Only that it's replacing the Toro engine.
Strange new name though, I don't know
if they named it after the fish or the city
in Italy?

I think someone may have looked up the meaning
of the wrong word.

Bonito-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonito - fish

Eh for those prices Im Fine with my Werks B5...well 2 of them actually, lol. No disrespect to novi at all but i would have figured with all the new mills coming out and staying around the $200-$300 mark , they would have tried to price themselves back in the game.. I mean almost anyone i know in this hobby is still on a tight buget with the lack of economy and even if they do perfer nova they have gone a different direction due to the extremely high prices still..

the specs are a little nicer than the toro nero its replacing but im almost like the head on the toro nero a little better. It has better looking artwork. The new ones are a little blah. very uncharacteristic of nova. I wonder if the piston and sleeve are interchangeable in the toro nero case. That would be a good replacement when mine goes out I suppose. I guess we will have to wait to see the part number of the case for it. The bore and stroke are exactly the same between the two so basically they just changed up the porting slightly.

they mean the same thing.. a word ending with a means something feminine and the same word ending with o .. means something masculine...

although there is a fish with the name name bonito... he is not wrong... you are both right

Yes i agree totally, i would just beleive that the sales of these new "buget" mills are far surpassing even the all mighty O.S and Novarossi's right now.. So i guess from a business perspect i would have tried to adjust a little more towards the bigger sales crowd and maybe not introduce 4 new engines all above $350 without a NEW $200-$250 budget motor... Just my thoughts and Apperently Novarossi's is different and thats why they make the big bucks haha.. Either way they do look great like all nova's and im sure the quality is Top notch like always!
