Evinrude’s 225

Evinrude's 225

Evinrude (www.omc-online.com/evinrude; 847-689-5630) has three new models: 200, 225, and 250 horsepower, all built around a completely new 200-cubic-inch (3.3-liter) V-6 block that incorporates the latest Ficht Ram Injection two-cycle DFI system. I’ve tested many of the Ficht engines over the years, and they just keep getting better. I tried all of the new models and feel that their all-around performance-especially acceleration, quietness, and smoothness of operation-is outstanding. Ditto the fuel consumption, which is just as miserly as the same horsepower in four-stroke configurations.
