    What is the $1,600 Difference in the GTX 215iS and GTX Limited 260iS

    I'm totally new to jet-skis. I went to the Demo Ride at Lake Norman yesterday and got to try out a jet-ski for the first time.

    I first rode the GTI 130 and to be honest, these 53 year old bones could not enjoy riding it very long. Then I got to ride the GTX 260iS. Wow what a difference. And the power was unreal. The ride was very comfortable also. I could ride it for a while.

    I was wondering just how much the power difference their would be and is there more than just the color seat and power over the GTX 215iS?

    I almost went with the gtx 215is, but in the end went with the 260is limited, taking delivery Tuesday. Welcome to jetsking, the 215is, would give all the fun you would want as well, would just come down to if you want to spend the extra money.

    The GTXis limited is very nice, a lot of bells and whistles.
    If the extra's don't mean anything to you, look at the RXTis, same 260hp of the limited, exact same features as the GTXis, and only $400 more than the GTXis.
    The $$ premium of the GTXis Limited isn't worth it IMHO.
    I bought one RXTis in March, and Just bought a second one yesterday for my wife, I'm 55, she's turning 50, we know what you mean about old bones!
