Suzuki have announced that the accumulated global production figure for their outboard motors has reached four million – 57 years after launching their very first outboard motor, the D55, in 1965.
Suzuki’s current line-up spans the lightweight and portable DF2.5 right up to the dual-propeller DF350. Their mid- to large-horsepower models are manufactured at their Kosai plant in Shizuoka, Japan, while their small, portable outboards are produced at their subsidiary facility in Thailand. The four millionth outboard produced was the brand-new DF350AMD model, which has an integrated steering system and started production in October.
Toshihiro Suzuki, President of Suzuki, said: ‘Since the start of production in 1965, Suzuki have strived to introduce new technologies aimed at producing outboard motors marked by uniqueness, and this has led to the four million accumulated production. We are sincerely grateful to all the fans of Suzuki outboard motors, and we will continue to provide marine products and services that are needed by the people and society through our marine business activities.’
