Combining Huge Power and Maximum Efficiency
The traditional single propeller design creates forward thrust, but also produces a significant amount of rotational energy. Our engineers have captured this wasted energy and turned it into productive power by utilising our revolutionary dual-propeller technology. They have solved the problem of the disruption of the water flow, caused by the larger gear case, typically needed by higher power engines. Years of research and innovation have gone into developing the technologies that significantly improve the way an outboard converts engine power into underwater thrust. The result is a revolution in innovation. We call it ‘GEKI’.
Development of Suzuki's first Contra-rotating Propeller
Development of Suzuki's first Contra-rotating PropellerOur engineers know that the shape of the lower unit and the design of the propeller have a critical impact on performance. The innovative contra-rotating propeller design provides more grip underwater, and because contra-rotating propellers distribute the engine's torque evenly over two propellers, the torque per propeller decreases and gear diameter can be reduced. A reduction in gear diameter has allowed the design of a smaller, and far more hydrodynamic gear case.
Advanced Gear Case Design
Advanced Gear Case DesignAt high speeds cavitation can cause significant losses in speed and grip. The New DF300B overcomes this with a highly advanced gear case design. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and countless test drives, have resulted in a breakthrough design that not only minimises resistance but also provides a highly efficient flow of water to the propellers.
Propeller Blade Design
Propeller Blade DesignA new three-blade/three-blade propeller set up has been developed that provides incredible acceleration and increased performance. In testing, this configuration recorded the highest speeds, even under heavy load and at high rotation speeds. The propeller blade geometry has also been optimised to work in the configuration resulting in incredible grip and acceleration across the range. An added benefit is exceptional stability, achieved because each propeller rotates in a different direction, balancing the turn.
High Reverse Thrust
High Reverse ThrustWith six blades rotating, the contra-rotating propeller produces a strong reverse thrust. The materials of the new DF300B gears are ultra-strong to withstand high loads and feature special heat treatment to give additional strength and reliability.
Unrivalled Big-Block Fuel Economy & Reliability
Unrivalled Big-Block Fuel Economy & ReliabilityThe ultimate Suzuki outboard is always aiming to be lighter and more powerful. The new DF300B features our proven 4.4 litre displacement block giving tremendous torque and making it the largest displacement V6 on the market today. Plus, with a compression ratio of 10.5:1 the DF300B also delivers impressive fuel economy and reliability.
Direct Intake System and Dual Louver System
Direct Intake System and Dual Louver SystemAchieving a flow of cooler, drier air directly into the engine is made possible by the unique combination of the Direct Intake System and the Dual Louver System. This revolutionary approach ensures a direct flow of air whilst eliminating water intake, even in the face of the most severe on-water testing. The Dual Louver System incorporates a double shield of blades, each one designed in a dog-leg shape. This system helps remove water from the air and prevents water to be taken into the cowl. As a result, intake air is free of moisture and kept close to ambient temperature.
Dual InjectorsInjecting fuel achieves two things, it atomises the fuel and it cools the cylinder. To provide the power and cooling needed, the fuel must be completely injected at precisely the right time and angle. The all new Dual Injector System uses two smaller injectors giving immense precision, improved atomisation and increased fuel efficiency.
Dual Water Inlet
Dual Water InletDual water inlet is a technology developed to cool the engine with minimal friction loss, using a combination of a small water pump and dynamic water pressure. Conventional outboards have water inlets on the side of the strut of the gear case. However, at very high speed, the water pressure at the strut surface is reduced, making it difficult to maintain stable water suction. The DF300B has water inlets on the tip of the gear case, which helps with water suction even when there is dynamic pressure caused by the movement of the gear case through the water.
Lean BurnOur innovative Lean Burn Control System was first introduced on the DF90A/80A/70A to great acclaim. The system predicts fuel needs according to operating conditions, allowing the engine to run on a leaner, more efficient air-fuel ratio. It delivers its benefits over a wide operating range, providing significant improvements in fuel economy from low-speed operation into the cruising range. In combination with Suzuki Precision Control electronic throttle and shift system, the operator can precisely, and smoothly, increase or decrease engine RPM for significantly improved fuel economy.
2-Stage Gear Reduction
2-Stage Gear ReductionThe DF300B outboard also incorporates a 2-Stage Gear Reduction which results in a large reduction gear ratio. It delivers powerful torque for quick acceleration and great top-end speed.
Offset DriveshaftSuzuki outboards are among the most compact outboards in their respective classes.
That’s due in part to our proven offset driveshaft system. This design places the crankshaft in front of the driveshaft through the use of intermediate gear reduction. In addition to providing an increase in power performance and adding to the compactness of the outboard, this system moves the outboard’s centre of gravity forward, resulting in better weight distribution and balance, better directional stability, and less vibration.
Advanced Variable Valve Timing System
Advanced Variable Valve Timing SystemOur engineers designed the 4.4-litre V6 engine with an aggressive cam profile that delivers maximum output and performance at high rpm. In coupling this cam profile with our advanced Variable Valve Timing (VVT), the DF300B delivers the additional torque that outboards need for accelerating in the low to midrange. VVT achieves this by adjusting the timing of the intake valves, allowing them to open before the exhaust valves are fully closed, creating a momentary overlap in the timing where both sets of valves are open. Using VVT, this overlap can be increased or decreased by altering intake timing with the camshaft resulting in optimum timing for low and mid-range operation.
Precision ControlThis technologically advanced system is a computer-based drive-by-wire control system that eliminates the friction and resistance of mechanical control cables. Operation is smooth and precise with crisp, immediate shifting that is most evident in the low rpm range and when manoeuvring around the marina and in close quarters. The system is configurable for single, twin, triple, or quad installations, and for dual stations.
Suzuki Troll Mode System
Suzuki Troll Mode SystemSuzuki’s Trolling Mode system provides finer control over engine speed at low rpms to keep your boat moving at a constant speed while trolling. When the system is engaged, revs are controlled with an independent control switch that adjusts engine revs in 50rpm increments over a range spanning from idle to 1,200rpm. The system includes a control switch, which can be mounted nearly anywhere on the console, and a tachometer, and is compatible with Suzuki’s SMIS digital gauges or the dual scale analogue gauges.
