STURTEVANT, WI, July 14, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - BRP has added more than 50
new Evinrude dealers to its rapidly expanding dealer network in recent
months. These new dealers from Florida, United States to Alberta,
Canada will offer the complete line-up of BRP's Evinrude E-TEC outboard
engines as well as provide top-of-the-line service and parts on all
Evinrude products, as well as on existing Johnson products.
"Our dealers are our best ambassadors and they are instrumental to
moving our company forward," said Alain Villemure, vice-president and
general manager of BRP's Marine Propulsion Systems division. "BRP
redefined the boating industry in June with the launch of our new
Evinrude E-TEC G2 products; adding new dealers to our proven sales
network expands the opportunity to share our newest technology with
consumers as we redefine the future of outboards."
BRP's Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine offers an audacious new look in engines
along with best-in-class fuel economy. The new 200-300 hp offering also
exceeds all emissions standards and offers power and torque when
boaters need it most. Complete with a new warranty that gives owners
five hundred hours on the water without required dealer servicing, the
G2 outboard engine goes into full production in November 2014.
