Evinrude revealed its much-ballyhooed G2 outboard lineup over the weekend at a media event in Wisconsin. The sleekly designed motors definitely look different than any of the predecessors and the company touts that they achieve up to 75% fewer total regulated emissions, with 15% better fuel efficiency and 20% more torque than leading four-stroke engines (based on internal tests).
“BRP’s Evinrude brand is an integral part of one of the most innovative powersports companies in the world,” said Alain Villemure, VP of the company'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 G2 engine offers the first and only customizable look, the only clean rigging and fully integrated digital controls. These innovations allow consumers to choose the perfect combination of boat and engine by selecting top and front panels, as well as accent colors that match the boat.
“This engine stands alone in the industry and on the water,” said Chris Dawson, VP and GM 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.”
