Warranty


Convenience and Ease of Use

  • NMEA 2000 Protocols
  • High Output Charging - The BF250’s charging system features a 90 amp "On Demand" belt-driven alternator with 60 chargng amps. This superior design reduces heat buildup and provides outstanding battery charging across the RPM range.
  • AMP+ for additional charging at idle - The BF250 has an industry-first feature, AMP+. At idle, when the engine senses a need for additional amperage, AMP+ automatically increases the rpm’s by 100 to produce an additional 9 amps. This feature helps prevent the draining of critical battery power when using multiple accessories, a concern when you’re fishing miles offshore.
  • Slim profile for dual engine applications
  • Spark plug maintenance cover - Assists in ease-of-maintenance of the spark plug. This window provides access to the spark plugs without removing the entire engine cover.
  • Built-In Pitot Tube - Built-in pitot tube in the gear case eliminates the need to drill holes in your boat for speedometer installation.
  • Available in 20-, 25- and 30-inch shaft models
