Faster Top Speed
The competitive V MAX SHO 150 produces an exciting 57.2 mph top speed that bests even the Yamaha two-stroke HPDI® 150. The excitement continues with incredible throttle response in the low- to mid-rpm ranges, due in part to Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT).

Quicker Hole Shot
At a mere 7.7 seconds, the VF150 has a hole shot on par with the two-stroke Yamaha VZ150 and up to 4.1 seconds faster than some four-stroke competitors.

Smarter Fuel Economy
The V MAX SHO 150 delivers the incredibly efficient, clean and quiet performance you expect from a four stroke. Using up to 30 percent less fuel than a traditional
carbureted two stroke, the savings alone should be enough to get you on board.

Extra Space
Four-stroke outboards like the V MAX SHO 150 eliminate the need for an external oil tank. That saves approximately 28 pounds and frees up storage space for tackle and other supplies.

Easy Rigging
The new four-stroke V MAX SHO 150 features mechanical controls that make it compatible with most bass, bay and flats boats. To complete your outboard control system, choose from analog, Pro Series II, 6Y5 digital or Command Link® gauges. 

Power and Performance
From the four-cylinder DOHC powerhead with four valves per cylinder, to the twin counterbalancing shafts, every feature of the V MAX SHO 150 is efficiently engineered for smooth, quiet performance.
