There have been a few threads on this engine before...

Mercury 115 or optimax 150

Opti vs 4strokes

Very good, clean, reliable engine, and good on fuel too.

I am uncertain as to whether I'd have bought the Yamaha engine if it was out at the time, purely cos it weighs in a lot more than the Suzuki. Saying that though, the block itself is larger, so I'd guess a bit more torque, but more fuel useage?... not sure
