2022 Tohatsu 8hp, 4-Stroke

These outboards are compact 2-cylinder, SOHC engines that have been manufactured to comply with all US EPA 2006 & CARB 2008 (3-star rating) emission regulations.

Tohatsu's first priority when developing these outboard marine engines was to make them lightweight and compact without compromising reliability or the quality performance associated with the Tohatsu Outboard brand name.

They have maintained the durable standard features that Tohatsu Outboard owners appreciate while making fuel-efficient 4-strokes that are easy to transport.
