I t is heavy as hell. But if it has as big of torque as they say it does it might still have good top end speed. I want to see the 250 vs. 250 comparison on the same boat. (250xs vs. 250 verado) That should tell the tale. It is very interesting that they are supposedly getting the reliability with 12 pounds of boost. Time will tell I guess. DK

They say it's 630 lbs. "Lightest in it's class". I assume they are refering to 4 strokes. How much does the old 225 weigh?

I don't know what the 225 weighs, but the 2.5 280 hp weighs in the 360# range, and the 300x weighs in at about the mid 400 range.
