Outboard Comparison

Evinrude 150 vs. Yamaha 200:
Which Engine Has More Power?

Evinrude 150 vs. Yamaha 200
In the black trunks, weighing in at 150-hp we have the Evinrude E-TEC G2 150. In the gray trunks, weighing in at 200-hp, we have the Yamaha F200. May the best engine win!

The 4-cylinder Yamaha F200 has long dominated the outboard contenders in this middleweight horsepower category. But what if we pitted a 150-hp 6-cylinder Evinrude
E-TEC G2 against the popular Yamaha in-line 4-cylinder F200? Can the Evinrude overcome the disadvantage of 50 fewer horsepower to KO the reigning 200-hp Champ? Can the proud Yamaha make up for 2 fewer cylinders to keep its 200-hp title? Veteran referee Dave East conducted the fight of the year to find out. Get your ringside seat here...
