09' and 20' SeaDoo/Yami
Let's just slide HSR to the side for a sec. SeaDoo is always looking to build faster skis...Without the threat (real or imagined) from HSR, has anyone heard of SeaDoo or Yami's plans for next year? Personally, I just unloaded an 05 RXT initially for an RXPX. Now with all this hype and just the fact that these 4tecs are capable of producing so much HP, I thought it might be wise to wait a year and see what the OEM's will have to show for 09. I decided to forego the contract I made at the NYC boat show because of this (Ill be riding a 96 XP/ and a stock 97 SPX FOR 0...But Im wondering, what's next from SeaDOO? another model year for the X skis? more aggressive cams/timing and internals? different 4tec? lighter hull with a 4tec variation? thoughts please...

I thought the HSR are not coming to America.

What I think, and I have no concrete proof to support this, is that something completely new will be released from SD in '09. At least from a cosmetic point of view. SD normally, with regards to the 2 seaters, does a redesign every 3-4 years. GSX came out in 96, replaced by RX in 2000, which was replaced by the RXP in 2004. I thought the RXP would be replaced or redesigned this year but only slight changes (colour, finger throttle, VTS etc) were made. Obviously significant changes were done to increase HP, (X-charger, IC). So I think we may see a variation of the HP related changes done to the P/T-X incorporated in next years model, along cosmetic changes. Thats my guess, based on BRP's history.
I put a deposit for a RXP-X, but often question if I should have waited until next year. I doubt we'll hear anything official until fall as it will effect 08 sales, if something completely new is planned. Just my 2 cents.

Hopefully Yamaha puts the SHO engine in the GPR hull
