Two questions:

1) Has reliability or longevity been reduced?

2) How much has hydrodynamic efficiency been increased?   (the claim was made)

They sure are impressive motors.

In 2022 that motor was listed as 157 lbs. in its lightest version. Any way you cut it, 128 lbs. is a significant improvement.

My 2014 30hp. Tohatsu with tilt and electric start weighs 185lb. They achieved an impressive weight reduction..

Is it true that the Tohatsu 25/30 are made in Japan?  

Thanks,

From looking through the 2023 manual on the 30 HP, short shaft, electric start, remote control with power trim is 148 pounds.

The * indicates the lightest version of the motor which I bet means no tilt/trim and maybe not even electric start. Still it is a nice weight reduction.
