Thread: Fastest PWC?

    Fastest PWC?

    There's a lot of debate about what is the fastest production personal watercraft, as well as what speeds modified craft will be able to reach. That's the subject of today's blog...as well as some insight into the reality of magazine and internet performance testing...

    I like how it puts the fzr as the slowest just "nipping at their heels". In our testing the numbers have been much different. Most of the fastest stock skis GPS we have tested have been oddly enough the 08-09 RXT-X's. We have had two run 69mph gps. Other than that pretty much all the skis seem to run 68mph and the acceleration has been so close. Most heads up drag racing we have done on stock skis puts them all close.

    I also like how it puts the RXP-X as the fastest out of the hole. By the end of the article it occurred to me that he probably hasn't ridden ANY of the skis in the story.

    Too bad there's no comment box...
