I posted this in the motor section but thought I'd put it here too since it would get more interest here.
The new 175/200/225 Mercury will be 3.4 liters and lighter than the 3 liter 2 strokes at 475 pounds.

I am considering putting one on my boat.

Plans for a 250? Wonder if they will phase out the Verado or if it has a use somewhere.

I've been hearing talk that the small Verado's may be going bye bye and the new line will be 250 through 400 hp.

That is all guessing but by guys who guessed pretty close on this newest addition. Mercury says this is just the first step.
Yamaha makes a 250 with a 3.3 liter so its possible.

+1. Looks just like a G2.

I feel like they could have had such a good opportunity to gain some ground in the 4 stroke market on the SHO but they did not do that. So disappointed with this

Exactly what my first thoughts were. These new motors look like someone said "Let's make them different!" They succeeded. Must be designed by the same people that came up with the Pontiac Aztec.

They better hope it only looks like a G2. Have not heard good things about the G2. Me and a tour pro got to talking about motors and he said stay away from that Evinrude. Usually wait for a second generation of new motors so that they can get the bugs worked out. If you are in the market for a new motor you might want to give it a while to see the data on these things after being on the water. The Optimax wasn’t a great motor motor at first but look how that turned out once they got it right.

I got the impression they would release a 250 version of the new 4 stroke 150 pro xs they revealed today, I don't think these are really for the "bass boat market"

They released the 150 Pro XS and the 250 will be right behind it.

I like the look personally. Also like the look of the Evinrude. Has an aggressive design to it.

Everyone I have spoken with about the G2's love them. Yes, there was some hiccups early. I have spoke with fresh and saltwater guys. Some are saying they are the best engine they have ever had.

I can say this about Evinrude. Coming from a mercury to an 2013 ETEC. The ETEC is a "great" motor.

So these three will be sandwiched between the 115, 150 and 250?, kinda odd, not much continuity there.
