Genoa Boat Show will see the debut of the new Tohatsu MFS9.8B and MFS8B outboards. They will celebrate the 60th birthday of the Japanese manufacturer.
Tohatsu MFS9.8B and MFS8B, small but brave
In the last four years Tohatsu has introduced 16 new outboard engines, all characterized by a vanguard technology to grant reliability and performance. The cowling of Tohatsu MFS9.8B and MFS8B follows the styling introduced with MFS40, with improved boldness and practicality. Both the new units are based on the two-cylinder, 209 cc mono-block and feature a new gasket around the cover which improves water proofing of the engine.
Genoa Boat Show, where Tohatsu will be present through the Italian dealer M3 Servizi Nautici (Pavillon B, Stand D4), will be the occasion to celebrate Tohatsu Outboards’ history, turning 60 year old in 2016.
