The next generation of Yamaha V6 four strokes. They're quicker, stronger, smarter and lighter -with class-leading 4.2L displacement that outperforms comparable four strokes on time-to-plane, cruise speed, weight -even fuel economy.
From the top of the cowling to the tip of the propshaft, every ounce of weight savings has been realized for maximum performance without sacrificing durability. There's even an advanced polymer composite lower engine pan that lowers weight and increases corrosion resistance.
Yamaha's Variable Camshaft Timing system advances and retards the angle of the intake camshaft to dramatically increase power and throttle response in the low- and mid-rpm ranges. This feature helps Yamaha's 4.2-litre big-bore V6 Offshore Outboard to deliver awesome holeshot and mid-range acceleration you have to feel to believe.
Air enters the engine block and is routed through a single 75 mm electronically controlled throttle valve. This works in concert with the Precision Multi-Point Fuel Injection System to ensure the precise mixture of air and fuel for optimum power and fuel efficiency. The reduction in friction from the Micro-Textured Cylinder Walls further increases the amazing fuel economy!
