Noise level of the G2s vs fourstroke

Looking at these motors, and was wondering how much difference in noise level there is...

it is a different noise but not any louder. i suggest you find a test ride to judge yourself.

Re: Noise level of the G2s vs fourstroke

 

 

Both the Evinrude E-TEC G2 and a 4-stroke are very quiet motors compared to the old technology of years ago.  At idle, a 4-stroke is slightly quieter but the G2 surprises people how quiet it is. Often folks ask if it is an Evinrude 4-stroke as they have never heard one so silent before.

 

At cruise and high speeds, the E-TEC G2 has an edge with a deeper tone. It does not sound as harsh or as "busy" as some of the 4-strokes do at the same speed.

 

All in all, you can carry on a normal conversation with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 at cruise. You could never do that with old technology carbureted 2-stroke outboards.

 

The G2 has all the advantages that a 4-stroke has and none of the disadvantages that a 4-stroke has.

Re: Noise level of the G2s vs fourstroke

I just bought a Manitou Tritoon with a G2 150 HO. Took it for a test run today. The dealer started the motor while I was sitting there. I asked him if he wanted me to turn the batteries on. Because he turned the key and I heard nothing. I looked at the RPM gauge and it was idling so quiet I couldnt hear it. Just as quiet as my 150 Yamaha was. Even thru the RPM range it seemed quieter than any Yamaha 4 stroke I have owned. It was impressive.

We are happy to hear that you are enjoying your new Evinrude powered boat.  Many onlookers are amazed when they first hear an Evinrude E-TEC G2 at a dock and remark how quiet it is. Today's outboards offer more convenient features and better economy than ever before.

 

Have a great boating season.
