Suzuki Marine and The Haines Group welcomes the changes to emissions standards in Australia following the introduction of The Product Emissions Standards Bill by the Minister for the Environment and Energy last week.

The Bill aims to reduce non-road spark ignition engines and equipment (NRSIEE) emissions, including those from carburetor and standard EFI 2-stroke outboard motors and is a great step in the right direction for the environment, according to John Haines of The Haines Group.

“We are happy to support the Bill and any steps the Federal Government introduces to improve Australia’s air quality and manage the environmental regulations associated with the marine industry,” said John.

“While Suzuki’s outboard range already feature technologies that provide a number of efficiencies and benefits to our customers, we will continue to work with and support the Government to reduce our environmental footprint in any way for a cleaner energy future,” John said.

The legislation will phase out the importation of new conventional 2-stroke outboards, including Suzuki’s DT 2-stroke range, however the new standards will not affect 2-stroke products that people already own and Suzuki will continue to supply spare parts, service and warranty to these customers.

Suzuki’s 4-stroke range includes a number of features and technological advances that provide better acceleration, better fuel efficiency and better value, making them a great choice for those in the market for a reliable, fuel efficient and high performing outboard motor.
