Evinrude
BRP has revealed a new outboard engine that they claim produces up to 75% fewer total regulated emissions, with 15% better fuel efficiency and 20% more torque than leading four-stroke engines: G2 engines, the next generation of Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines.

“BRP’s Evinrude brand is an integral part of one of the most innovative powersports companies in the world,” said Alain Villemure, vice-president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division. “Our reputation for inventing and reinventing the playgrounds we’re in dictates that a new era in outboard engine technology and design would originate from BRP.”
 
Available this fall at BRP dealers in ranges starting at 200 H.O. to 300R.A.V.E., the new E-TEC G2 engine offers a customizable look, clean rigging and fully integrated digital controls. These innovations now allow consumers to choose the absolute perfect combination of boat and engine by selecting top and front panels, as well as accent colors that match your boat.
 
“This engine stands alone, in the industry and on the water,” said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager of Global Sales and Consumer Experience. “Until now, achieving these levels of performance and integration was unheard of. Add to this the fact that this engine produces, by far, the fewest emissions of any outboard engine on the water, and it's clear to see why the new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines will change the face of boating.”
 
The company launched its first-generation Evinrude E-TEC technology in 2003 and added to the line a broad spectrum of horsepower options for any boating need. The innovative technology has delivered on more power and torque while achieving and surpassing the EPA’s clean air standards for more than 10 years. BRP’s technological breakthroughs with the Evinrude E-TEC technology have also allowed for fewer dealer visits and less engine maintenance over time, giving boaters more time on the water. G2 engines join other Evinrude E-TEC product innovations like the new Pontoon Series engines, the only ones specifically built for pontoons, providing vibration-reducing motor mounts and all the same Evinrude best-in-class performance.
 
BRP dealers and boat builders from around the world and members of the media were given the opportunity to find out more about this new revolution in the outboard industry as well as test-ride the new line-up during a dealer conference held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (US) this past June. BRP organizers received a Silver status certification for a sustainable event.
