Default The new Mercury Outboards, details

Not sure if you guys saw this, details of the new outboards announced in Miami, pricing, next models and something new from Mercury Racing potentially.

I like the 3.4, looks kind of weird at first but growing on me. The 150 ProXS is a sweet engine. dynod at 163 HP.

Honda actually used that prototype design for the new 250, which looks great. It's just heavy but I love the aesthetic.

I kind of agree on the Merc, it looks too big and chunky, and plain. I really like the 150 and 150 ProXS four stroke look, too bad it didn't look more like that.

G2 has grown on me.

IMHO The G2 (and the new Mercs) look good on angular boats. Not so great on roundish hulls.

That's a fair statement. I used to hate the look of the verados...but they've grown on me too.
