    thoughts about a RXP 155 for my Girlfriend

    My Girlfriend is looking for a seadoo, she doesn't like being a passenger nor do I like having one so we are looking for a machine for her . I'd like to hear your take on the rxp 155 , I'm looking for something easy to maintain and reliable . Want to keep the price around 5K (canadian) , what should I being looking at?

    That wouldn't be a bad machine. Low maintenance with being N/A. The main question is would she prefer the extra stability of the 3 Seater like a GTX?

    If she ever wanted to carry passengers or pull something I would look for a 155 3 seater.

    My close friend did exactly what you are talking about. He got his girl a 2007 RXP 155. Its perfect for her since she is a novice rider. Not too much acceleration, extremely reliable, easy for a beginner to learn on, and the fuel economy is double that of his RXPX. Not to mention, she can get it up to around 60, so she will never fall too far behind (unless he wants her too )

    Just a thought, my wife learned on our 2005 RXT 215 and she loves how stable it is. She doesn't go too fast on it (40 ish) but she has told me on more than a few occasions that she was so happy to have the extra power when boats try to cut her off or if she needs to cut across a busy area of the lake. Kinda like the saying "better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it". Just my opinion.

    The 155hp skis are near bullet proof.
    Just compression test and ride the balls off whatever you plan on buying. If the seller won't let you test ride it walk away..

    I'd like a 155 for friends/family. It seems people hold on to them as they aren't for sale often.
    I hope she is not bitten by the speed-bug after a month of riding it...
    Good luck!

    The new price diff vs resale value doesn't favor the 155.
    You can always buy a higher HP ski and program an "R" key (rental key).
    It lightly limits the RPMs, boost and top speed leading to great fuel mileage. The ski is fun and barely stresses the engine.
    You also have a race ski by plugging in the yellow key.

    -trust me, most "techs" dont know what "R" Key means.
