Thursday, July 11, 2013

BRP unveiled four new Evinrude E-TEC engines and showcased its updated look of the entire Evinrude E-TEC engine line-up, including new graphics and additional graphite color models.

One of the four new engines is the Evinrude E-TEC 90 H.O., the newest horsepower available in the Evinrude E-TEC High Output Series. The other three engines introduced are part of an exciting new line-up called the Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series.

Tailored to meet the specific needs of pontoon owners, Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series outboards are available in 90, 115 and 150 horsepower options. Furthermore, the 90 HP engine comes in two different models – the E90SL and E90SNL. These new offerings are the ideal choice for any midsize-to-larger pontoon application.

Features of the Pontoon Series include:
•Advanced Motor Mounts – reduces vibration by up to 40%, giving consumers a smoother, quieter and more comfortable boating experience
•Comes standard on the 90 and 150 HP models
•Optimized Gear Ratio – provides additional thrust for quicker acceleration, improved throttle response and greater maneuverability while at the dock
•Comes standard on the 90 and 115 HP models
•Remote Oil Tank – extends time between fill ups to 100 hours or more and allows easy access for checking and refilling
•Comes standard on the E90SL model and offered as an accessory on E90SNL, 115 and 150 HP models
 The following features come standard on all Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series engines:
•High Power-to-Weight Ratio – improves fuel efficiency to reduce operating costs and to extend range
•Lower Emissions – up to 50 times lower levels of carbon monoxide than competitive models at idle seeds, significantly reducing exhaust fumes while having less impact on the environment
•Lower Maintenance – three years or 300 hours of no dealer scheduled maintenance means no annual tune-ups or oil changes, reducing operating costs, time in the shop and allowing for more time on the water

“The performance of pontoon boats is greatly improved when they are powered with outboard engines that match their unique design,” added Villemure.

Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series engines will be showcased at boat builder meetings throughout the summer, and delivery will begin in the fall.

Like all Evinrude E-TEC H.O. models, the Evinrude E-TEC 90 H.O. is intended to outperform any competitive 90 HP offering. Whether it’s on freshwater fishing, bay and flats or pontoon applications, the Evinrude E-TEC 90 H.O. fits every type of boating activity in this horsepower segment.

Features include:
•105.4 Cu. In. of Displacement – provides increased torque for quicker acceleration, and higher top speed than the competition
•More Low-End Power –makes pulling skiers, wake boarders or tubers easier than ever before, further contributing to a more enjoyable boating experience
•Lightweight Design – improved fuel efficiency, better handling and superior visibility while planning as well as less stress on the structural integrity of a boat’s transom
•True High Output Alternator - With more than twice the total output of competitors, the 90 H.O. will deliver enough power to run all of today’s outboard electronics with less chance of a dead battery

The 90 H.O. will be showcased alongside the Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series at boat builder meetings throughout the summer, and delivery to authorized Evinrude dealers will begin later this year.

The Evinrude E-TEC line of outboard engines will also receive an updated look in the form of an all-new graphics package. These new graphics will be featured on all Evinrude E-TEC models, including the popular H.O. series. Implementation of the new graphics will be gradually phased into production throughout July, and will be available to purchase shortly thereafter. Evinrude will expand its Graphite color offering to nine different models. Select offerings are available in 15, 150, 200, 225, 250 and 300 HP sizes. Orders for the new Graphite color are now being taken and will be available to consumers who want a dark, natural colored engine to complement their boat hulls and interiors by early fall.
