    Portable, Fuel Efficient, And Powerful

    For smaller 12' - 16' boats, the Honda BF8 is as convenient as you can get. At just 98 lbs. it's the first model to weigh less than most conventional 8 HP outboards. Yet it's all Honda, meaning quiet, reliable, fuel efficient, and loaded with features. All BF8 models come with fully regulated charging systems and harnesses. With the largest alternator in its class, you'll have plenty of power for all your electronics, even when trolling. Also features Auto Start Enrichment to ensure easy starting and quick warm-up. Add in shallow water drive and much more, and you've got the ideal combination of power and portability.


    Reliable, Efficient 4-Stroke Design
    World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.

    True 5-Year Warranty For Unmatched Peace Of Mind
    Honda's True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the first day as it is on the last.

    Ultra Low 3-Star CARB Emissions
    Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board's standards.

    4-Front Corrosion Protection System Fights The Elements
    A patented, "Double-Sealed" multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes, stainless steel technology, and waterproof connectors enhance corrosion protection.

    Longer Tiller Handle For Improved Control
    A convenient, longer tiller handle improves control and reduces steering effort. The extended handle is made of a lightweight composite, increasing its durability while decreasing the motor's weight.

    PGM Ignition For Optimal Operation
    A reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire RPM range. This provides optimum overall operation.

    Engine Alert System Keeps You Informed
    The integrated warning system protects the engine from severe damage due to low oil, over-revving, and overheating.

    Best-In-Class High-Output Charging
    Electric start BF8 models offer an amazing 12 amps at only 3000 RPM. This helps to maintain the battery charge or keep electronics going, even at trolling speeds.

    Lightweight, Rounded Design
    Easy to transport, BF8 is perfect for small boats, dinghies, or auxiliary. The ergonomic design is rounded to avoid catching fishing line.

    Auto Start Enrichment For Easy Starts
    Auto Start Enrichment acts as an automatic choke. Just like a fuel injection system, it automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for quick, easy starting and warm-up.

    Pendulum Mount System For Smooth Operation
    Honda's exclusive triangulated rubber mount system absorbs vibration and provides unbelievably smooth operation.

    EZ Steer Friction Control
    A unique lever design allows you to precisely adjust steering tension for improved control and comfort.

    Shallow Water Drive
    An innovative shallow water drive feature lets you tilt the motor up, allowing you to easily operate in shallow areas. Shallow water drive greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.

    Up Front Tiller Controls For Convenient Shifting
    The convenient front-mounted shift lever allows fingertip shifting. The Twist Grip Throttle & Tensioner minimize driver fatigue.

    Integrated Carrying Handle For Easier Transport
    An integrated carrying handle makes transporting the engine a breeze. The convenient, foldaway carry handle is situated at the exact top/bottom balance point of the engine. This means the engine carries more easily in a level position.

    Positive Lubrication For Better Durability
    A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
