I would have said so looking at the spec and photos.
I know some of the smaller engines more or less have different hoods and price tags.

Yamaha have a large stake in Selva and Selva’s 4 stroke outboards are actually Yamaha models with a ‘Selva’ cowl (and a lower price!). If the Selva badge bothers you, you could always buy the Selva engine and a replacement cowl from Yamaha ...But then you might not be making much of a saving.

Yamaha decals instead of hood.

If Yamaha are anything like Tohatsu - then you'll need the serial number - as it's a special order part from a main dealer. Also quite expensive, for decals. I ended up sourcing a shop-soiled cowl which I machine polished. Now I have the original cowl and a set of genuine Tohatsu decals! Will sell later this year. Sorry for hijacking the thread!
