Suzuki 8hp Outboard - Pennine Marine's Review
Info Block Description: 

This Suzuki DF8 is a good, well-built and reliable 8hp outboard engine. It is a simple and straightforward four stroke 8hp outboard engine, well-built and of good quality.
 
However the 8hp outboard engine category is becoming less popular than it used to be, with the majority of potential DF8 customers now trading up to either the Suzuki 9.9hp engines, or to the 15hp engines. This trading up is simply because the 9.9 hp engines and the 15hp outboard engines offer more power at (proportionately) very little extra money and at an almost identical carrying weight.  
Also a potential customer for any 8hp outboard should consider whether they want a Suzuki 9.9hp: 15hp or 20hp model: as these now have fuel injection as standard.
