SUZUKI UNVEILS DF115BG & DF140BG 4-CYLINDER OUTBOARDS

Suzuki Marine is recognized worldwide 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 today's global unveiling of Suzuki's new-for-2021 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.

 

Enhancements to Suzuki's new DF115BG / DF140BG go far beyond the integration of drive-by-wire technology. An upgraded compression ratio of 10.6:1 helps these new 2.0-liter displacement outboards achieve better top speed and acceleration by improving thermal efficiency. Fuel efficiency has also been increased as compared to Suzuki's existing DF115A / DF140A models. Tests have demonstrated as much as 5% to 7% better for the DF140BG across mid-range to high-end cruising speeds. The new DF115BG has demonstrated up to 5%-6% better fuel efficiency at cruising speed.

 

Other improvements include a 40 amp alternator on both models that delivers improved output and better charging performance at low idle speeds - ideal for today's power-hungry fishing boats that spend a lot of time trolling. While much has changed under the cowl, some enhancements to the new DF115BG / DF140BG are obvious to the eye. The engine itself features a sporty, streamlined exterior design that looks great on center consoles, flats skiffs, pontoon boats, walleye rigs, bass boats and more. With 20-inch (L) and 25-inch (X) shaft lengths available, the new DF115BG / DF140BG outboards are an ideal power choice for a wide range of fresh and saltwater boats. Both new outboards boast new graphics and are available in Suzuki Pearl Nebular Black and new-for-2021 Super Cool White color schemes.

 

The redesigned cowl also incorporates a new air intake structure with improved water separation and a silencer-resonator system to attenuate engine sounds and provide a pleasant boating experience at all engine speeds/RPM.

To make routine maintenance easier, Suzuki made it possible to replace the oil filter simply be removing the upper engine cover. A new Oil Spill Catcher surrounding the oil filter mount allows for changing the filter without making a mess. Suzuki also added an easy access Water Detection Fuel Filter to help protect the engine against contaminated fuel. 

 

The DF115BG / DF140BG will start production in October 2020 as a 2021 sales program year. For the foreseeable future, Suzuki Marine will continue to offer the existing DF115A and DF140A four-cylinder 4-stroke outboards alongside the new models.
