DF 140

Brief Summary

Suzuki says its DF140 has the best power-to-weight ratio of any 4-stroke in its class. It pumps out 140 horses, yet weighs just 410 pounds ready to rig. That's lighter than a competitive 130 4-stroke and even a 2-stroke 135! What's that mean to you? Speed! The less weight you haul around, the faster you go. And no 140 weighs less than this one according to the company. Suzuki stuffs a lot of go-fast technology into that 410 pounds. We're talking about things like dual overhead cams, four valves per cylinder, tuned intake manifold and 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system. An overall 2.38:1 gear ratio lets the DF140 turn a big prop for instant acceleration and phenomenal top-end performance. Even the engine cover features a large induction port to provide maximum airflow for maximum power. Click HERE to find your local Suzuki dealer.
