BRP has signed an agreement with Tohatsu Corporation to supply a range of Evinrude outboard engines from 3.5-15 hp. The new engines will be available at BRP dealerships in early 2012, adding to BRP’s existing 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 Jose Boisjoli said. "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 has 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.
