G2 engines, the next generation of Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines,
showcases BRP's history of innovation with its bold breakthrough design
MILWAUKEE, WI, June 14, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - BRP (TSX: DOO) today
revealed a new outboard engine that 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."
The Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard engine delivers unrivaled performance
with best-in-class torque and fuel efficiency and lowest total
emissions. 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 the first and only
customizable look, the only 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, BRP's 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."
BRP's next generation of Evinrude E-TEC engines will be backed by
unmatched value with the industry's best engine warranty, least
maintenance and best-in-class fuel efficiency. BRP is the only outboard manufacturer offering 5-5-5: 5-year engine
warranty**, 5-year corrosion warranty, and 500 hours with no
dealer-scheduled maintenance, allowing for the most time on the water.
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 weekend. The integration of sustainability criteria in the
organization of the conference will allow this major event to be
certified as a BRP sustainable event.
BRP's Evinrude engine line-up from 3.5 to 300 horsepower offers
customers superior value across a full range of applications. Engines
are available at authorized Evinrude dealerships worldwide. Become part
