New Evinrude news...

[ Edited ]

I took a spin around the site to see if this has been discussed yet, but didn't find anything.  If I missed it, I apologize.

 

Evinrude is apparently coming out with a new engine or at least new engine news.  Any ideas?  Some think it may be a V8?

 

I kinda hope it's not a G2 version of the 135HO I am currently getting fitted to my new aluminum boat build  Smiley Embarassed

  1. I can guarantee you, it  won't be a V8. My guess is a 4 cylinder, probably inline.

Re: New Evinrude news...

Evinrude is seeing the rest of the outboard industry pass them by,  especially with with this latest trend in Mega Outboards.

 

Impractical is it may seem, people are paying big $ to put 3, 4 or 5 monster outboards on a 40+ foot hull, and once again, Evinrude is nowhere to be seen, (not even in the conventional recreational markets)

 

So it's hard to say, They may be bringing the "G2" platform down to the V-4's next. 

 

They might want to try to get the G2 to run right, and quit replacing powerheads before they do though.

 

I miss the G1's

Re: New Evinrude news...

With the clean rigging of the G2 and all its features, i'll bet its a 350hp G2. I'm not sure the G2 technology makes sense below 90hp. I could see them making a G2 inline 4 for the 115/90hp line.

Re: New Evinrude news...

Will the G1 135 HO still be produced?  If not, how long can one expect company support on it?

Re: New Evinrude news...

The 135 HO will be phased out as the G2 140 hp goes into production.

Evinrude still supports the 15 year old original E-TECS, carb motors from the '70s, '80s, '90s plus still provides maintenance parts for 50 & 60 year old outboards from the middle of the last century.
