BRP Inc. (TSX:DOO; NASDAQ:DOOO) is proud to announce the launch of a new e-powertrain, the Rotax E10, bolstering its electric offering for karting. The new product was presented today at the Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) Grand Finals in Portimao, Portugal, where the international RMC karting community was gathered. With the all-new E10 48V high performance racing electric powerpack, BRP-Rotax opens a new world by offering consumers all the advantages of electrification with the same performance, ease of use and low cost of ownership that have become hallmarks of the Rotax brand.
Another milestone in the longlasting history of Rotax Karting took place this week: the 125.000th edition of a Rotax 125 MAX engine left the assembly line at BRP-Rotax in Gunskirchen, Austria. Introduced in 1997, the Rotax 125 MAX engine can proudly be named a success story.
Former F1 race driver and four time class winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Jan Magnussen, who was competing at the event in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, was clearly impressed by the power of the Rotax E20.
