    Vicious Rumors and Vile Gossip: Sea-Doo Gains Boost and Displacement For 2016



    To all who were witness to it, Jean-Baptiste Botti’s performance at the 2014 IJSBA World Finals was nothing short of masterful, comparable to an accomplished violinist beautifully performing Bach’s “Adagio” before a reverenced amphitheater. The Frenchman’s black-and-red Rotax Racing RXP-X never once faltered, consistently outpacing its Pro Open Runabout challengers, the whine of the centrifugal supercharger whistling over the cacophony of pursuing turbos.

    Yes, Botti bested a field populated by runabouts built by some of the best minds and technicians in the sport, and to add insult to injury, did so on a RXP-X employing impressively standard equipment. According to a report by Vasilis Moraitis, the factory Rotax runabout rode on a slightly modified and lightened RXP-X hull assisted by a pneumatic trim tab and drop nozzle system. Likewise, the hood and seat were also lightened but maintained much of the factory appearance.

    Doesn't Seadoo already have a 360hp ski called the "Black Edition"?

    A group decided to buy a bunch of P-X's and mod them to sell. Not truly a Factory 360 hp ski.

    I believe you're thinking about James Bushell's dealership 158 Performance out of the UK and their special limited Black Edition RXP-X 360. It was specific to their dealership and had a very limited warranty.
