Suzuki introduces an all new lightweight 25PS (18.4kW) Four-Stroke Outboard

October 4th, 2008 · No Comments

Suzuki engineers have designed an all-new light weight 25PS (18.4kW) 4-stroke outboard that weighs just 69kg (152lbs.)*. Its lighter weight and economical operation make it ideal for boaters and fishermen who need a powerful compact outboard. In addition, this new 4-stroke fully complies with 2006 EPA and forthcoming EURO 1 standards (EU Directive 2003/44/EC), and carries the California Air Resources Board (CARB) 3-star Ultra-Low emissions rating.

V-Twin Powerhead
This new 25PS (18.4kW) model is the first Suzuki 4-stroke outboard to feature a V-Twin powerhead. The 70ยบ v-bank angle is wide enough to minimize vibration without the use of a counterbalance system, and narrow enough to provide a compact profile on the transom.

The V-twin layout also moves the center of gravity forward, compared to an inline powerhead. This allows for better balance on the transom, and makes the engine easier to tilt. Since engines in this category typically are tilted by hand, a little bit of help is a big advantage. Twin cylinders, each displacing 269cm 3 (total displacement is 538cm 3) combined with 2 overhead valves per cylinder, produce maximum power at 5,000 rpm. The engine uses a single carburetor for easy maintenance and lighter weight. Aluminum block and aluminum connecting rods contribute to the lightweight design.
