Evinrude Launches New 150 HP Power Tiller
Sturtevant, Wis. – Evinrude announced today the industry’s first 150 HP tiller controlled outboard with integrated power steering assist and digital shift and throttle, the E-TEC G2 Power Tiller. Designed with beginners to advanced anglers in mind, the new 150 HP Power Tiller is easy to use, even in the worst conditions.
Evinrude makes your boat smarter.
“While the competition is focused on releasing larger and larger engines, we spend our efforts developing products that matter to our core market,” said Tracy Crocker, president of the BRP Marine Group. “Because of the E-TEC G2 architecture, we are able to offer incredible features at a value that our customers appreciate. Unlike other manufacturers, our power tiller doesn’t require accessory power steering kits, additional batteries or recharging systems. This allows us to offer an elegant solution at a significantly lower price point in the outboard sweet spot – the 150 HP category.”
Evinrude makes your boat go further.
Combining the power tiller with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 Intelligent Piloting System, a suite of integrated engine features like iSteer, iTrim and iControl, instills confidence in all boaters. The 150 HP Power Tiller model has zero steering torque feedback and offers boaters exceptional running quality with precision performance. The comfortable twist-grip throttle has adjustable friction capability to fine-tune resistance. It is easy to control the running attitude of the boat with iTrim, as well as the thumb operated tilt and trim switch. The convenience of Touch Troll push-button operation for setting trolling speed is perfect for anglers. In addition, to reduce strain on the driver, the Evinrude E-TEC G2 Power Tiller has adjustments for both vertical and horizontal arm position, enhancing comfort and control.
Evinrude makes your boat better.
All Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines make boats stronger with up to 30% more torque, go further with best in class fuel efficiency, and cleaner with up to 75% fewer total regulated emissions compared to leading four-stroke outboard engines. They also make boats smarter with the most user-friendly ownership experience with no break-in period, one-touch winterization, and no dealer-scheduled maintenance for five-years or 500 hours. All Evinrude E-TEC engines come standard with five-year factory backed coverage and no engine oil changes – ever.
