Direct injection is an improvement but not a ground breaking one.

Contra-rotating - do you mean like the Suzuki 350? Again an improvement but an incremental one.

Like I said - lots of small technical improvements. Digital throttle is another one.

I’d argue that GPS and joystick systems are not related to engines - they’re external systems; but granted they are somewhat revolutionary for outboard powered boats.
