Evinrude Motor Detail

Evinrude E-Tec H.O. 90HP

Performance to the Max

THE H.O. SERIES. BLURRING THE LINE BETWEEN BOATING AND AVIATION. Like pushing limits? Then take a closer look at our High Output Series. Because they push limits about as far as they can go – and come with everything it takes to handle it.


These features are common across the High Output (H.O.) range.

Low Maintenance

Love maintenance? The hassle? The waiting? The expense? Try another outboard engine. Evinrude outboard engines put a big list of routine maintenance items where they belong. In the history books. It’s pretty simple. Where would you rather be? In for service? Or out on the water?

No Maintenance for 3 Years / 300 Hours

No inspections or adjustments, no changing gearcase lube, no spring tune-ups. For a full three years after that. Easy to own.

Fewer parts

Less parts than most four-strokes engines. No valves, belts, camshafts or pulleys to adjust or replace. Fewer parts, fewer problems, fewer repairs. More time on the water!

No oil changes

No mixing of oil and gas thanks to the E-CAL multi-point auto lube system. Oil is metered directly to critical engine points while complete combustion ensures that only the precise amount required is used: no oil ever escapes into the environment. There is no need for oil changes.

3-year, 300-hour spark plugs

Advanced iridium plugs – featuring a longer, more efficient spark. More hours between plugs and services.

Auto Storage

No need to go to the dealer. You can prepare your engine for winter yourself. So easy, you can do it at any time, in less than four minutes. Bottom line? More time on the water.

Power & Performance

What’s the goal of power and performance? Simple. Beat everything on the water in everything from speed and torque to fuel efficiency. Whether you are running slow, fast or anywhere in between. More power on the water!

Instant throttle response

When you say jump, we jump. Out of the hole and across the entire performance curve. Not just select points. The key is that every revolution is a power stroke, where as a four-stroke engine makes a power stroke every other revolution. Plus, the computer-controlled engine management system delivers the perfect fuel mix directly to the combustion chamber for hair-trigger response.

Less fuel

The engine management system makes more than 8 million calculations per second. You get the precise amount of fuel you need at any given rpm. Not a droplet more. A big advantage when you are running big water.

High torque

The natural two-stroke advantage combined with our super-natural fuel-injection and combustion system.

High horsepower

Our horses never hold back. You get your running speed faster. You hold it more consistently. Even when you’re pounding big waves on big water.

Less weight, more horsepower

You’re on plane faster, with less bow rise so you can see the open water in front of you. Simply better control and better handling.

Durability & Reliability

More time on the water. It starts with more time on the engineering table. Every part, every system is designed, built and tested to go the distance. We put a lot more in. You get a lot more out.

Easy starts

First time, every time. With one revolution of the flywheel.

No break-in period

You go flat-out, right out of the box, thanks to our boron-nitrate cylinder bores. It’s your time on the water.

Fewer parts, more peace of mind

No belts, camshafts or exhaust valves to break down. You can go a lot farther, knowing your engine will get you back.

Parts that last

Low-friction design for greater performance and longer life, under any load. Parts that are built better, tested longer.

Fail-safe protection

In the event of an overheat or other anomaly, the engine automatically reduces power to protect your investment, giving you a big five-hour window to get back without incurring engine damage.

High performance iridium plugs

More efficient spark, smoother running, longer life.

Sealed fuel system

Air can’t get in. Fuel won’t evaporate. No more gummed-up fuel systems. Your engine is well protected during storage.

Bigger alternators

Nearly twice the available amperage of competitive engines. Run more accessories with more confidence.

Clean & Quiet

Responsible play – In tune with nature. No oil changes. No worries about disposal or where the oil ends up. Plus every drop of oil in the fuel mix goes into combustion, not in the air or water.

Lower emissions

Three stars* from the toughest emission standard in the world – the California Air Resources Board. Plus, BRP, through its Evinrude brand, is the only outboard to win the EPA's Clean Air Technology Excellence Award**. Last but not least, we're the first two-stroke engine in more than 30 years authorised to operate on Lake Constance (Bodensee)***, in central Europe, one of the most rigourously protected bodies of water on the planet.

No smoke

Thanks to the advanced fuel and oil injection systems. You’ll breathe a lot easier when you’re out cruising a shoreline or trolling a weedline.

Less noise

Remarkably quiet, thanks to a combination of advanced cowling designs, an acoustically tuned exhaust system and 3-dimensional sound-dampening materials for reduced noise levels and a quiet idle.

Less vibration

Stratified combustion for incredibly smooth low-end performance. An engine that’s born to trail.
