I too have the new F25 Yamaha and would recommend it. As stated above the push button rpm control is really cool, it is over 60lb lighter than the previous model, as well they are fuel injected and don't require a battery, they pull over and start very easily (my 14 year old nephews have no problem). It comes with a high power alternator for charging too.

They have awesome low speed torque for exceptional hole shot too. No special gas tanks or hoses are required. I used the same tank and hose from my older 25 hp Yamaha (I updated to get the lighter motor with the rpm control). I also have a 2008 15hp 2 stroke Yamaha, that I ran a lot and kept because it starts and runs so well.

$1000 is a lot of money, you might consider bringing that up with the Yamaha dealer and see if he'll get closer for you, but you also get what you pay for and the Yamaha won't let you down.
