Great compared to two strokes.

Won't know till I find more real world numbers, If it performs, and is reliable, We will love it.

Have not heard about the 250 Class motor, if it comes out this year I'll order it on my next boat.

I really expect lakes to adopt the rules they use on Lake Tahoe at some point. If it's not a 4 stroke you can't put it in the water. I really don't think that is a bad idea.

2 strokes are allowed if they are fuel injected.

Initial information sounds good, but BMCD said it best that performance will ultimately determine its fate.

Well,it's looks like version ugly.01 of the g2 but it may grow on people, especially if it performs like they say. I honestly don't think those are going to be the bass boat segment of motors. I look for a pro xs line to come out. Hopefully renamed. I don't know why but it just seems wrong to take the pro xs name and move it to 4 strokes. Come up with something new, Pro FS or something

Less govt. rules = good!

More govt. rules = bad!

Freedom is awesome!

Not a fan of the cowling, but I have a feeling that they will have a regular looking cowling for us bass boaters. Other than that, I’m happy to see it!

I prefer the supercharged as opposed to the naturally aspirated motor. I get they need a cheaper version to compete with Yamaha though.

Far from it. Both Mercurys Optimax and Evinrude G2 put out lower emissions then the current 4 strokes.

Second that... mercury will not have a 2 stroke option very soon. Sad but seems to be true
