The best things come in small packages.

And that’s especially true with Honda’s BF2.3, one of the world’s lightest four-stroke outboards. The BF2.3 is so light, it rivals many two-stroke 2HP engines and electric motors, without the battery!

But just because it’s lightweight doesn’t mean we cut back on the power. The BF2.3 features 15% more power over its predecessor. Plus we added a 12% larger internal gas tank, which provides for about one hour of operation at wide open throttle. It’s a technologically advanced design that gives you power and performance – without sacrificing portability.

  • Reliable, efficient 4-stroke design: World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
  • More power - without sacrificing portability: With 15% more horsepower over its predecessor, this ultra light weight powerhouse produces surprising speed and maneuverability.
  • Lightweight and compact: The BF2.3 is incredibly light and easy to transport. Weighing less than 30 pounds, it's the ideal engine for dinghys, car-toppers and other types of small boats.
  • Precise Throttle Control: A twist grip throttle allows for precise throttle control. The throttle tensioner minimizes driver fatigue.
  • Forced air cooled engine - no water pump worries: The air-cooled block eliminates concern over clogged water pumps and debris being sucked into the powerhead, as well as reducing maintenance.
  • Ultra low 3 star CARB emissions - Environmentally concious technology: Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board's standards.
  • True 5 Warranty - 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.
  • Easy starting, maintenance free transistor ignition: Maintenance-free, high-energy output for quick and easy starts.
  • Easy to carry and install: A front mounted carrying handle provides superior portability and ease of installation.
  • 360° swivel steering - added manueverability: Provides excellent maneuverability in tight areas as well as full thrust in reverse (at 180°).
  • Centrifugal clutch - better performance: The centrifugal clutch maintains a smooth idle and when advanced, automatically engages the prop above idle speed. It's like having a neutral position.
  • Convenient fold down tiller: The BF2.3's tiller folds up or down for easy stowing.
  • 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.
  • Internal fuel tank - easier portability: With 12% more capacity over its predecessor, the BF2.3 now runs up to 60 minutes at full throttle on a tank of fuel. The internal tank facilitates easy removal and portability as a single unit.
  • Easy maintenance: Convenient oil fill and drain.
  • Steering friction adjustment: Allows you to adjust steering tension for ease in maneuverability.
  • Adjustable trim: Four manual settings ensure proper trim angle for maximum performance.
  • Shallow Water Drive: Allows you to run in shallow water and greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.
  • Propeller included: A shock resistant plastic propeller comes standard.
  • Carburetor drain screw for easy storage prep: Allows quick and easy draining of the carburetor's float bowl for extended storage periods.
  • Dual lockable transom clamps: Provides extra security when mounted to the transom.
  • Sheer and cotter pin keeper: The self-contained keeper stores two extra sets of cotter and sheer pins close at hand, so you'll be prepared if and when you need them.
