"We're extremely pleased to make this product introduction during our celebration of 100 years of life on the water with Evinrude," says Roch Lambert, vice president and general manager, Outboard Marine Engines, BRP.
"Evinrude outboard power began with engineering ingenuity
and BRP is continuing it today with E-TEC technology in new 25- and 30-horsepower engines," he continues. "We have broadened our engine family to make the Evinrude E-TEC product advantages available to more boating applications and allow a greater opportunity for boaters everywhere to spend more time on the water."
The new two-cylinder engines offer the highest fuel efficiency, lightest weight and most power in their competitive engine class. The engine technology and superior results are proven with five years of E-TEC technology success and a rigorous testing program. With a 35.3 cubic inch (576 cc) displacement and 142-pound weight, boaters will enjoy the advantages of quick acceleration, high power and low fuel consumption these new lower horsepower engines provide to them. Ergonomically designed for easy operation, the new 25- and 30-horsepower engines feature a more compact and integrated pull handle that locks in place, standard electronic adjustable idle speed control and a trim and tilt switch that is located at the end of the twist grip that can be operated without moving your hand. The sleek, compact design includes a folding tiller handle for convenient carrying and storage. The tiller handle also incorporates a unique "touch troll" button, which acts like a cruise control to allow boaters easy adjustment and maintain optimal trolling speed. Boaters can rely on the high 15 amps of net output for additional power to operate onboard electronics. Each model, regardless of configuration, includes a rope starter.
"These new outboard engines fill a vital product segment in key markets worldwide," added Chris Dawson, vice president and general manager, BRP International. "With the launch of the new 25 and 30hp models, as well as the 250HO and 300hp models released earlier this year, we are delivering on our promise to expand the line above and below the current offering. All these new models are expected to bring great enthusiasm from our worldwide dealer network," stated Dawson. The new engines feature the same E-TEC technology that provides superior benefits found throughout the line.
