FWIW...I'm not a big fan of my Honda 2hp 4 stroke. Its loud, it will only start with the freshest of fuel, but is light and easy to handle. I would probably never purchase a Honda outboard or any of their small engines again. Many of the mechanics I have had work on the thing say they're over engineered and see continuous issues with their carburetors.
I used to have a Suzuki 6hp 4 Stroke and was pretty pleased with it but it also liked the freshest of fuel.
How I miss the days of the Briggs & Straton that would start after sitting all winter on the first pull
Bottom line, I don't like the new generation of small 4 stroke outboard engines, next one will be a two stroke.
My boat neighbor is very happy with his 4 year old Tahatsu though
