    there are a few diferences
    here are a couple to get you started
    140 = 996cc
    160 = 1052cc
    the 160's also have a light weight hull and a beter pump

    Its a totally different motor, pump, hull, and of course ecu.

    I used to ride a 140 and then HO.
    The HO is lighter and feels much lighter.
    HO is better on gas, faster, quicker, etc.

    most of it would be from the bigger cc's or they wouldn't have bothered
    but that is not the only thing that was changed on the motor

    probably bored out the cylinders for bigger pistons changed most of the internals & a more efficient pump.

    The HO has a higher compression ratio.
