OUTBOARDS

MD40B2

MID RANGE

The Tohatsu 40hp TLDI® is one of the smallest engines available with air-assisted direct injection technology. This outboard has all of the benefits of new and improved 21st century technology without compromising power or performance.

We have added this new low-pressure air/fuel delivery system to our proven engine block to give you an outboard superior to al others. It provides exceptional fuel savings over 4-Strokes and conventional 2-Strokes alike and is very gentle on the environment.

If you’re looking for a tiller model, we now offer a multi-function tiller handle as standard equipment. This tiller handle includes all controls conveniently located on the handle for easy access giving you more control, better maneuverability and increased safety. And our 40 hp TLDI® outboard weighs up to 15% less than competitive 4-stroke outboards and meets EPA emission regulations.

When clean, mean outboard power is what you need, look no further than the Tohatsu 40hp TLDI®.
