Not too sure about the look of that top cover.

Because its radical it could also look very dated in a few years time.

Wish I had one though.

Intersting that it weighs 90 kgs more than Suzuki's 300 for an extra 50hp.

Yup it's way to heavy for it's power output. I would only be tempted if they take it out to 400hp.

It weighs 365kgs versus 225kg for a Mercury 300hp.

and to think....you can get nearly 1400 shp out of a turbine for that weight...... coupled to an arneson... or two - coupled to something like this........ and you have 80+ kts

downside - cost :-(
but heck its brings smiles to our faces - oohhh and wrinkles... lol
