    WRONG WRONG WRONG! The 185 was the first Supercharged Engine. If its a 155 its normally aspirated The 185,215 and now 255 are Supercharged. The RXT is a sport version of the GTX comes with 255 and has no bording ladder and the RXT-X Stearing Head is like the RXP-X. Only the 155 can run 87 octane and 91 is recommended for the 185,215, and 255. There are other differences but these come to mind

    WOW! I'm with you, PEST...The 215's and 185's are supercharged, the 155's are not supercharged/naturally aspirated.

    Regarding the 2006 models:

    The 185's are Supercharged and the 215's are supercharged & intercooled.

    I think the only 215 GTX was the GTX limited and it had the supercharger & intercooler.

    Besides the huge difference of engine horsepower and relative price tags, the other main difference would be color. Opt for the 215 horsepower skis and then choose your color from there. --J

    Well, seems you would like to know more about the difference beside the engines. The GTX is heavier. It's considered a luxury ski, meant to ride three people. The RX models are sport and designed for 2.

    If these are '06s, all SC engines are 215 HP (it should say on the hull graphics somewhere). The GTX & the RXT are identical (hull, pump, engine). The GTX adds some "luxury" items (boarding step, multi-function display with depth finder, ect.) and a different paint scheme, and possibly the seat is a bit different.

    My 06 RXT has the boarding ladder and the depth finder. They must have been available options.

    That's incorrect. In 2006 the 185 GTX SC was still in production. It was white and silver. The differences between 215 and 185 are pump, intercooler, exhaust, pistons, ECU, FPR, allong with some other internals. The GTX SC LTD., RXP, and RXT from 2006 had 215 HP.

    NICE

    In what year did SeaDoo start changing the plastic trim piece on the hood or have they always been different?
