Variable valve timing

Variable Valve Timing is utilised on a number of Suzuki’s outboards to deliver exceptionally high performance across the outboard’s full operating range, while retaining the benefits that 4-stroke technology provides.

Variable Valve Timing is used to vary intake timing with the camshaft to optimise timing for low to mid-range operation. This allows the engine to deliver maximum power output across its entire operating range, producing greater low to mid-range torque, for powerful acceleration. The entire process happens automatically leaving you to enjoy the power and performance.
