[Benefits of V-Twin]
With its V-twin configuration, it gets more power than a traditional single cylinder engine which results to
- Quieter operation
- Lower Vibrations
- Cooler operating temperatures
- Cleaner fuel burn
[Low Fuel Consumption]
The engine’s high-power output comes from:
- Optimal layout of the combustion chamber,
- High compression ratio (9.3:1)
- Variable ignition timing which is set through digital CDI.
This also means that the fuel consumption of the GX690H is similar to that of fuel injection (FI) and with the simplicity of the carburetion ensures that running the engine is both easy on your pocket and the environment.
[Reliable & Durable]
The Honda GX690H V-Twin engine also boasts using a forged steel crankshaft, racing-inspired forged steel connecting rods and its improved cooling performance due to the new cylinder structure of the engine and the new shape of the high efficiency cooling fan. This results to the engine running cooler for longer, making it more reliable and durable.
[Easy Start & 17-amp Charge Coil]
The engine can start using an electric starter but for emergency situations the engine can be started manually by cranking. Because the engine can be started electrically it is equipped with a 17-amp charge coil which means fishermen can power their navigational and communication equipment such as radio, fish finder and lights.
