V MAX your torque.
The streamlined cowling design, with aggressive, stylish V MAX graphics, conceals advanced technology features like a 16-valve, double-overhead cam engine layout with variable camshaft timing and electronic fuel injection - but there’s no hiding the blistering acceleration and heart-pumping top speed.
From a practical viewpoint too, this is no ordinary outboard. For example, the 3-phase, high-power (50A) alternator provides plenty of juice to power all the on-board electronics. What’s more, it delivers enough power to charge your batteries even at trolling speed, so you will never run out of power.
