Honda BF 6 outboards are light, compact and their foldaway handles make them ultra-portable. They’re perfect for inflatables, dinghies and skiffs; and they make great ‘kicker’ motors for larger fishing vessels and sailboats.

Fast fun to go
If you work on the water or just want to enjoy some free time, the light BF 6 6 HP motor will do the job every time.
Be ready when the water calls! Sitting in your inflatable or small boat, gently rocking in the water, real fun is just a short pull away on the starter cord. When the quiet 4-stroke spins into life, just roll on and feel the power as you’re quickly lifted up on to the plane. This is what you’ve been waiting for… good times on the water!
Plenty of it too. And with a reputation built on reliability, superior fuel-efficiency and low emissions, your boat isn’t complete without a BF6. The light 4-stroke engines are easy to get going, and feature Programmed Ignition (PGM IG), so when you start your Honda – even from cold – it will never let you down.
The optional Power Thrust propeller is easily interchangeable for use on heavier and larger displacement boats.
Underneath that slim silver exterior is a masterpiece in marine engineering.
The Honda BF 6 is faster and quieter than any other outboard. It has the highest acceleration in all speed ranges and the lowest trawling speeds, e.g. when fishing.
The motor features a waterproof, digital ignition system for optimal combustion.
No other four-stroke comes close to the BF 6 in terms of power, noise and performance.
Easy to operate
The motor has a large forward mount shift / throttle control lever with soft-grip handle and twist-lock.
Safe at sea
You need a motor that won't let you down, especially on longer journeys. That's why the BF 6 comes with a range of safety and alert features, such as a rev llimiter, and alarms to warn you if the engine overheats or oil pressure changes. So you'll always feel safe on the move, wherever the water takes you.
Light and easy
Not only is the BF 6 extremely light, it's also easy to operate, making it perfect for dinghies, RIBs and tenders.
The engine has a decompression system for easy starting. This makes the engine much easier to turn over with that initial pull if you have the manual recoil type.
In forward motion (A) the propeller will drive normally through water, but in reverse it's a different story – unless you have a Honda. On other outboards, the propeller will turn in exhaust bubbles and wont ‘hook up’ with the water. The unique reverse exhaust relief system directs the exhaust bubbles away from the propeller (B), so that it can 'grip' the water – instead of air. The result is instant reverse response with much finer control.
The light engine is easy to tilt up in stages. Lifting up or down enables you to manually trim the boat to give you maximum performance and fuel efficiency. It also stops you from damaging the propeller blades when you find yourself near rocks or the water’s edge.
The engine has a forward mount shift lever for fingertip gear changing. It's so much easier to operate and better located than on other outboards, whether you're left or right-handed. Together with a soft-grip throttle handle and a twist-lock, it’s effortless. You can just roll on and off the power all day long (B), or lock it off (A) – just like cruise control.
With its stunning silver finish you’ll see right away it’s a Honda. Fixed to the back of the boat and in the water, it looks great as the surrounding colours are reflected in the finish. Sleek design and sculpted lines run all the way down to the super-slim hydrodynamic gear case, meaning less drag and better fuel economy when you’re really going for it.
The BF6 has foldaway handles built-in, positioned exactly on the point of balance to make them really easy to transport. Even carrying them around they look fantastic.
