Anybody got the scoop on the new E-TECH?

Mod 8 interceded in a thread with about a prototype Evinrude OB. Seems a pic from a hired source
shared it on THT and BRP called them out, along with other sites.

Subsequently, a June announcement is evidently coming about a new high HP OB
From BRP. Sorta wild to see such play out but how about a new &
Improved engine delivering 300+ HP with a 10-20% fuel efficiency gain?

Anyone read anything elsewhere?

I did a few searches and did not find anything.

I get updates from all the mfg's and BRP has teased in its latest email that a big announcement is coming in June. Speculation is that they will unleash their new high HP engines.....

it is not exactly fresh news, but Evinrude recently announced the second generation of ETEC outboards. It is just the big ones for now--200 to 300hp. I would speculate that eventually the entire line will shift to Gen 2, unless the public rejects the Buck Rogers styling of the gen 2's. :-)
