    New Honda Test Facility

    Honda Motor Corporation has recently announced that they are building a state of the art boat engine/watercraft test facility on the site of the old BRP Seadoo testing facility in Grant FL. The location is directly on the Indian River with reasonably close access to the Atlantic Ocean. BRP had closed the test area after it received extensive hurricane damage a few years ago and moved their operations to a private lake in Palm Bay, FL. The Honda facility is scheduled to open by August.

    This is an encouraging move on Hondas part...now if they would only do something with their PWC dealer network !

    Thanks for the update. Looks like they are going to stick it out for awhile.

    I can practically see the place from across the river when I'm on my house roof deck. Should be interesting !! Even more so when actually riding the river.

    I remember that place we had a house across the river next to the old abandon marina, Matt

    This is single most promising new I've heard from Honda since the introduction of the old-mold hulls.

    Maybe Honda will see the HUGE gaping gap in the market that will appear in 2009 with the exit of the gpr, and find a way to take advantage of that hull size.

    I can dream, right?
