    kawasaki ultra vs seadoo 215 horse 2 seater

    has anyone seen the video on you tube of the kawasaki ultra 250 and a seadoo the video shows the seadoo beating the kawasaki but the kawasaki is just cruisin. My question is talking about the new seadoo rxp 2 seater and the kawasaki ultra 250 also is there any yamaha that will compete or any other ski that is as fast as these two skis. I am looking in to buying a new ski and don't have much information. #1 which ski is most reliable and are the supercharged engines breaking down a lot. #2 which ski has the best 0-60. #3 which ski handles best #4 in your opinion what is the all around best ski keeping reliability in mind (i don't want to be fixing the ski every week). also what ever ski i choose it will remain stock. Looking forward to all of you experienced answers

    Yamaha may have something to compete in the next year or 2

    I would say the ultra has not been out long enought to know the reliability of it! And NO yamaha does not have a 4-stroke boat that will compete with the 250 or the RXP/T

    I replied in the Sea Doo areas to this as well.

    As stated there, Its tough to compare the 2. Ones a fast 3 seater and is huge.

    And although the RXP isnt small, its not nearly as big. 2 seats, not designed for the same kind of riding (IMO, 3 seaters=PWC tow rigs for fam fun, 2 seaters for one up water burnin)

    Both bout the same speeds. The Kawi appears to respond like nuts to mods so far though, but staying stock that won't matter.

    Steve, that video on you tube... I am the one riding the Ultra. The Ultra was not broken in during that video and the person shooting the video is a member on here as well. It was his ski. I was just checking it out prior to picking up my ski. I was by NO means racing the SeaDoo. LOL not even close. The Ultra will smoke THAT Doo. Can't vouch for others but that one for sure.

    Comparing the Ultra to the RXP is as redicilous as comparing JD's boat to Macs.
