Looking forward to this, they haven't made huge strides for a good few years now so I was anticipating this.

It's gonna be a RAVE!

I quizzed my local Evinrude dealer and the only thing he would say is that's it could be a Hybrid outboard and only available in the larger (e.g.150 HP and above)outboards.
He also said there would be one on display at the Melbourne Boat show which is on in about 2 weeks.

I can't personally see it being a hybrid as that would remove one of the etec's key selling points - weight. Plus, there's no gap in the power where torque fill is needed!
