    This is likely to be an attempt by BRP to get the Coast Gaurd to let up on the 65 mph gentlemen's agreement on PWC top speed limiting.

    That's not it as these ski's are GPS governed to 65 mph. PWC riders are getting more expensive which means their target audience is getting older. I would love to have one for rec riding. I know after a couple of days at the MudBug it is all I can do to stand up straight.

    I agree, BRP knows where there money comes from..

    The older folks I sometimes ride with dont like geting beat up - they want to ride longer and enjoy it....I'd like one of each personally..

    Great on BRP to be innovative instead of just repainting something. All this technology often falls down into other advancements.

    I personally feel it is a good move on their part. As others have said, the people that usually buy these will be in awe at the new feature. They know they will attract more rich people and it will give them a leading edge compared to other manufacturers.

    It is just something else to break down. It will probably cost other 2 or 3 grand. Nice idea till someones foot get caught in the travel area. What ever happen to KISS. Good idea, but will be a big headache later on for service. If it last long enough to keep part around. It will probably be other 3D story.
