Because the Quebec area is rich in lakes and outboard motors are mainly small to medium-sized models, Suzuki Canada exhibited 11 small to medium-sized models, DF2.5 to DF140. In addition, 9 inflatable boats were displayed in packages with the Suzuki engines. During this show, 3 small boats and 25 Suzuki outboard motors were sold.
