Rotax Karting

Over the past 30 years, BRP-Rotax has established itself as a dominant player in the kart engines business. In the early 1980s, our engineers began to adapt already popular Rotax motorcycle engines to kart racing. Rotax kart engines offer a safer and more affordable karting experience without compromising the fun factor.

XPS Kart Tec

Rotax kart engines rev up to 14,500 rpm and due to that fact they are highly stressed which makes lubrication a real challenge. The kart sport has special needs. Common products as available for the automotive and motorcycle market do not really fulfill this requirements.
After years of testing and searching for a production partner, BRP started in 2010 to offer a proper portfolio – under the XPS KART TEC brand - of high quality lubrication, maintenance as well as cleaning products.
