The history of the creation of Johnson outboard motors is, in fact, the history of outboard motors in general. In 1903, the Johnson brothers of Indiana built their first motor.
In 1921, the Johnson brothers began mass production of a 2-horsepower outboard motor. Johnson engines were the first to use such innovative solutions as electric start, exhaust through the propeller hub, a system for controlling the speed and their automatic reduction when the engine overheats. In 1952, the millionth Johnson motor was manufactured.
In 2001, Bombardier Recreational Products bought the right to own popular trademarks. After the reorganization of the company and changes in the technical process, the production of engines reached a qualitatively new level. Each year the model range was replenished (for example, 4-stroke engines appeared), volumes increased. Introducing the new 2005 range of Johnson engines.
Four-stroke Johnson 90; 115; 140; 200 and 225 hp
Four-stroke models with four in-line cylinders are available in 90, 115 140hp models. Powerful models with six cylinders V-arrangement - 200 and 225 hp The engines feature low noise levels and economical fuel consumption. Four valves per cylinder and dual overhead camshaft deliver maximum speed and power. The best acceleration characteristics are provided by EFI digital multi-channel injection. The 54 amp generator ensures that your boat's electrics work even in towing mode. All engines meet the most stringent emission requirements. Johnson is the smallest and lightest four-stroke in its class.
Four-stroke Johnson 25; thirty; 40; 50; 60 and 70 hp
Johnson 25-70 Four Stroke Outboard Motors Available in 40 and 50 hp three cylinder models. and four-cylinder 60 and 70 hp models. with EFI injection. The four-cylinder, single-overhead camshaft powertrain and digital sequential multi-channel fuel injection provide Johnson with 60 and 70 hp. smooth operation and maximum efficiency. The motors have excellent acceleration characteristics, easy cold starts, balancing and tilt adjustments for better steering performance. Johnson has 40 and 50 hp. a three-cylinder in-line power unit with a double overhead camshaft is used. New models - three-cylinder Johnson 30 and 25 hp. They are distinguished by reliable starting, fuel economy, excellent acceleration and quick opening of the throttle valve.
Four-stroke Johnson 4; five; 6; eight; 9.9 and 15 hp
Single carburetor models 4 are presented; five; eight; 9.9; 15 h.p. Excellent performance in responsiveness, fuel economy and noise level. A two-cylinder in-line power unit with the same overhead camshaft provides the best combination of power and efficiency. Johnson 15 and 9 hp - manual and electric start. Johnson 8 hp - manual start and tiller with Twist-Grip handle. Johnson 15 and 9.9 hp - steering with tiller or optional remote control.
Differs in durability and high power density ratio. You get maximum power in a compact and lightweight engine that is free of valves, springs, camshaft and timing belts. Protective anodes in critical places prevent galvanic corrosion, pump casing and all fasteners are made of stainless steel. A 13-layer Deep Guard coating and a special anti-electrolytic paint will extend engine life in both fresh water and seawater.
Two-stroke Johnson 150 and 175 hp
Two-stroke Johnson 175 and 150 hp Features: easy handling and safety. V-arrangement of six cylinders (at an angle of 60 degrees). The Power Path fuel delivery system delivers fuel directly to each cylinder for fast acceleration and top speed. Speed Limit Information System S.L.O.W. protects the motor from overheating and automatically slows down the overheated motor. The Fas Trak lift-lowering system allows you to change the angle of its tilt.
Two-stroke Johnson 90 and 115 hp
Fas Trak system, adjustable chilled water sensor, four V-shaped cylinders (60 degree angle). OIS 2000 electronic ignition (with optical sensor) provides quick and easy starting. The one-piece Uni-Forget crankshaft and redesigned gearbox ensure maximum engine durability and efficiency.
Two-stroke Johnson 25; thirty; 40 and 50 hp
Johnson 25, 30, 40 and 50 hp motors are presented. Johnson 40 and 50 hp models They have a high specific power factor, have a 12 A alternator, two carburetors, a balancing and tilt system. The use of the Uni-Forget solid-forged crankshaft significantly increases the service life of these engines.
