The all new Suzuki 9.9 HP EFI outboard motor model DF9.9BTHX2 is a 25 inch extra long shaft, electric start. The 128 lb. Suzuki 9.9 HP outboard engine is lightweight, compact and fuel efficient. This 2-cylinder 4-stroke is remarkably smooth and quiet. The Suzuki 9.9hp outboard is an excellent choice for skiffs, as well auxiliary power for sailboats and “kickers” for larger fishing boats and has a 3-star ultra low emission rating. Suzuki designed the 9.9hp with user-friendly features such as the multi-function tiller handle which controls steering, throttle, throttle tension, and power tilt. Additionally, a one-touch steering tension control lever located on the front of the engine allows the user to quickly adjust steering friction.
