- Engine : Mercury 15 / 20 hp EFI Four Stroke
- HP : 15 / 20
Brand new for 2018, Mercury started from scratch when they redesigned their 15 and 20 hp platform, bringing electronic fuel injection to a compact Mercury outboard for the first time.
Fuel injection affords easier starting outboards that warm up quicker and offer improved throttle response. But fuel injection isn’t all that’s new, the innovative tiller handle is longer and more ergonomically designed. It’s also the first tiller handle that can be adjusted for right handed or left handed users! And that’s not all, in redesigning the 15 and 20 hp models Mercury engineers were able to reduce the engine weight by more than 10%! A manual start model with a 15″ shaft weighs only 99 pounds.
Several models are available in both horsepower families. Model variations range from short and long shaft, manual and electric start, tiller handle and remote control variations. Additionally four 15 hp Pro Kicker models with high thrust gearcases and power tilt are available in either long, or extra long shaft lengths.
