    Easy Rider: 2014 Sea-Doo GTX 155



    It wasn’t long after we reviewed Yamaha’s 2014 FX HO Cruiser that we were invited to take the equally-equipped 2014 GTX 155 out for a ride. Both skis share the same market segment (apart from the Yamaha’s next-level-up stadium-style seating), particularly those watersport enthusiasts looking for a happy medium of comfort and reliability, and best of class fuel mileage. And throughout our time aboard the Sea-Doo we couldn’t shake the tendency to contrast the two.

    Unfortunately, a throwdown shootout between the two is not something you’ll find here. But as Kawasaki’s staid naturally-aspirated Ultra LX is the brand’s only entry in the non-huffer segment, the only two really taking this class seriously are Sea-Doo and Yamaha, and so we will be drawing some comparisons between them.
    It wasn’t long ago when Bombardier first announced the “high output” 155-horsepower Rotax plant. By today’s standards the successor to the brand’s lowest producing 130HP engines seems anemic. But at the time and well up until the 215 and 260HP supercharged models, 4-Tec 155 was plenty of push to propel the previous “Phoenix” hull.

    According to SeaDoo's site, the new orange color is called Alloy Orange while the orange on the GTR215 is called Orange Burst. And on the GTI130 they call it Sunshine. And I can't even tell if it's exactly the same color.

    MAN! I scoured the site looking for the official name. OK, I'll have to update the article. Thanks, Ziggy.

    I love SeaDoo's orange! When I was on the local showroom about a year ago, they were calling it Sunrise (I think). I've just read somebody calling it Sunburst. And we have Orange Burst. Are they all the same color or is Alloy different? I mean, surely they wouldn't have all those names for the exact same color, right?

    I know the Alloy is definitely different and new for 2014...it's darker.
