DF60A

Compact Design

Suzuki engineers are known for creating some of the most compact four stroke outboards in their respective classes. With the DF60A, they started with a clean slate redesigning every part and component incorporating the knowledge and technical advancements gained over the last ten years to create even lighter, more compact outboards.

Lean Burn Control System

To get the most out of every drop of fuel, Suzuki engineers developed the Lean Burn Control System on the DF60A, which enables the engine to operate on a lean air-fuel ratio or a thinner mixture of fuel. The system controls the air to fuel mixture by predicting fuel needs according to operating conditions. It delivers its benefits over a wide operating range providing significant improvements in fuel economy from low speed operation well up into the cruising range.

Tilt Limit System

The DF60A is equipped with a tilt limit system that is designed to protect the boat from damage that can occur when tilting the outboard. The system incorporates a tilt angle sensor that functions as both a tilt limit and trim sender and uses a step-free, continuous type limiter that makes installation of the outboard possible on nearly any type of boat.

Cleaner, More Efficient Operation

With Suzuki's Easy Start System, featured on the DF60A, all you need to do is turn the key and release. The starter system does the rest, staying engaged until the engine starts. Smoother and improved starts delivered by the Easy Start System offer more efficient combustion, and greater fuel economy.

Mechanically Efficient Design

Suzuki engineers looked for ways to reduce mechanical loss as a way to improve efficiency in the DF60A. A specially designed oil pump delivers greater mechanical efficiency allowing oil to flow through the lubrication system with less resistance. This, combined with reduced mechanical loss in other areas of the engine contributes to better fuel economy.

Self-Adjusting Timing Chain

Suzuki's self-adjusting timing chain is featured on the DF60A which is the first outboard in the 44.1kW (60PS) class equipped with this maintenance free feature. The chain is oil-bathed and features an automatic hydraulic tensioner that keeps the chain properly adjusted at all times for maintenance free operation.

Compact, Lightweight And Fuel Efficient – The DF60A

DOHC 12-Valve Engine

Suzuki's vast experience in designing and manufacturing four-stroke engines for motorcycle, automotive, and marine use is unrivaled. In drawing upon this wealth of knowledge, Suzuki engineers have designed an all-new inline three-cylinder engine with a compact dual overhead cam (DOHC) powerhead and four valves per cylinder. Effective use of advanced technologies provides the DF60A with high-tech performance, efficient operation, and excellent fuel economy.

Most Compact/Lightest Design

Suzuki has been an industry leader in compact four-stroke designs, and the DF60A lives up to that reputation. Suzuki engineers redesigned each part and component from the ground up, applying the knowledge and technological advancements gained over the last decade to produce an outboard that is the lightest and most compact in its class.

Suzuki's Lean Burn Control System Produces top level Fuel Economy

First introduced on the DF70A/80A/90A, Suzuki's Lean Burn Control System predicts fuel needs according to operating conditions allowing the engine to run on a more efficient fuel mixture through the use of a lean air-fuel ratio. Suzuki's Lean Burn Control System delivers its benefits over a wide operating range, providing significant improvements in fuel economy from low speed operation into the cruising range.

Large capacity 19A Alternator

The DF60A features a powerful 19A alternator designed to generate approximately 11.5A even at a low 1,000 rpm. That's enough power to keep an assortment of marine electronics operating all day long in most situations.

Multi-Point Sequential Electronic Fuel Injection

The original DF60A received the IMTEC (International Marine Traders Exposition and Convention) 1997 Innovation Award for, among other firsts and advancements, its pioneering utilization of Suzuki's Multi-Point Sequential Fuel injection. The DF60 uses this sophisticated, time-tested system to gather data from sensors located in key areas on the engine, process it with a 32-bit computer, which then calculates the optimum amount of fuel needed—all in real time. Along with smooth starts, this system delivers maximum operating efficiency resulting in excellent fuel economy and reduced emissions.

Tilt Limit System

The DF60AV/50AV feature a tilt limit system that helps protect the boat from damage that can occur when tilting the outboard. The design incorporates both the functions of a tilt limit and trim sender, and uses a step-free, continuous type tilt limiter that allows installation of the outboard on nearly any type of boat.
