It’s extremely low-maintenance, with a transistor ignition that makes it easy to start…and a forced-air cooling system that eliminates the need for a water pump. Play the [video] to see the two versions of the BF2, and the key features that make it the right choice for a wide range of customers.


Lightest 2HP 4-stroke
Only 4-stroke in its class, lighter than most 2-strokes.

Centrifugal Clutch
Models available with centrifugal clutch that is able to maintain a smooth idle and then, when the throttle is advanced, automatically engage the prop above idle speed. It’s like having a neutral position.

Transistor Ignition
Maintenance-free, high-energy output for quick and easy starts.

Forced Air Cooled Engine
No water pump to worry about being plugged with weeds or damaged by sand. Runs in the shallows!

360° Swivel Steering
Provides excellent maneuverability in tight areas. More reverse thrust!
