Why no 2 stroke, just out of interest?

Both fantastic engines

The Honda has better access to it's serviceable parts, but the Suzuki is quieter and slightly more frugal.

Edit: I would go for the Honda, but that is because they are bomb-proof and that matters round 'ere!

Every dealer ive talked to has advised me to go 4 stroke, pretty much for economy I guess. To be honest im only going on there word, I dont really know enough about boating to be honest. I know the 2 stroke would be lighter too. Also 2 strokes seem to be way over priced here.

Both the df and the bf are the exact same price too.

Try jet product ltd for a price on an etec. I found that I got my 60 hp etec for approx 3,000 euro cheaper than I could in the REp of Ireland.

Is the Honda 90 fuel injection now or still carbs?. If carbs, then I'd def go Suzook. I've had both Honda 50 and Suzook 90 in the past. Not much to choose between them but the Suzuki was a more advance engine electronically and no silly carbs to balance.
