The name on the cowling is legendary, and so was the debacle that almost brought it to ruin. Fortunately Bombardier has come to the rescue, and new Evinrude outboards are now leaving a 408,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Wisconsin. Among them is the 250-hp V-6 with FICHT ram injection. According to the company, the refined FICHT direct fuel-injection system delivers fast throttle response, cooler piston temperatures, and smoother running throughout the entire rpm range. Along with these come superior fuel economy and low emissions. Features include a freshwater flush port that works without running the engine, SystemCheck warning system with visual and audio alarms, targeted oil injection for complete engine lubrication, and a 35-amp alternator with voltage regulator and battery isolation.
