Cheap??? Didn't think mine was, particularly
. Replaced my Merc 90 4s with a Honda 90 last year. Chose it mainly because of local dealer availability - and also because almost all the hundreds of outboard powered boats the fish farms use are Honda powered. Also the Easdale ferries use them and if you saw the way they're treated (out of necessity, not abuse) you'd know they can take some stick.
Very pleased with mine now that I'm getting the boat's trim right (big difference in weight) and the right propeller.
