Hard to see if there's any kind of steering-assist system on it, but there is an interesting needle-like device peeking out from under the handle.

Yes I noticed that, but what is also interesting I don't see any rod in the tilt tube. I'm sure the Yamaha engineers have come up with an ingenious design.

That was fast. What is big secret to remove it, since the motor and boat was on display by Yamaha for all to see who came to ICast.
