Suzuki Marine is globally recognised for making advanced technology and features available to boaters of all types - not just those who run the largest, highest-horsepower outboards. This tradition continues with the introduction of Suzuki's latest generation DF115BG and DF140BG 4-stroke outboards, the first in their class to offer all the advantages of drive-by-wire technology. By bringing its proven drive-by-wire technology to its 115HP and 140HP in-line four-cylinder models, Suzuki is providing simplified rigging for a wide range of boat builders, along with silky smooth shifting, instant throttle response, enhanced performance and superior fuel efficiency. The reliability and precision control of Suzuki's drive-by-wire technology has been proven for years on Suzuki's popular 150HP through 350HP models. DRIVE BY WIRE - Operation from the remote control is delivered to the outboard via an electric signal instead of the traditional mechanical control cable design. INCREASED COMPRESSION RATIO - The compression ratio has been increased from 9.7:1 to 10.6:1 to achieve greater top speed and acceleration produced by the 2.0-litre displacement inline four-cylinder engines. Lean Burn fuel efficiency has also been significantly improved compared to the outgoing “A” series models. Tests have demonstrated as much as 10% improvement across mid-range to high-end cruising speeds.
