Yep, had a look at them.

And of course like the Hondas they are big heavy lumps.

If only they'd go above 140HP with their 2-strokes.

Maybe I missed it but I didn't see any 2 strokes on the Tohatsu stand at SIBS. Do they still sell the TLDIs in the UK?

Speak to Mike Vincent at Southcoast Marine, he will know the score and is likely to have engines in stock.

Mike does have engines in stock, I spoke to him last week. The dealer support from BRP is pretty crap & has been for years. I feel that BRP aren't particularly interested in the UK market.

Nasher.
Their highest powered 2 stroke is a 115 TLDI and has been since the emission regulations were tightened up? You're possibly thinking of the carbed version?
