How technology has affected today’s outboard engines

“We see the change. New outboard engines literally look different: more-angular shapes, removable cowling sections, coordinated color combinations — and just plain bigger.

Outboard engines have certainly come along way in recent years. However, we’re not quite ready to call previous generations “Outdated”.
