    Where its harder for mercury, evinrude etc... they dont share that engine with other products so much more money invested in moulds and machinery that can sink them

    True, but "followers" is not enough to keep a global market viable, Evinrude had lots of die hard followers, but, it's simply not enough.

I really don't know, but I hope they stay in outboards, take this for what it's worth, I have no idea, or haven't heard anything, it was just a random observation.
    Back before the GFC Honda were known to be a real adopter of technology The kind of stuff being developed for the prestige Euro brands by the likes of Bosch - today that technology bypasses Japan & goes straight to Korea .
    Your observations seem spot on & it's why the likes of Kia have increased market share in a declining market.

    The car engines are not the same, outboards are "based" on certain car engines.
