Surprising, great motor but their dealer network sucked! We were lucky to have Thurston's in the lakes region but that was it!

You can bet they have something cooking in the pipeline as BRP is always 5 steps ahead of everyone else..."Project Ghost" should be very interesting...

Default Evinrude and Johnson Outboard

were big back in the days. Remember well the races between them and Mercury. All were outstanding products!

If I was to choose between Mercury, Yamaha, and Evinrude for engines today, I would choose 'rude. Unfortunately, the dealer network sucks. As for Yamaha, they came out as a great engine. Not sure why they never caught on.

BRP is known to be extremely innovative. Can't wait for 'Project Ghost'.
Someday may never be an actual day.

Yamaha owns the biggest outboard engine market share in the world. They definitely caught on.
