Subaru exits small engine market:
Yamaha’s small engine division is expanding its reach in the generator and lawn and garden markets business with the acquisition of Subaru Industrial Power Products.
The deal, which is expected to be completed by October 2017, was reached between the Japanese parent companies, Yamaha Motor and Fuji Heavy Industries.
The deal came about after Fuji’s decision to stop producing Subaru multi-purpose engines by September 2017.
The deal will see Fuji transfer the technology relating to three multi-purpose engines in the EH Series of v-twin overhead valve range: the EH65, EH72 and EH65V to Yamaha.
