    Top Speed:
    RXP 215 = ~68mph
    RXP155 = ~55mph

    Acceleration:
    RXP 215 will destroy the RXP 155 throughout the powerband.

    Handling:
    Same hulls, so same handling except for speeds in excess of 60mph because the RXP 155 does not go that fast.

    Other issues:
    Reliability will go to the RXP 155 because it's a N/A motor and not designed for as high of performance. However the engine in the RXP 215 is the same powerplant and is a solid platform. There have been SC clutch problems but those can be easily fixed.

    Fuel, filling up the RXP 215 will cost you more. You have to run at least 91 oct which will cost you more, and it will not get as much GPH as the RXP 155 because of it's high performance nature.


    Hope this helps a little.
