New for 2005 is a redesigned series of Bravo drives. Featuring a new cone clutch and shift engagement strategy with MPI engines, these drives shift like silk while delivering rock-crushing torque. New graphics and a new, sleek shape to the upper unit highlight the new design that delivers best-in-class shifting. All XR Drives now feature the ribbed top that reinforces the steel chimney securing bearings under high load.
Precision shimmed near-net forged steel gears for strength and durability.
Heavy-duty U-joint reliably transmits monster torque loads.
Reinforced ribbed top cap & steel chimney reliably secure bearings under high load.
XK360 low copper alloy for corrosion resistance.
Tri-Paint System (Irridite, EDP & Powder Paint) creates a tough, durable corrosion resistant barrier.
Armored trim lines protect hydraulic system from debris.
Heavy-duty hinge pins maintains accurate trim angle in rough conditions.
Bravo XR leads the race for factory-class performance.
Bravo XR with the Sport Master lower unit keeps you connected and ahead of the rest for speeds in excess of 90 mph with a nose cone and a CNC milled longer torpedo.
Low Water Pick-ups draw cooling water from the bottom of the torpedo to allow X-Dimensions up to 22 for catamaran applications.
Available Lab-Finished props are trued, balanced, honed, and polished to perfection.
Integrated Transom System (ITS) – Combines external steering performance with a 7 standoff that does not require additional glass-work or cutting into the transom.
Twin props & large rudder area with Bravo Three XR allows uncompromised handling.
Trim limit switch sets drive angle for maximum performance every time.
Drive Lube Monitor Alarm warns if drive lube is low. Allows easy inspection and fill without the cost to pull a boat from the water.
Permalube® U-Joint No Maintenance Required.
Maintenance Free Hinge Pins No added cost to pull a boat from the water.
Greaseable Drive Coupler No added cost to pull a boat from the water.
Greaseable Gimbal Bearing Do not need to remove the drive for service.
Power Trim XD® Automatically Returns the Drive to the Water to Maintain Full Control of Boat in Case of an Emergency.
MerCathode® monitors the galvanic potential of the drive and counteracts corrosion with a metered electrical charge providing continuous cathodic protection.
Engine Guardian System® with MPI engines equipped with the PCM 55 controller protects the drive from damage from low lubricant levels.
