Well I found out this afternoon that Yamaha will be releasing a F70 in 2010 weighing in at around 120kg.

This is from a very reliable source and this will mean Yamaha will have the market sown up for this size motor!!

Gosh who would have known for all us F60 boys :-/

And then theres the other bigger HP lightwieght 4 bangers Yamaha are producing, I think some dealers will be feeling quite threatened!

Glad i dont work in the outboard industry!!

Yep its a 16 Valve version of the single cam 8 valve f60C. Same displacement and still utilises a single cam

More parts than a swiss watch in a 16v with one cam. Hope they get it right and it is long lasting as it would be a horror to redo a head outside a factory setting.
