Assuming there both four strokes, from my limited experience I would say the Yamaha will have a higher purchase price and probably retain more of its residuals, I would think there is probably little between them in terms of fuel consumption. Its probably down to which dealer is closer to you and which offers you the best deal!

Power trim and tilt is quite expensive, and even more so to retrofit, you wouldn't want to be tilting up a four stroke lump manually too often as they are heavy.
Probabably, down to what instrumentation comes with each, length of warranty etc.
If it was me I would get the Suzuki, but only because I have been pleased with my 2-stroke Suzy.

Are they new or second hand?

I guess if the Yam F50 doesn't have PTT then its second hand as the new one comes with it?

The Yamaha-F50 EFI have power tilt but haven't electrical trim for the same with Suzuki-df50 price . The power trim - additional 600$ ... the motor is new .
