Default BRP is on a roll

BRP, the owner of the Evinrude brand, now exceeds the value of its former parent.

I'm very Happy with the ETEC on my skiff. zero issues from my 2016 75hp. Huge torque, great fuel economy, near zero maintenance. As far as oil, I burn 1 gallon of xd-100 every 40 hours. Their boat business will pick up.

they're sea doo brands are killing it, they should stick with they're core growing revenue instead of trying to compete in the OB market with an overcomplicated hybrid OB trying to keep up with emissions and fuel economy of 4 strokes, or come out with they're own 4 stroke.Maybe stay in the small OB market for few years. No hating on my end,not putting down anyone with much success with they're products, or failures, just an observation

can you explain to me how you being happy with your "huge torque" outboard has got anything at all to do with the market analysis mentioned?

Perhaps someone can explain how the OP's life is changed at his parts counter job with this news? That might be more interesting than the thread topic, and more insightful.

Other than that chit, Happy Thanksgiving y'all

I feel lack of consumer awareness is the reason. Atleast from my sea trials motors 115hp and under the etec felt superior. BUT, as the market analysis shows, there is lack of demand for their marine products. The old 2 stroke smoker drama ,IMO, is something they can't shake off. I feel in the smaller segment they have a winner, but how do you make the consumer aware with a perceived older technology? If I was their CEO, I'd look hard at the numbers. If they are selling more 150 or less motors, maybe kill off everything above that? I don't know, just wishing the best for a struggling division

Trying to keep up with emissions and fuel economy of 4 strokes??? The G2 don’t just keep up, they destroy them in both categories, lol. Lowest emissions of any outboard by a large margin, and 15-20% better fuel Econ.

Maybe, but.... You are not going to convince four stroke guys to switch back over to two stroke no matter what numbers you claim. That is why the resale will never be a strong as is with same boat with four stroke.

I am still pleased with my 2014 175 ETec.
Next boat will likely be an inboard though.

Good....I think it's good for all boaters to have a company still trying to give us a two stroke option. Hopefully they will dump some of the profits into finally producing a two stroke motor that will be reliable as it's competition and at the same time keeping the fuel efficiency and torque the G2 is known for. I'm rooting for them.

Kudos for trying to keep her on topic!

No chance and I think this was the OPs real point.

I was fishing their sea wall in Stuart last week. They were running their test mule with the two motors on it. What kind of boat is that? That thing looks like an antique.

"overcomplicated' ? what? they have less moving parts than a 4 stroke.

EFI or carbureted 4 stroke is inherently more complicated than a 2 stroke.
Add variable timing to a 4 stroke (which just about every car engine has now), and we up the ante even more.

the DFi 2 stroke is not a hybrid, just an evolution that took place like 19 years ago.

Seems pretty clear that a few on here should consider applying for the CEO position at BRP. They are clearly more qualified to lead a publicly traded high technology company than the current CEO.

Yep, the Yamaha fan boy troll really adds value with the BRP trashing.
