That fact that some of the people questioning it own/operate the Suzuki 250…some with a lot of hours…and some, like me, with not so many hours but a keen eye on my wallet…must be some Scots blood in my ancestry (sorry JW ) should have given you a clue… don’t be so quick to judge, next time and you might get an easier ride… we all make mistakes….and… I think Mr Manning is amply qualified to know his arse from his elbow… and has plenty of certificates to back it up….

so if you are saying that people should not be so quick as to say somethings wrong, you think they would make sure of there facts first and perhaps ask questions before saying its wrong

i got a few tickets as well , it dont mean you know what happend on the day

Oh, I'm quite sure I don't want my engine revved to 8,100Rpm... and I'm quite sure I know how much fuel I put in on a regular basis… Ok.. not so regular for me last year, but… Cheers Stuart ….. likely to be more this year..… as are Ian, Dave and I assume Rene (never having met him... but he is obviously a man of great taste)..... and humour loses a little if you have to translate..... but, believe me Dave is well qualified to know his arse from his elbow...and I'm not referring to bits of paper issued by the RYA......

If at 5000rpm the Suzuki powered boat is travelling at approx 40 knots, and is only burning 24lph, it means it's doing about 7 nautical mpg.

Not bad at all!

Still doesn’t make it a reliable test, just by fitting a meter and hooning around the Solent doesn’t mean you are testing like with like, there are so many variables to consider when doing fuel consumptions tests Most reputable tests are done in very controlled conditions, temp, RH, course and driver will all have an effect.I really wish the press was more responsible

If you need any help…. Yer “arse” is the bit at the top of yer legs that stops ‘em falling of yer body…. And yer “elbow” is the bit in the middle of yer arms that allows you to drink yer pint easily….. ask Dave… he’s got loads of books on the subject….

ok here we go , it makes shite of diffrance to me who is best ,

but it was with the same driver , crew and course .
i have been involved in tests before. on lots of diffrent products .

and i take it quite personly when people say it was not fair.
now i would presume that theres not many of you driven all these engines , let alone on the same day ?? no matter how many tickets you got .

so if you look i gave you my opinion on each , i would buy the verado i love it , as soon as evindude sort the control box out theres will be brilliant .
suzuki i realy liked and if i was not a speed freak i would consider it .
yam is the best all rounder not the best but does each thing well .
and resale is number 1

I think it was a useful article and is getting the debate, which we all like.



It seems from the people who have these engines (Susi),

1) It does not rev to 8100, if the comment is true about the rev limiter, which i am sure it is. Jono does the manaul (what come with the engine )make the same mistake please?

2) It seems the Lph seem to have a wide variation with real life. Could this down to be boat setup or something else, there might be a root cause that will help Jono +co get more out of their wallet. The figures could be correct for that set-up
