We see lighter large 4 stroke outboards, and manufacturers continue to be in a horsepower race. 2 stroke motors are falling out of grace, and companies like Yamaha has come out with SHO model 4 stroke outboards that match up to comparable horsepower 2 stroke motors.

But my F150 Yamaha is essentially the same motor since 2007--with relatively few improvements over the years. They are simple to maintain and they're very reliable and trouble free. Yamaha really did their homework when they designed that best selling motor in its horsepower segment.
