BRP signed an agreement with Tohatsu Corp. to supply a range of Evinrude outboard engines from 3.5 hp to 15 hp, the company said.

The new engines will be available at BRP dealerships early next year, adding to BRP's lineup of Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines of 15 H.O. to 300 hp.

"We believe Tohatsu Corporation, who builds quality and market-proven engines, to be the right supplier to complete the Evinrude lineup," BRP president and CEO José Boisjoli said in a statement. "BRP's focus remains on the development and manufacturing of high-value and higher-horsepower engines, using the E-TEC technology that we will continue to enhance with industry-leading features and benefits over the years to come."

BRP invested considerably in the Evinrude brand and E-TEC technology, including a $15 million investment in its state-of-the-art facility in Sturtevant, Wis.

This agreement further supports its commitment to the Evinrude brand, the company said.
