New Generation Fuel Injection System
These are the first outboards in their respective classes to offer fuel injection, and the DF20A/15A engineering team did an incredible job designing the outboard without adding unneeded bulk or weight. All new components, including the inline high-pressure fuel pump, fuel cooler, vapor separator, fuel injectors, and a new throttle body, were designed as compact and lightweight as possible. The entire system was designed to fit in as little space as possible. The system operates battery-less, which is another industry first in the 14.7kW (20PS) and 11.0kW (15PS) class. While fuel injection systems normally require battery power to deliver quicker starts, smoother running performance, and more acceleration in all conditions, Suzuki’s Battery-Less system does this all without the need of battery power.
Light Weight & Compact
To create as light and compact an outboard as possible, our DF20A/15A engineering team focused heavily on reducing the size and weight of each part and component, looking to create the smallest, lightest parts possible without compromising their integrity. Their success delivered an outboard that is the lightest in the 4-stroke 14.7kW(20PS) class - about 5% lighter than the closest competitor.
Superior Fuel Economy – Suzuki’s Lean Burn Control System
First introduced on our DF90/80/70, the Suzuki Lean Burn system is an intelligent system that monitors engine performance and operating conditions to predict fuel needs and deliver a leaner fuel mixture to the engine. The system delivers remarkable improvements in fuel economy over the engine’s entire operating range. This system is found on nine Suzuki models from the new DF15A up to the flagship DF300A, providing boaters with top-level fuel economy at all operating speeds.
Easy to Use
In addition to better fuel economy, the fuel injection system makes starting the outboard easier and more dependable in nearly all operating conditions or environment. While our carburetor models are some of the finest outboards available, fuel injection makes the DF20A/15A operate even smoother with reduced engine vibration.
Easy Start Recoil Starter
While fuel injection makes starts easier, the DF20A/15A engineering team designed a starter with a very light recoil load that requires less pull strength. Requiring much less effort to pull the starter makes starts exceptionally easy for almost everyone.
Suzuki’s Anti Corrosion System
Suzuki protects the outboard’s exterior from harmful corrosion with its own specially formulated anti-corrosion finish. Applying the finish directly to the outboard’s aluminum surface, allows maximum bonding of the finish to the surface to increase durability and help protect parts that are constantly exposed to saltwater.
Cleaner, Efficient Operation
Suzuki’s advanced four-stroke technology delivers cleaner and efficient outboard operation that conforms to the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) - Directive 2003/44/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, and have received “Three-Star Ultra Low Emission” ratings from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
