    RXP vs Kawa STX-15F

    Do any of you have any experience racing a stock RXP against a stock Kawa STX-15F? I rode my friend's STX-15F and it was pretty fast on the take off. He claims that he could beat an RXP off the line. He wants to race me when I get my RXP from the shop. Just want to know if I'm in for a beating.

    Holeshot is about the same. Driver skills will get the holeshot because they are pretty close.

    We just ran a brand new Kawasaki 15f in the FL keys last
    week. My son, 130 lbs was running a 951cc bored and stroked
    SeaDoo GSX LTD. About 3/4 tank gas. The Kawa smoked us
    by about 3/4 boat lengths. I realize this is not an RXP but I have
    to say I was impressed with a non supercharged, non intercooled
    ski could run that fast. Now I understand this Kawa uses a "Ninja"
    motor like their motorcycles. I would imagine if you soup 'em up
    you'd have a good rig.

    I have a glimmer of information that might surprise a few people. "Ducati" is producing prototype marine engines.

    After a hundred feet you'll leave him in the spray.

    I guess that means no shot on beating him out of the hole. Plus, I'm 240lbs and my friend is 180lbs....I need to lose some weight...

    With my bone stock RXP not running good,I slowly pulled my buddies 15 F.I haven't raced him since I got my rpm's back.But I will say this,the 15 F is a very fast,very good handling machine no doubt.I wouldnt mine owning one. Wonder how it would do against an RXT,after all,it is a three seater.

    DUCATI?

    Awe come on now, they can't produce a bike that stays in one piece and they want to make PWCs?

    Maybe they'll get it right this time.
