    2010 Yamaha Recommedation Please

    Familiar with Seadoo but not Yamaha or Kawi.

    What model would you suggest in Yamaha to compete against the 2010 RXT-X 260 or the RXT IS 260?

    and how would they compare...

    I like do like speed and don't like to get beat but I am also looking for reliablity.

    I run mostly on calm water rivers and lakes so rough water is not an issue for me.

    I have a 2005 RXT now that I am keeping but the kids are getting older and I need a second craft for my wife and being the nice guy that I am I will giver her my old RXT (lol)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Alos is the resale value better on a Yamaha?

    Since you will be staying on mostly smooth water and are used to a 3 seater I would recommend an FZS. It handles the rough well but probably not as well as a SHO cruiser. We have a 100 hrs on our FZS and really love the ride and how it has responded to mods. The ability to run on regular unleaded is also a nice benefit.

    Add a rideplate to the FZS and you'll be at 70 mph....

    I have been a yamaha fan for years due to the reliability factor. I have a 2000 Yamaha GPR and it has never been in the shop. Not to say SeaDoo or Kawi is bad, I just have had a good experience with Yamaha.
