    the SHO motors pretty light and compact
    the SHO is fairly light for it's actual geometry
    .
    takes a fair amount of R&D to produce a new 4T motor like yamaha have done
    .
    do you think they'll put their new 1.8L motor in a new NanoXcel Gpr hull
    .
    .

    If they can get it in one and have it weight less than 700 pounds it would be sweet, but I'm thinkin it will be an 800+ pound 2 seater.

    GPr with the new SHO + Nanomudbot hull

    what's the 08 GPr 306Kg's?
    .
    conservativley guestimating
    minus 20KG's with Nanomud hull = 286Kgs = 630 Lbs
    + 35Kg's for 4T motor, SC, cams, chain, extra oil etc etc
    = 321Kg's.....stuff-it say 330Kg's
    that's 727Lbs

    .
    dunno how wrong I am with those motor weights?,,
    there saying SHO's 45Lb lighter than competitors, what weight doe's that make-it,,,more than the GPr 3Cyl 2 smoker
    .
    .
    we're dreamin,,arn't we

    The new motor will have to see numerous performance mods before it will be a killer engine in the old GPR hull.
