Purely designed for the world of speed on water comes the new Mercury Racing 60 APX outboard. A “small one” compared to the giants the American giant has accustomed us to, which is aimed directly at the racing world, but also designed for those taking their first steps.

At the Dubai Boat Show in the United Arab Emirates, this new four-stroke outboard from Mercury was unveiled. An engine that aims to combine low emissions with lower operating costs. This is because the 60 APX is designed for emerging UIM Formula 4 drivers. Limited maintenance, in addition to lowering expenses, ultimately allows riders to spend more time on the track without getting stuck with the hiccups that punctually occur at training time.

What 60 APX looks like

The new Mercury 60 APX is a 995 cc and, as you might guess, has 60 horsepower. It has a dry weight of 112 kg. The base of this outboard is the Mercury 60 four-stroke with electronic fuel injection and is designed to reach up to a maximum of 6,000-6,400 rpm with the throttle all the way open (WOT – Wide-open throttle rev limit).

The 60 APX model uses a standard Mercury gearbox with underwater exhaust and a gear ratio of 1.82:1. The manufacturer then specifies how it is able to deliver maximum power with 90 RON gasoline.

In terms of aesthetics, however, the look of the new Mercury Racing Apex graphics looks upward from that of the 4.6-liter V8 360 AP X and 3.4-liter V6 200 APX four-stroke racing outboards.
