    I heard a rumour that it's gonna become a four cylinder, have a different cam and oiling system.

    Won't be 2ltr as some have hinted.

    People have been saying for years that it needs to happen, BUT no one really knows. We can all hope and dream but we will all have to wait and see. I would not expect it for 2015..... New ski with the Spark this year, New hulls with the GTI line up this year and maybe new hulls for the S3 next year.

    My guess is BNG only for the RXT and the GTR since they are 3 years on the same colors....

    You have to think its coming soon. Especially with what Yamaha and Kaw did for this year.

    It really won't take much Research and Design to pull another 20HP to 40HP out of it. Slightly larger supercharger, beefed up valve train, pull an extra 150-200RPM would do it on the power side. Should put a better intercooler in it also.


    Maybe at some point in the future they add a cylinder. Rumors have been going around for years on a 2.0 liter. But I'm not really sure its needed. What they have can put the power out and easily be competitive with the top of the market.

    I've read in some article that the plan was to change the head in a twin cam and change the exhaust in watercooled header type

    What do you think about 2 ACE motors combined for a 4 cylinder 1800cc turbocharged 280 HP Sea Doo?

    I THINK you need to go back to school James...you can't count!

    The ACE motors are 3-cylinder...so that would be a 1800cc 6-cyl motor...

    Rotax has a good thing going with the 3-cyl platform...
