In 1964 everyone was producing two-stroke marine engines. But Soichiro Honda said “Because the water raises rice and the fishes live in the water, I don’t want to contaminate it…I don’t care if everyone else is making two-strokes – Honda has to make four-strokes.” The history of 4-stroke outboard engines can be told with the engines developed by Honda. Today we a leading manufacturer of 4-stroke marine outboards and inflatables, with a wide range from the compact BF2.3 through to the powerful new BF250 model.
