Kawasaki Ultra 250
was wondering if anyone with 07 or 08 ultra 250 has ran against the 08 rxt-x with the 255 hp motor. Friend bought one and swears it will dust the 250x

It all depends on a lot of things. A stock ultra will do 64-67. I stock rxt-x will do around 66-68. Now, take into consideration the price. You can get a leftover 2007 ultra for around 10-11 k. An Rxt-x is 13,299 I think. You could sink a couple hundred to 1k into the ultra and you will be around 70. Aftermarket parts will definitely make the Rxt-x faster cause more parts are made for the seadoos, but they also cost money. Also take into consideration the riding conditions. If you ride in mild to heavy chop, the ultra has a hull designed for this. If you don't care about money and only care about speed, then the Rxt-x will give you more speed with aftermarket parts. I do care about money, so I got the ultra. I like to make it faster, so I went and a bunch of things done to my ski. Some were worthwhile, while others did absolutely nothing. I personally beat an Rxt-x while I had 2 riders and he only had one. It actually wasn't even close. Everybody will have different opinions so take this with a grain of salt. Stock vs Stock, the Rxt-x will win. A modded ultra that even with a bunch mods costs less than the Rxt-x will beat the stock rxt-x.

seadoos are put together with snot. i personally would never buy or own one, thats why i have a kawi, thats my opinion. ultras and kawis in general are better boats more refined.
in a drag race on flat/calm water the SD will beat the kawi.
In chop, the ultra will smoke an rxp whatever...

Only when the water calm will an RXT-x beat me.
but i doo love to see the Sea doo ride fall off at high speeds
