    gp1300R vs Honda two seater turbo

    Question,
    I can get a 2004 or 2006 Yamaha gp1300R low hours or a Honda 2006 two seater turbo with 6 hours each one about $5,000.
    Both have good reviews.
    Any thoughts appreciated.

    The GPR. Hands down. Best watercraft ever. When they went to all 4 strokes, they should have just kept making the GPR and dropped the SHO motor in it.

    Do they have any idea how many they would sell? I'm just trying to figure out how they would have limited the speed to 65mph!

    This is so not a contest it's not even funny.

    GPR... hands freaking down. You're obviously gonna see a bit of a Yamaha bias in this forum, but seriously... that Honda sucks. I've ridden a few and all have been lackluster. Not to mention, all my friends that have them are CONSTANTLY pouring money in to repairing them.

    Go with the GPR 1300.I am a big Honda fan and took a close look at the Honda turbo but went with the Gpr with no regrets......NONE!!This GPR is my first ski and this one has it all and then some.
