2007 RXT - does less weight egual less strength?
G'day all. Im from down here in OZ and my new 07 RXT will be here in 2 weeks! While quizzing the dealer about the changes over the 06 model, he mentioned that seadoo have made the RXT lighter. At first I thought this was awesome, thinking that the lighter weight would make the craft quicker and more nimble to ride. but I'm now wondering if they have sacrificed strength and ride quality for less weight? Does anyone know exactly what they did to lighten these crafts?
2006 RXT - 394 kg's dry
2007 RXT - 370 kg's dry

I don't know what the weight savings is, but the front storage has been changed drastically. All of the Storage changes point to less weight and less manufacturing cost, not convenience.
The front hood is much lighter, the storage bay isn't finished with a plastic liner anymore.

The 2007 GTX and Limited use the new flimzy lighter hood. The 2007 RXT useds the old style hood. Both have decreased storage capacity from prior years due to the insane removable tub used this year. The weight savings on the RXT come from the hull...BRP is quiet about this. Personally I think it was a cost cutting measure that will result in a compromised hull. Less glass, less resin= lower manufacturing cost.

Not what I wanted to hear Richard! I just ordered on of these! Oh well, 3 year warranty if it fails!

Richard ALSO thought the Kawi 250 was the hot ticket

I was told to not consider trading my 2006 RXT for a 2007, and I trust the guy that told me this had a reason. same guy also told me to pick an '06 over an '05.
