Default Looks Like Konrad Got The ACE Name

Just got the new Merc dealer newsletter. The new drive for the 700 is now called the NXT1 drive Actually the "1" is smaller, in the upper corner but I don't know how to type that.There is a very small footnote at the bottom that says it was introduced in Miami as the ACE drive. Bet there is a good story here. Anyone know what happened?

Piece of Cake.

Konrad owns the trademark "ACE" as it relates to marine propulsion.

From the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office:

The only interesting thing is the date. Looks like it's after the show.

I think the marketing guys blew it. NXT1, I guess pronounced "next 1"? Kind of bland to me,like they had one ,(XR), and this is the next one?What about the next one after that?I thought Mini 6 made more sense. Come on Merc,why didn't you just ask Fred K. to name it?
