World-leading outboard motor innovator Suzuki Marine has unveiled its new-for-2022 DF250SS V6 4-Stroke outboard, the new flagship of the company’s “SS” Sport Series of high-performance motors engineered to deliver extra kick for today’s performance-based boats including Bass, Bay and Shallow water applications. This new engine was previewed to anglers and the industry today during the 2022 Bassmaster Classic in Greenville, South Carolina. It will also be displayed at 2022 REDCREST in Tulsa, Oklahoma later this month.
The new DF250ATSS is the first SS Series outboard to feature compatibility with Suzuki’s state-of-the-art Suzuki Precision Control (SPC) electronic shift and throttle system that will integrate with the Suzuki’s Digital Pro-Pedal Foot Throttle. Suzuki SS outboards were created to bring powerful hole shot, strong mid-range pull and great fuel economy to anglers and boaters. Now, by integrating with Suzuki’s proven SPC system, boaters can add crisp, responsive shifting, silky smooth acceleration and sports car like operation to the mix.
In addition to Suzuki’s SPC integration, the new DF250SS features a new lower unit gear case with an asymmetrically designed skeg. This new design slices through the water efficiently for improved performance, while providing enhanced steering stability. Inside this streamlined case are powerful gears for delivering plenty of low-end torque and the ability to swing a larger propeller. More options include the newly updated Intake system, the updated Thrust Mount system to reduce engine vibration and deliver stable operation under high loads, and a new line of Watergrip propellers designed to enhance the overall performance. The new Suzuki Big-Block V6 engine design ensures that the DF250ATSS not only delivers exhilarating hole shot, but also eye-watering acceleration all the way to wide-open throttle.
Today’s premium performance boats need to look as good as they perform, the new DF250SS also includes a new revised cowling design that features additional louvers, upper cover grips and new updated “SS” graphics. Suzuki continues with the popular Matte Black color as well as Suzuki’s optional New White. It is available in 20” (L) and 25” (XL) shaft lengths to accommodate different boat styles.
