Advanced Technology for Performance

Resonator

The engine's exhaust system is a well-known source of engine noise, but another, often overlooked source is the intake manifold. Air being sucked into the intake manifold at high velocities can generate a harsh sound.

The DF200SS incorporates an air intake resonator that reduces such noise keeping operation exceptionally quiet.

Suzuki Lean Burn Control System

The Suzuki Lean Burn Control System is an intelligent fuel delivery system that achieves remarkable improvements in fuel consumption making fuel-efficient four-stroke outboards even more economical. Monitoring engine performance and operating conditions in real time, the system uses the 32-bit onboard ECM to predict fuel needs and deliver a leaner, more precise fuel mixture across the outboard's operating range.

Multi-Stage Induction (MSI)

Getting the right amount of air into the cylinder has a great impact on performance. High-speed operation typically requires a greater volume of air, low-speed less. Suzuki's Multi-Stage Induction system meets these needs by utilizing two intake manifold pipes per cylinder to ensure the engine gets the right amount of air. At low rpm, air enters the combustion chamber through a longer, curved manifold pipe designed to improve combustion and improve low-end torque. As rpm increases, the valves open on the direct intake pipes. Shorter and lacking resistance, these pipes allow a greater volume of air into the chamber, increasing the engine's ability to breathe efficiently at high rpm resulting in higher power output during high-speed operation.

VVT (Variable Valve Timing)

Variable Valve Timing is utilized on many of Suzuki's highend outboards to deliver high performance across the outboard's full powerband while retaining the benefits that four-stroke technology provides. The system starts with an innovative cam profile designed for delivering maximum output and performance at high rpm. Variable Valve Timing is used to vary intake timing with the camshaft to optimize timing for low to mid-range operation. This allows the engine to deliver maximum power output across its entire operating range producing greater low to mid-range torque for powerful acceleration. The entire process happens automatically leaving you to enjoy the power and performance.

Smooth Operation

Quiet Operation

Suzuki four-stroke outboards have long been noted for their exceptionally quiet operation. Suzuki engineers go to great lengths incorporating methods designed to keep outboard operation as quiet as possible. In a noise comparison test between the DF200SS and a competing 147kW (200PS) in-line four-stroke outboard, the results clearly show that the DF200SS runs quieter than its competitor.

Offset Drive Shaft

Pioneered by Suzuki, the use of the offset drive shaft on four-stroke outboards has long been utilized to reduce the size of the outboard. Found on all Suzuki four-strokes from the DF70A and up, this design positions the crankshaft in front of the drive shaft simultaneously moving the outboard's center of gravity forward. While the design contributes greatly to the outboard's overall compactness and increased power performance, it also moves the engine's axis of inertia, the point where engine vibrations are at a minimum, up over the upper engine mount, thus greatly reducing vibration. These outboards also incorporate two-stage gear reduction designed to take maximum advantage of the power produced by these high performance engines. Providing a final drive ratio of 2.50:1—the largest you can find in either of these outboard classes—it delivers powerful torque for quick acceleration and great top-end speed.
