BRP adds to Evinrude lineup


BRP recently launched its new Evinrude E-TEC 15-hp H.O. engine, featuring the Touch-Troll system, a 15-amp alternator that comes with no scheduled dealer maintenance for three years or 300 hours.

"We're delivering on our commitment to expand our Evinrude E-TEC lineup," said Yves Leduc, vice president-general manager for BRP's North American division, in a statement.

"The new 15-hp H.O. model gives consumers the best of both worlds - the largest displacement, which delivers the maximum get-home speed and the direct-injection fuel system that offers the optimum ability for slow trolling," he added.

The new engine will be highlighted at select boat shows, including those in Houston, Seattle, Minneapolis, Toronto and Miami.

It will be available as a limited-release production through authorized North American dealers beginning in May.
