Johnson Outboards is a maker of outboard motors. The original company to make Johnson inboard motors and outboard motors was the Johnson Bros. Motor Company of Terre Haute, Indiana, United States. A few years after the Johnson brothers' factory in Terre Haute was destroyed by a tornado in March 1913, the brothers relocated to South Bend, Indiana and then Waukegan, Illinois.
  The company was first acquired by Outboard Marine Corporation (OMC) and then later by Bombardier Recreational Products.


Johnson has changed a lot since they were bought by BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products). Now Evinrude, which is also a brand of BRP, has the widest range of models, and Johnson now only sell two stroke (carbureted) and four stroke engines in a horsepower-range of 9.9 to 25, while Evinrude sells between 25 and 300. Johnson has also only sales in a few countries compared with Evinrude.
