I will only do about 150 /200 hours a year some racing .its a toss up between the suzuki and the verado, thanks in advance for any info
Here is a bit of info...bit biased though...
Engine has plenty of torque, loads of mid range power. It needs to jacked up high for racing to reach top speeds. The acceleration will blow you away literally. The warranty is only 2 years as it from Mercury racing. Donít worry about the warranty if you race it, because it will become void.
The Engine is a bit of a pig to set up as it has very different dimensions from the 300. The Gear case is larger, the cav plate is 1inch thick as well, hence the need to get it high. I would go for a jacking plate to make life a bit easier.
Fuel figures are really good. Flat out 6600rpm about 140lph, cruising around 60-70lph, bearing in mind we cruise at 50 knots. IMHO I donít think Suzuki is in the same league. I could be wrong though.
