V MAX your torque.
2.8 litres, 175 cc, compact body and signature design – the V MAX SHO 175hp accepts no compromise. It has an amazing power-to-weight ratio and is expertly designed to deliver its unique acceleration in a clean, efficient and quiet way.
The streamlined cowling design, with aggressive, stylish V MAX graphics, conceals advanced technology features like a 16-valve, double-overhead cam engine layout with variable camshaft timing and electronic fuel injection – but there’s no hiding the blistering acceleration and heart-pumping top speed.
From a practical viewpoint too, this is no ordinary outboard. For example, the three-phase, high-power (50A) alternator provides plenty of juice to power all the on-board electronics. What’s more, it delivers enough power to charge your batteries even at trolling speed, so you will never run out of power.
