For 2016, following with the theme of PWCs following motorcycles, Sea Doo is launching their new RXP-X 300 and RXT-X 300. This time, it’s a supercharger and a bunch of fancy electronics and changes aimed at improving control.
The Specs That Matter
Both skis are built using an all new, Rotax 1630 ACE, which is supercharged and makes 300 horsepower. To achieve this, they used a longer stroke than their previous 1503 engine and now use a new, faster spinning supercharger which produces 30% more boost. This engine has been tuned to deliver more torque, which means you carry more momentum and grunt as you ride through chop. You also feel less lag as the ski moves in and out of the water.
Both skis also come with Sea Doo’s Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) system which essentially points a jet in the opposite direction of the main to help the ski stop, which is does 100 feet sooner than any other ski with some sort of braking system.
