Can anyone tell me the top speed of a 2005 R-12X. Also is the 2006 the same. And how does it compare to a ultra 150 in every respect thanks.Looking to buy a ski and was thinking about the honda.I bought the 1999 ultra when i first came out it did 66.3 to 66.7 MPH with a radar gun check about 10 times i liked the ski. It beat all other ski's back then and i had a the best holeshot. I i haven't rode in years. Was looking to get back into the game. And was looking at the honda

I have a 2004. I have not shot it with radar however my buddy has 2 2005 Ultra 150's. When we run hole shot it's not even a contest. Honda blows it away. On wide open, the Ultra is maybee 1 mile an hour faster. Just barely pulls away. That really bugs the heck out of me. So I always just make sure I get the good hole shot on him. He'll never catch up before we run out of water. I'm going to get the alfa kit. Should slove that isssue. Oh, although no radar, speedo usually reads about 63-65, aqd even a 69 once. I realize it probably off but just wanted to add.

I wouldn't direct you to any particular ski or model, but you need to decide what you want in a ski ... if you still really enjoy having the 'fastest ski on the lake', you really should look at ALL the manufacturers and do some demo rides ... the Honda has some strengths but top speed is not one of them, there are other skis that are better suited to the pursuit of top speed. There are a LOT of very fast (65 mph plus) 2 and 3 seaters out now, especially 2008 models ... its worth doing some exploring.

These two Kaw's are the only experience I have had with them. And my Honda for that matter. My first ski. Both the Kaw’s only have about 40 hours on them and seem to run good. But who knows. Maybe they need to be looked at. Since we are both new to the PWC world we just figured it is what it is. The Honda is a little higher HP I believe, and we just ran them head to head and took it for what it was.
