Yamaha has added a 90-hp engine to its V MAX SHO lineup, which previously comprised six models from 115 up to 250 horsepower. “The new V MAX SHO 90 is the perfect power solution for boaters looking to replace an older two-stroke 90-horsepower outboard with the clean, quiet efficiency of a four-stroke,” said Ben Speciale, president, Yamaha Marine Group. “It’s also a great choice for inshore and multi-species boats.”

SHO models have been popular with tournament bass fishermen who need a quick hole shot and hyper acceleration. Yamaha says the 1.8-liter 90 SHO (super-high output) will deliver class-leading torque and top speed. A single overhead camshaft drives four valves per cylinder to deliver more power from less weight.

The mechanical 90 is compatible with Yamaha’s Command Link gauges, variable trolling RPM switch, Y-COP anti-theft system and can be rigged for tiller control. Its quiet performance is enhanced by Yamaha’s Talon SS4 prop, featuring the company’s Shift Dampener System.
