Monday, October 17, 2016 12:25 PM
Competitive bass anglers have long considered Mercury Marine’s Pro XS series the best performing, most reliable tournament-fishing outboards on the water. Now, Mercury, the world leader in commercial and recreational marine propulsion and technology, has produced another great outboard that gives freshwater anglers an edge on the competition: the new 115 Pro XS FourStroke outboard. Based on the popular Mercury 115 FourStroke, the new Mercury 115 Pro XS delivers significantly better performance than any other high-output 115hp outboard on the market today. In fact, the new 115 Pro XS is 16 pounds lighter than the 115 OptiMax it replaces, and 18 pounds lighter than the nearest competing 115hp engine. Its 2.1L displacement is higher than that of any competing 115hp engine. This unbeatable combination delivers higher torque, better performance and greater durability. Mercury Marine is also introducing a newly designed top cowl for its 8hp and 9.9hp FourStroke outboards. The new top cowl shows off a contemporary and forward-looking design that aligns with current styling for Mercury’s FourStroke outboard lineup. Mercury's cowls are constantly evolving from a styling perspective and this new design reflects that evolution.
