Mid range E-Tec and Verados

Remind me, what are the hp options for mid range engines planned and when do they come out? I think both BRP and Merc are going to be doing 135 - 150 sometime soon if not already.

Yes it's quite light for a 4-stroke considering the 200HP E-tec is only 1KG heavier at 238 kg/524 lbs. If I were buying one right now I think it would be the 175 Verado depending on the RIB, maybe two of them.

The E-Tec 115 and 130 are V4's but the 150 & 175 are V6's. V6's will most likely be 45KG lighter than the Verado's.

If you are getting 2 Veradoís thatís 90 kg extra weight and probably also some extra liters fuel consumption (especially from mid-range till WOT).

What boat is it going to be? Because if you go for twin Veradoís, thatís almost 500 kg hanging on the back of your boat !

Can't afford a 7m+ RIB at the moment but I like the Rayglass and Zodiac Hurricane 733 hull. I would never buy a CZ7, maybe something similar for a more reasonable price. I'll be waiting for 4 years before I can buy one but it will be worth the wait. Maybe I could put one on the back of my 3.85M RIB

Check the link
115 to 200 available as V4s. So you can have a V4 or V6 200hp. Gotta be lighter than a Verado.

Not a big deal but I think you misread the article, I copied it below, you are still correct regarding weight even the V-6's will be lighter but not by much maybe 45KG, the only way the Verado can produce 175 from an I-4 is the supercharger:

In addition to the mid-range engines, the Evinrude E-TEC line will now be available in in-line 2- cylinder 40, 50, and 60-hp; in-line 3-cylinder 75 and 90-hp; (V4 115 and 130-hp); (V6 150, 175, and 200-hp); (V6 200, 200 HO, 225, 225 HO, and 250-hp models.) These industry-leading direct injection engines offer low maintenance, exceptionally low emissions and sound, durability and high power in a unique design.
