    Difference between 2006 VX 110HP and 2006 FX 140HP Engine?

    I am looking at 2 skis.

    1. 2006 FX 140
    2. 2006 VX110 Deluxe

    What is the difference in the engines?

    Larger more stable hull, adjustable trim & steering, electric bilge pump, 30 HP, different engine block, multi-port FI, 4-2-1 exhaust, etc.

    My understanding is that basically, the VX version of the MR-1 is just severely detuned. The compression is lower, the ECU is tuned for fuel economy and the lighter hull, etc. I suspect the detuned nature of the engine is why the VX is well regarded as the most reliable ski produced for nearly the past decade. The FX is a much bigger ski with more features, and also has a solid reputation for being a reliable unit.

    Picked up a very nice 2006 FX140 today w/ 88 hours. Really enjoyed the test ride. My XLT1200 is faster.

    Yes, that is correct. The VX is actually just a de-tuned FXHO engine.
