    Hello everyone!

    Just wanted to introduce myself. Quick question - Im in the market for a new PWC (currently own a 2002 GTX Limited) and am really interested in an RXP. Should I hold off until they release the 2006s or go ahead with an 05? I guess what I am trying to say is - is there any news on next years models??

    Thanks
    CO

    I dunno anything yet about the 06 models! Yyou might be able to save you some money towards the end of the summer, when the dealers are trying to clear out the remaining 05 inventory!

    That extra cash you save could go toward go fast parts! Just my Opinion!

    Welcome to the forum you grasp a great wealth info here!

    Rumor has it that there won't be any spectacular differences between the 2005 and 2006. If you like blue or possibly bright red/black, wait for '06.

    I would go for the 05 and enjoy it now.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Rumors has it that kawi is suppose to come out with a totally new type of ski to give the RXP the run for its money (dropping the ultra 150 and stxr from its line up because the the EPA law takes effect on banning carb skis in 2006). I would wait until they release the 06 skis later this year to find out what happens.
    That might to the time to trade my RXP off if kawi produces a belt driven SC ski that stays hooked up better & just as fast or faster than the rxp.

    If Kawi or anyone comes out with something similar or better, I'll have a great second ski on the trailer!

    Kawi would have to come out with a new engine block too...the 1200cc motorcycle engine they stroked to 1500cc is more than maxed out. Strokers have torque but are not high RPM motors. The SD 4-tec could be stroked to 2000cc and still have a "squarer" bore than the 1500 Kawi has now. The 4-tec motor was designed with room to grow. Similiar to the 283 ci Chevy V-8. Now they are getting 7 litres out of that basic block design.
