New looks - and new combustion efficiency
Hidden away under its smart new round cowling, with its three-position storage capability (stand it on either side or on the front) are a host of engine improvements that make the 2.5hp more efficient. In turn, the improved combustion efficiency makes this remarkable engine quieter and more economical - with lower exhaust emissions.
Convenient user-friendly gear and throttle controls
A full size shift lever is normally found only on larger engines, but the ability to engage gear so easily and precisely is a real plus for the 2.5hp. In fact, the convenient positioning of all the key controls, combined with the ease and precision of the 360º steering system, helps put ultimate control at your fingertips.
360º steering for instant direction changes
The first time you take the 2.5hp out on the water, you'll quickly appreciate how agile it is. The full 360º steering offers exceptional manoeuvrability and means full reverse thrust is always available without having to shift gears. In addition, the new, larger rear carrying handle is very convenient for steering in reverse.
Built-in see-through fuel tank
When you plan a trip, it's nice to know you''ll have room for all the necessary gear. To give you more space inside your boat, the 2.5hp has a built-in fuel tank, eliminating the need for a separate one on the floor. What's more, the new tank is a special see-through design that allows you to keep an easy check on the fuel level at all times.
Strong tiller handle with comfortable twist-grip throttle
The latest 2.5hp's tiller handle, featuring a new, large and comfortable twist-grip throttle, allows easy control of the engine, while the side-mounted shift selector is also very convenient to use. The result is superb handling and manoeuvrability. The kill switch and throttle cable are integrated into the design.
Convenient steering friction adjustment
You'll find the 2.5hp incredibly easy to handle, thanks to its many user-friendly control features, but it also has handy controls for steering friction and throttle adjustment. This allows both steering and throttle to be adjusted easily when you're out on the water and provides great stability and control, even at higher speeds.
