Superior Torque at Low- and Mid-RPM Range

Brief Summary

What makes boats jump on plane quickly, rather than struggling to slowly build up a head of steam to get on plane? It all has to do with torque at the low- and mid-RPM settings. The Evinrude E-TEC G2 line of 2-stroke outboards were introduced in 2014. These engines were a completely new design from a clean sheet of paper, using direct injection and a new combustion chamber designed in concert with professors at the University of Wisconsin, designed with a shape that optimizes power.
