New Mercury 115 Four stroke mod in 2016?

I have heard rumors about that Mercury will release a new model of the 115hp four stroke engine in 2016.
In the same way that Optimax 115 Pro xs gives about 10% more power than the original Optimax 115, the new four stroke model are supposed to have more power than the Mercury 115 delivered today.

Someone knowing more about this?

The rule changes for UIM 3A and 3B for 2016, to allow 4 - strokes were brought in via Sweden.

So no doubt, 'Someone knowing more about this', is just round the corner.

Rule change was to increase from 1800cc to 2100cc 4 Strokes were already allowed !!
Mikael Lundblad would be best person to speak to.
