Sturtevant, Wis., -- BRP unveiled four new Evinrude E-Tec
engines and showcased its updated look of the entire Evinrude E-Tec engine
line--up, including g 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.
"BRP's Evinrude brand is always looking for new ways to
enhance the consumer's experience on the water and we've just raised the bar with
these new models," Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP's
Marine Propulsion Systems division, said. "No other outboard manufacturer
produces pontoon-specific engines. This is just another example of BRP's innovative
mindset and desire to uphold its reputation as the industry leader in developing
Evinrude E-Tec Pontoon
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
Best-in-class features of the Pontoon Series include:
- Comes standard on the 90 and 150 hp models
- Advanced Motor Mounts - reduces vibration by up to 40
percent, giving consumers a smoother, quieter and more comfortable boating
- Optimized Gear Ratio - provides additional thrust for
quicker acceleration, improved throttle responses 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 re-filling
- 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
- 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 speeds, significantly reducing exhaust
fumes while having less impact on the environment.
- Lower Maintenance - 3 years or 300 hours of no dealer

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

90 H.O. fits every type of boating activity in this horsepower segment.
Best-in-class 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
- 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

today's outboard electronics with less chance of a dead battery.
"We are extremely proud of the performance and value of the
Evinrude E-Tec 90 H.O.," Chris Dawson, vice president and general manager of
BRP's International division. "By offering quicker hole shots, better throttle
response and higher top speed than the competition, the 90 H.O. is a game
changer in the 90 hp segment."
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.
