BFT90

MID RANGE

Meet the versatile and dependable Tohatsu 90 hp four stroke outboard. In-line 4 cylinder SOHC delivers exceptional torque and power, while still weighing in at only 359 pounds, which makes the BFT 90hp one of the lightest motors in its class. The convenience is even built right into the engine with the built-in freshwater flushing system, for easy routine flushing. To protect against corrosion, the BFT 90 hp has a “Double Sealed” multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all of which work to enhance your motor’s corrosion protection. Reliability and durability come standard on this high-power, proven-technology four stroke outboard engine.

FEATURES

BLAST® System - improves acceleration at low speeds

Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST®system, advancing the ignition curve quickly. This will greatly improve "Hole Shot".

**Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.

Variable Valve Timing and Lift Control

system provides power where and when you need it. This gives you a broader, flatter torque curve and smooth power delivery throughout the engine's operating range. The result is a superior combination of power, torque and fuel efficiency.

Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection [PGM-FI]® - Powerful Performance

Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air response with superior fuel efficiency.

Dual Stage Induction - Breathing easier improves performance

BFT 225 has a unique variable intake system which optimizes air flow to match the engine's speed. The results are maximized combustion efficiency, increased torque, and superb fuel economy.

4-front 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.
