BRP owns Evinrude.

Evinrude has the E-tec two stroke. This is an efficient (and emissions friendly) two stroke engine. Worldwide emissions standards are tightening when it comes to offroad vehicles (snowmobiles, 4 wheelers, etc.), so it doesn't take Nostradamus to see that that the E-tec will "drift" into those markets.

Two strokes will also probably return to the street. There is a company in Australia that uses similar technology to the E-tec in scooter engines. Two strokes are less expensive to produce- at least if you don't add in the license fees that must be hefty on these new technologies.

I, Nostracheesebeast, predict the return of the two stroke for the street by 2013. Unfortunately, in 2012 the Mayan calender resets and the world ends. Further, Cthulhu will rise and feast upon the hot salty flesh of the hapless masses who are lucky enough to survive the Mayan onslaught.

Any questions?
Should we baste ourselves in butter or steak sauce?
