My 6HP Tohatsu produces less HP than the 5HP Tohatsu 2-stroke I have.
I've had good experiences with the Tohatsu/Nissan 2-strokes (3.3 and 5 HP) but am miffed about the 4-stroke 6. I can't believe it produces 6 HP. It will barely plane one person in a dinghy, something the 5HP did with ease.
Otherwise it starts reasonably easily and for a 4-stroke, it's reasonably light weight. But the power output is underwhelming.
