Thought folks would find this interesting. This new 2 stroke has all kinds of interesting innovatons. Perhaps most interesting is that the steering mechanism is now completely internal to the motor housing, allowing it to tilt to 90 degrees. http://www.boattest.com/engine-review/Evinrude/22500090_E-TEC-G2-250-H-O-_2014 I think it's a bit ugly, but I love what they've done with the rest of the motor. Good to see some marine companies still innovating around 2 stroke technology.
