Get the GPR. You won't be disappointed. I had a '97XP two years ago as my learner ski (I was 18 ) I got nice and comfortable with it for a season and a half, but eventually got tired of it for many reasons: it wasn't fast enough for me, it felt unstable riding 2-up, and not a lot of potential for modding.
Sold it for a 1200 dollar profit and put all of that money towards a 2002 GPR. Search around here and you'll find a WEALTH of information about its reliability, modding potential, and even motor swaps if you're so inclined. There's more than enough information to keep someone new to GPRs involved in just reading and researching for weeks and weeks before a new post is needed.
I'm very happy with my GPR, and have bought a few go-fast goodies this summer to satisfy my college kid need for speed... and it's quite an improvement of the XP! I feel much better riding 2-up with my girlfriend, it's plenty fast in stock form, it handles well, it takes lake chop like a champ, and it looks a lot more aggressive than a bright yellow XP.
1200Rs are fairly cheap nowadays, and 1300Rs are starting to come down on price.

I came from the exact same ski. 1997 XP was great, just not enough speed. RXP was too big for my taste and rode like a tricycle. I bought a gp1300r. Currently it has a 1390 bb motor in it and I haven't looked back.
