The Bravo is a much stronger drive than the Alpha. The throttle and shifter operate the same. One difference is when removing the drive it's done in neutral as opposed to having to be in forward with the Alpha. The Bravo's raw water pump is mounted on the starboard front of the engine and driven by the belt instead of the Alpha's mid-section pump in the drive.
