E-TEC 225 H.O.

Brief Summary

Rather than succumb to the 4-stroke technology that’s heavier, producing power on every other stroke, Evinrude’s torque is raging at the first stroke of the throttle right up through the last delivering more torque through the RPM range. Evinrude stood it’s ground in the 2-stroke market and rather than inventing new technology; they have made significant improvements on existing technology. They created the first engine to receive the Environmental Agency rating of 3 stars.

The Evinrude 225 H.O is available in several different types: DHL, DHX and HSL. The information on this page represents the DHL type unless specified.
