Honda's 8HP is perfect for aluminum fishing boats, inflatables, sailboats, or as a "kicker" for larger fishing boats. Attention to details like the pendulum mount, engine alert system and one hand starting design makes this 8HP stand out from the crowd. And because it's a Honda, you can expect long term durability and clean, quiet operation.

4-Stroke Design
World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.

Power Thrust Design (BFP)
A lower 2.33:1 gear ratio combined with a 10" x 6 1/2" Power Thrust 4-blade propeller creates 60% more thrust in reverse and 15% more in forward. The result is improved maneuverability and performance.
Reverse Exhaust Relief
Additional exhaust relief above the cavitation plate produces more thrust by allowing the prop to run in clean, exhaust-free water.
Auto Start Enrichment (ASE)
Standard on electric start models, Auto Start Enrichment automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for quick and easy starts and warm-ups.
Easy One Hand Starting
Working together, a built-in decompression release and digital CDI system set the ignition timing during start-up. Greatly reduces the effort required to pull-start the engine by hand!
PGM Ignition
A reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire RPM range, providing optimum overall operation.
Positive Lubrication
A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
High Output Charging
The BF8 provides 2 Amps at 1000 RPM and an amazing 12 amps at only 3000 RPM to maintain the battery charge or keep electronics going even at trolling speeds.
Lightweight Rounded Design
Easy to transport, BF8 is perfect for small boats, dinghies or auxiliary. The ergonomics look great and won't catch fishing line as easily
Pendulum Mount System
Honda's exclusive triangulated rubber mount system absorbs vibration and provides unbelievably smooth operation.
Engine Alert System
The integrated warning system protects the engine from severe damage due to low oil, over-revving and overheating.
Corrosion Protection System
A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
Fresh Water Flushport
Flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.
Longer Tiller Handle
Made of a new lightweight composite, the BF8’s longer tiller handle improves control while reducing steering effort.
Up Front Tiller Controls
A convenient front-mounted shift lever allows fingertip shifting while a Twist Grip Throttle & Tensioner minimize driver fatigue.
EZ Steer Friction Control
Unique lever design allows operator to precisely adjust steering tension for improved control and comfort.
Shallow Water Drive
Allows you to run in shallow water and greatly reduces the risk of engine damage.
Power Tilt
Conveniently tilts the engine out of the water.
Integrated Carrying Handle
Situated at the exact top/bottom balance point of the engine, the BF8’s integrated carrying handle make transporting it a breeze.
Ultra Low 3 Star Carb Emissions
Environmentally friendly technology.
