Honda has revamped its flagship BF200, BF225 and BF250 outboards with a new Progressive V Form design, improved corrosion resistance, streamlined maintenance, and expanded rigging options. The 200 and 225 hp models also now come with the same 3.6-liter V-6 engine that powers the 250. Among the many updates, the new cowling incorporates a dual-channel, indirect-air-circuit induction system for improved performance. The undercase now comes with a heavy protective rubber edge. Honda also reduced routine maintenance time with a larger-diameter dipstick tube, the integration of a water separator and fuel strainer, and relocation of the high-pressure fuel filter.
