Tohatsu introduced a new range of four-stroke battery-less outboards in September and these will be on show at boot Düsseldorf in January.

The company claims the electronic fuel injection (EFI) models are the lightest in the industry in each of their horsepower class but still retain ‘exceptional’ torque and top end speed.

“We chose to build an EFI outboard because it has easy startup with no choke required and smooth, crisp acceleration throughout all RPM ranges,” said a Tohatsu spokesman. “Another added benefit of an EFI versus our previous carbureted outboard is the fuel efficiency at wide open throttle, which allows users to go up to 50% further on less fuel.”

The models - MFS20E, MFS15E and MFS9.9E – have inherited Tohatsu’s ‘light weight eco sport’ development and design concept from its signature MFS50/40A models.

“This design has been so well received worldwide, that we chose to incorporate that signature look in this redesign,” added the spokesman.

By moving heavy components such as the crankshaft and driveshaft 30mm forward compared to the previous model, the tilting weight has decreased by 26% from the previous version.

The engines are particularly suitable for light-weight craft such as aluminum boats and inflatable boats.
