    Speedster 510HP

    How many of you would buy one ?
    Or maybe a Speedster 150 255HP ?

    One 255hp for me, please...but it wouldn't stay 255hp for long. Depends on the price. My opinion is the S200 is about good enough with 215hp x 2, but the S150 needs 255hp+ bad! The reason is that the S200 is already a fast boat that can hold a lot of people, but the S150 is really just a glorified jetski. There's really not much more use you can get out of it beyond a 3 person jetski, but to have the same horsepower as a jetski with 500 extra pounds hurts. Hell, it's probably only a yard longer than the '09 RXT-S; it needs AT LEAST as much horsepower. Well, at least I've just about got mine like it should have come from the factory.

    So it looks like for '09, the S200 stays 430hp, but the S150 has a 255hp option, which is exactly what they should have done. The 230 models have a 510hp option, so expect for 2010, that will finally trickle down to the S200. The depth finder is now standand, and there seems to be a new sound suppression system (a new big azzz resonator?). I eagerly anticipate the pricing for the '09 S150 255hp. With the depth finder now standard, and the RXT-S over $15K, I think I'll be able to sleep well with the money I've spent on mine. I'll venture a guess that it will be $21K - 21.5K. I also eagerly await the opportunity to pass one on the water!

    I rode in the 510 HP boat and it was incredible. I'm with VX1 though, if i had this boat it wouldn't stay 510 for long

    so is the speed 200 510hp next year? or still 430hp?

    My boat is all stock and at 430hp it goes great, I dont know how much faster you would want it.

    '09 S200 is still max 430hp, from what I read. Since the 255s are available in the 230 models (x2) and S150 for '09 though, I'm taking an educated guess that's where they'll up the ante next year.

    i've driven a few 230 challengers and wake editions with 430 HP... they were kind of painfully underpowered for top end... for a 23' boat, they launched hard out of the hole, impressive in that regard... but with 430 ponies it ran out of steam very very quickly.

    510 HP is what that boat NEEDS.... i'm interested to see tho how a heavy ass pig of a boat accelerates tho with a carbon seal and 510 HP thru two jet pumps... that's alot of instant raw power that spools up stupid fast in a big boat
