how reliable are they?
Everyone knows how reliable Honda cars, motorcycles, and generators are but how about the Honda skis? I see some local dealers have some 08's and 09's still for sale at decent prices. How is the ride? What is Top speed of the F-15? Should I be concerned about a ski sitting in a creat for 2-3 years?
Thank you for any feedback, good or bad.

it is very very reliable do a search you wont find nothing problematic on 15x , it the best ski on gas , for handling ? i did not try that many other ski , ride the seadoo but not hard enough to say it good or bad . they make 65 mph stock . the big problem whit mph there is no trim and they ride to low stock . install a ride plate you will run near 70 mph maybe more . mine run 72 mph whit very little , stock under hood .

Reliabilty is no issue with any Honda, do your research and you will find no haters with the F15x, however with so many new skis to choose from do your homework before you buy one, some dealers are giving way better discounts than others. I bought mine 2 years ago and it was in a crate for 2 years, no issues ever with mine. The positives of the F15x out wiegh the negatives by far, but with every ski you can find some things that can be better. Overall it was probably the best ski you could buy hands down until maybe 2011, now with all the competion and 5 years later after Honda created this beast, the choosing is much more difficult now than it was then. Happy hunting

How does the Honda handle in the chop compared to other 3 seaters?

In chop it is still probably the best ski you can buy, period!

That is the only ski that could compare to the F15x in chop but I still believe the Honda is better, but the Honda gas mileage is incedibly good and far better than the 300!

Some dealers still have these skis (F15x) and are offering $4000 off MSRP. I found one for $9599. Deal or no deal????

I would be worried long term about part availability. Personally I would rather buy a 300 for a couple grand more.

Parts are not an issue. They don't break. Consiquently spares not used much.
