Optimax 175 pro XS?

Are these available in the uk?

Looks like the Mercury equivalent of Evinrudes HO series.

in continental Europe the XS series is not available because of european emission limits. I suppose its the same in UK.

I haven't seen any 175s at all for a long time.

Hmm,

But I've seen various 200xs, 250xs around locally.
Perhaps available for "racing" or commercial operators.
