Ivory White Outboard Commemorates Suzuki's Seventh Innovation Award

Suzuki Marine has a well-earned reputation for technological innovation, having been awarded more NMMA Innovation Awards than any other brand of outboard motor.  To commemorate that fact, the company is introducing a special limited edition DF60A outboard motor with an ivory white paint job.

Suzuki Marine received its second Innovation Award* (1st award for 4-stroke model) in 1997 for the DF60/70 outboards, the industry's first fuel-injected 4 stroke outboard motor. The remarkable models ushered in a new era in outboard engine technology.  Suzuki returned the following year with a new 40 and 50 horsepower 4-strokes, again taking the award and becoming the first company to win back-to back Innovation Awards.

In 2003 Suzuki introduced the industry's first 250 horsepower V6 4-stroke outboards to receive the 4th Innovation Award.  In 2006,  Suzuki introduced the DF300, the industry's largest displacement/horsepower outboard at the time, to claim the 5th Innovation Award.

In 2011, Suzuki resumed its winning ways, receiving the 6th Innovation Award for the next generation 40 and 50 horsepower 4-stroke outboards that introduced new technology; including Suzuki's Lean Burn Control system for improved fuel economy. Suzuki backed up this accomplishment in 2012 with the 7th Innovation Award for the DF300AP, the first outboard to offer standard or counter rotation with the flip of a switch.

"We are proud of each award," said Takashi Futamura, Marine Director for American Suzuki Motor Corporation. "They prove we are on the right track when it comes to designing advanced outboard motors that meet the evolving demands of boaters and boat builders everywhere."

The white commemorative DF60A will be available in limited quantities and only for a limited time. So make sure to contact your local Suzuki Marine Dealer and inquire about reserving one for your very own.

 

*Suzuki Marine received its first Innovation Award in 1887 for the Suzuki Exante 2-stroke 200 horsepower outboard motor. The engine was gold in color and was nick named the "Talking Engine" because it had a verbal warning system, much like today's cars and mapping direction systems.
