Suzuki announces development of new Joystick Control System
Suzuki Motor Corporation has announced that it has a new Joystick Control System in development. The announcement was made earlier this month at the 2013 Japan International Boat Show in Yokohama.
The new joystick system will integrate seamlessly with Suzuki Precision Control, its proprietary drive-by-wire system that is available on the Suzuki DF250AP and flagship DF300AP models.
During the Japan International Boat Show, the company showed a prototype joystick control as well as concept drawings of the system and its components.
According to Suzuki, this new system will provide increased confidence to skippers as they manoeuvre their boats in close quarters and will increase the appeal of boating to a younger, more tech-savvy demographic.
More information on Suzuki’s new Joystick Control System will be available later this summer. For information on Suzuki’s other innovative technologies and its full range of four stroke outboard motors from 2.5hp to 300hp, please visit www.globalsuzuki.com
