Has anyone heard any rumours on whether the R-15X will be a reality for 2009 or 2010? I am very interested to know if this is a possibility...

I figure the 200 bhp engine in a smaller lighter weight hull, maybe around 700 lbs (less would be better) would be somthing to pay attention to. If Honda continues the theme of the lean-in, XP style boat they will have a winner for sure. I know i will be looking hard at it if it comes to market.

I just got a survey from Honda on mine and I let them have an honest opnion on lots of things. I did not bash them, or give them a hard time, but just an honest opinion.

Are we talking about an R-15X for real here? Not the F15x, but a 2 seater?
I could seriously see myself buying a bad ass 2 seater like that. I imagine it would be very comparable to the RXP then. Even the R-12x can hang with an RXP from 10-50mph, so the extra displacement and overall 20% hp increase should make it pretty close.

Yes the two seater was what i was getting at. If you can imagion a slightly more extreme version of the R-12x but with the new engine i think that would be the ski to beat. It's all about keeping the weight down, if honda wants to they could make the best sport ski out there. It's time to find a 4 stroke replacement for my 99 XP and so far nothing is out there that is anything like it.
Bring on the two-up R-15X honda!

At least you got a survey. Honda has a good product but the dealers and corp dont care about me as a honda F12 owner and the fact I want to buy a F15 and generally their pwc business (too many atvs and bikes I guess).
