Yamaha Outboards Introduces the All-New VF90


The all-new Yamaha 90-horsepower In-Line Four V MAX SHO® may be the smallest in the V MAX SHO line, but it packs the biggest punch of any 90-horse on the water. Its SOHC four-valve-per-cylinder design minimizes weight while optimizing combustion. In fact, its lightweight design combined with 1.8L displacement makes the I-4 V MAX SHO 90 the class leader in torque and top speed. Add to that the option of a 25-inch shaft and the VF90 is an exciting new prospect for bass, walleye, inshore and muskie anglers trolling on 25-inch transom multi-species boats. The all-new Yamaha I-4 V MAX SHO 90. A quick, little addition to our V MAX SHO family—and a day out fishing.


The all-new I-4 V MAX SHO 90 is not only the fastest on the water; it’s also the quietest. In fact, it’s noticeably quieter than its closest competitor. It gets even smoother and quieter still when you add a Yamaha propeller with our patented Shift Dampener System (SDS). Talk about stealthy fishing.


The In-Line Four V MAX SHO 90 features a single overhead camshaft with four valves per cylinder, for 16 total valves. (Its primary competitor only features eight valves.) This optimizes engine combustion, and creates class-leading torque, acceleration and efficiency, all while reducing mass in the cylinder head and streamlining weight.



TCI Microcomputer Ignition monitors throttle position, engine speed and atmospheric conditions in order to precisely adjust ignition timing under all conditions for optimum ignition performance, ensuring smooth and reliable operation.
