Why a 55-degree V6?

A 55-degree bank angle creates a compact V6 outboard motor. The DF200, 225, 250, 250SS and DF300 all have a 55-degree block. Suzuki Engineers designed an all-new 55-degree V-Block, an industry first! This design is narrower, allowing the V6 engines to be mounted on 26" centers; great news for people who want to repower an older boat - most other outboard brands in this HP category will have to be mounted on 28", or greater, centers.
