New lightweight Suzuki DF20A
Suzuki announces the launch of a new fuel-efficient and high performance four stroke outboard motor – the all-new DF20A. This new model, which made its world debut at the Düsseldorf Boat Show, will be the first in its class to feature battery-less Electronic Fuel Injection. The new Electronic Fuel Injection system will also be combined with Suzuki’s Lean Burn Fuel Control system, which will result in a number of benefits for boaters such as; easier starts, more responsive acceleration, smoother performance and above all, greater fuel efficiency.
To achieve this, Suzuki engineers have designed a completely new fuel injection system for this model, which includes; an inline high-pressure fuel pump, a throttle body and small fuel cooler, vapour separator and fuel injector.
By designing these component parts to be smaller than those used on larger Electronic Fuel Injection engines (DF40-DF300) the overall weight of this new model has also been kept as low as possible.
According to Suzuki’s internal testing, this means that at just 44kg the new model will be the lightest and most compact outboard in their class.
The compact size and light weight of the new DF20A makes it an ideal power match for a wide variety of boats, including; small RIBs and tenders, day boats for in-land waterways and small fishing boats to name but a few. In particular, this new outboard will be ideal for entry level boating.
Yasuharu Osawa, Group Manager for Suzuki’s Marine Division in Europe, said “We are delighted to be able to bring this new model to the market. They are an excellent addition to our existing range of portable outboards and by making them more lightweight and fuel-efficient than our competitors’ I am confident that they will be extremely popular with boaters world-wide.”
