New look for Mercury Racing engines
New racing graphics designed to emphasise horsepower rating.
Mercury Racing has released new graphics for its 250 XS and 300 XS outboards designed to emphasise the horsepower rating and the fact these engines come from Mercury’s Racing stable.
The 250 XS is a low-emissions 250hp two-stroke engine that comes exclusively with the Sport Master gearcase. Designed for lighterweight hulls capable of speeds in excess of 135km/h, the Sport Master features a crescent-shaped leading-edge housing with low water pick-ups. Mercury says this enables the 250 XS to run at elevated transom heights for maximum engine rpm, hydrodynamic efficiency and top-end speeds.
The 300 XS is available with 20”, 25” and 30” mid-sections and a custom-designed exhaust adapter plate which enables it to be used on high-speed multi-engine catamaran and vee-bottom boats as well as ski boats.
Models fitted with the 20” mid-section are available with the Torque Master II and Sport Master gearcases. The Torque Master II is available with a 1.75:1 gear ratio while Sport Master gearcases are available with 1.62:1 or 1.75:1 ratios. The Torque Master II, designed for single engine applications, is available in right-hand rotation only.
Offshore models come standard with a heavy-duty swivel clamp bracket assembly and the 1.75:1 Verado 4.8 gearcase. Engines fitted with Verado gearcases are available in right-hand and left-hand rotation.
