Suzuki Honda Yamaha

I would like to ask the Question
Why when every body raves on about the E.Tecs two strokes are the makers of the big three, Suzuki Honda (Four strokes only) and if what the other thread says and i also was told Yamaha are to drop Two strokes.
are they all concentrating on Four Strokes
What do they know that Evenrude dont,vice versa

It's a very personal choice I guess and engine manufacturers have chosen 2 different routes. To get a 2-stroke to be complient to emissions regs is much harder than a 4 stroke and they have to be direct injection as per E-TEC, OPTI, TLDI etc. 2 Strokes are lighter with more low down torque. 4 strokes are probably quieter and a bit more efficient) although E-TEC claims to be as efficient as equiv 4-stroke.

See

(to be taken with pinch of salt as it depends very much on what prop was on each engine).

I personally chose 2-stroke for the weight and relative simplicity factor although I use a 4-stroke aux so it can run off raw fuel.
