Yamaha announces the latest F9.9 and other model news for next season
Yamaha’s popular portable – now smarter and even more user-friendly. The stylish new top cowling – a compact design concept recently introduced on the F70 – will now be a feature of the latest F9.9 and its High Thrust partner, the FT9.9. Yamaha have also just announced that the F60 too, will feature this striking new look.
The F9.9 has been the focus of other recent development work at Yamaha, with the intention of making our latest version of this popular engine more appealing to owners who love its strong combination of power and reliability with ease of handling – both on the water and on shore.
First, Yamaha engineers have created a new 2012_Marine-engines_F9.9ergonomic design for the tiller handle, which is at more convenient length and features a comfortable–to-use forward-mounted shift lever within easy reach. Next, the latest F9.9 has been made easier to handle physically, with design refinements such as a large, comfortable carrying handle built into the steering bracket – and a new rest-pad for storing the engine vertically when required.
Together, these advantages add up to make this popular, portable and ultra-dependable engine the ‘smart’ choice for any leisure or professional user. Above all of course, it’s a Yamaha 4-stroke – and they don’t come ‘smarter’ than that.
The latest F9.9 will arrive in Europe in Spring 2013
