The 4-stroke outboard motors, released in October 2016, were one of 50 marine products to be selected by the US magazine and the third Suzuki products to be selected overall.
Now in its forth year, the list names 50 of the best new or updated products released to the market which have significantly contributed to the marine industry and are selected from a range of marine products including boats, outboards and accessories.
Featuring a number of innovative and industry-leading technologies, the compact and lightweight DF150AP/DF175AP are equipped with a 2.9 litre “Big Block” in-line 4-cylinder DOHC engine and boast the largest displacement in their respective classes (2,867cm3).
They also deliver exceptional acceleration and low end torque, thanks to their 10.2:1 compression ratio, with the stand out feature of these outboards (and all AP models) being Suzuki’s Selective Rotation meaning vessels fitted with two or more motors can be configured for either regular or counter-clockwise operation.
Mr Sean Allen, National Marketing Manager Aust/NZ said it was great that these outboards were getting the recognition they deserved.
“The DF150AP/DF175AP high performance outboards feature our pioneering technology such as Lean Burn, Suzuki Precision Control, offset driveshaft and maintenance-free timing chains which demonstrate why there’s no outboard brand like Suzuki Marine,” said Mr Allen.
“With the added bonus of Suzuki’s Selective Rotation technology and unique 3D decals, these outboards are the ultimate choice for style, performance and power,” Mr Allen said.
