Kind of what i expected, they didn't change a damn thing. They are living off of the rental market and obviously that is all they care about at this point and time.
They are getting left in the dust performance-wise (comparing stock-for-stock).
Even with the rental market locked in for Yamaha, Sea-Doo is eating their ass in total revenue----have been for a long time, and the trend will continue. The longer they wait to do something (if ever), then the longer people have to think about the other brands out there when considering "off-the-showroom-floor" performance.
I personally am pumped up about the possible Kawi SC release in September !
For all the GPR fans, at least you have another year to get one---but damn, i can't believe that they didn't even attempt to change the paint/graphics at least.

The paint scheme isn't even different! What a waste.... I guess I will be looking at an 06 or older ski now...

They are probably redirecting and focusing their research & development money towards the new platform for another year.
Kinda good to see the two stroke still available for another year IMHO.
I agree, the new KAWI will be a machine to keep our eyes peeled on this year.

Well I hate to say it but I guess my next ski wont be a yamaha, I have to buy another one soon (wife wants her own), so I was waiting for the latest and greatest and once again they didnt produce. It also seems like they are trying to gay up the vx110 as well.
On the positive side though, if the 1300 2-stroke is around another year, that means the aftermarket wont stop working on go fast parts for them just yet.
