Check their web page if you don't know what I'm talking about. Also got the alert on my Yamaha app this morning.

In before someone someone answers "exhaust stack corrosion" to my question.

White lower units? A white cowling that does not look like it belongs on a Ficht? A motor that is actually available before next year?

The guide in the slip next to me is hoping to get his blown powerhead on his one-year-old 4.2 300 with128 hour motor diagnosed in the next 15 days.........maybe that's it.

If I had to guess it would be every new Yamaha greater than 90 hp is going to come either with a margarita machine or slurpee machine built in providing the captain and the crew with a bounty of cool frozen drinks. If not this, then it will be the anticipated 400 or 450 HP motors. Heck why not 500 HP? I would still like that built in slurpee machine though.

I'm sure they made an entire advertising campaign around doing that.

A new Silver color, getting rid of Gray. $1,999 upcharge promotion

No but seriously, probably the 400-450hp motor they was hinted to be revealed in Miami would be my guess. But I like the idea of a margarita machine suggested above!

I've seen pics of it; I was thinking then it will probably cost $1.5 - $2 million.

Hopefully they announce they have a surplus of 300's tucked away that they've been holding out on and this shortage is gone with a new 5k price drop!

Can't be that already happened a couple of years ago, and looks like they are taking over the market.
