Suzuki Marine Introduces Innovative DF15A and DF20A with Battery-Less Fuel Injection and Lean Burn Control System

June 27, 2012

Suzuki Marine introduces two new Next Generation models to their line of World Class 4-Stroke Outboard Motors, the All New DF15A and DF20A.


Once again, Suzuki Marine is leading the industry with the first outboard motors in this class to feature electronic fuel injection without the need for battery power. Boaters with smaller boats can now enjoy the benefits of fuel injection, including easier starts, more responsive acceleration and smoother performance, without the added weight and complications of a battery. 

Fuel injection system components (high pressure fuel pump, throttle body and small fuel cooler, vapor separator and fuel injector) have been completely redesigned by Suzuki Engineers to be as compact and lightweight as possible.  The Electronic Control Module (ECM) was designed to operate without auxiliary battery power, while still delivering complete fuel system monitoring and control functions.

To further enhance the performance of these models, both feature Suzuki Marine's Lean Burn Control System.  This proven system monitors engine operating conditions to predict and deliver the most efficient fuel/air mixture and results in noticeable improvements in fuel economy over the entire operating range.

"At Suzuki, we believe every boater deserves the very best in technology, performance and fuel economy," said Larry Vandiver, senior director of marine sales for Suzuki Marine. "These new outboards are sure to be popular, especially with those who are buying a boat or motor for the first time."

With all these enhanced features, the Suzuki DF15A and DF20A weigh just 97 lbs. (short shaft/manual start models) making these outboards the lightest in their class.  In addition, they are far more compact and take up less space on the transom. Now, boaters owning small fishing boats and skiffs, pontoons boats and RIBs can enjoy new levels of performance, power and fuel economy.

These "New Generation" Suzuki Outboards meet the US EPA standards for emissions and have received the Three-Star Ultra Low Emissions rating from the California Air Resource Board (CARB).
