    I just love how the ultra 150's flirted with 70, how the ultra 250's flirted with 70 and when they are promoting Riva's products their stock boat was all of the sudden a 65.5 mph ski, you don't lose 4-5 mph in heat and humididty.. and neither of my U-150 could crack 65 stock... Bah hum-bug.... WW=WHATEVER.. 100 times the info can be found right here..

    I found the artical most interesting. I have not had the oportunity to ride a 250 yet. I can only relate to what I have read that the acceleration
    on the 250 is awsome. I would have to agee with that. Here is what I find interesting--and I am only quoting from the artical. The 250 stock 0-30 time 1.96 seconds---modified with current modes available 1.76 seconds.

    RXP stock 0-30 time 1.78 seconds (on par with moded 250) and the moded RXP 0-30 1.45 seconds. No matter what side of the fence you are on --there is a big difference in the two boats. Two tenths of a second is a huge difference in a drag race weather you are on land or water.

    And then again you are comparing a 2 seater to a 3 seater?

    I agree with you Harry. The ULTRA not only being a 3 seater is hundreds of pounds heavier and is showing only 10'ths of a second off the RXP. I would expect more out of the RXP, putting everything in perpective. 10th's of a secound on glass may mean a half boat lengh at best. But add a little chop or more and then you will see a difference.

    The biggest difference in the 250 vs the Seadoo stuff is that the 250 will accelerate like that even if you have 1.5' cross waves and you nail it from a dead stop. The most impressive thing about a 250 is how it accelerates through chop, waves or even right through another boats aerated wake. It hooks really hard.

    On dead smooth glass water, my (wife's actually) 250 only barely out accelerates my RXT (well, it pulls a few lengths, but I usually catch up and sometimes pass). But, in the real world of chop and rollers from other boats, it just flat out takes off and leaves me to catch up while my RXT keeps coming unhooked, etc.

    I just got my skegs in. Those and the green wheel are going into my RXT today to put an end to her reign of nonsense, laughing, and acceleration.
