BRP has signed an agreement with Tohatsu Corporation to supply a range of Evinrude outboard engines from 3.5 to 15 HP. The new engines will be available at BRP dealerships in early 2012, adding to BRP’s existing line-up of Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines of 15 to 300 HP.
“We believe Tohatsu Corporation, who builds quality and market-proven engines, to be the right supplier to complete the Evinrude line-up,” said José Boisjoli, president and CEO.
“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, Wisconsin, U.S. This agreement further supports its commitment to the Evinrude brand.
