    2009's fastest

    Hey guys;
    now i know when we are talking about the fastest it essentially comes down to power and weight! since the top end are all 255's which ski in the 09 lineup do you think will be fastest? i personally love the RXT iS but with all that new technology will it be slower then a RXP-X?

    I am sure the rxt-x will win that race, it has the same engine but weights 184 pounds less this is a big difference.

    The RXT-iS is also limited to 65 mph with GPS. A new grate isn't gonna fix that.

    I think it's only limited to 65 mph in the US. Outside the US & Canada it should be faster... Ron

    Yep... lots slower. It's governor limited at 65 mph. Riva will have a module that will over ride the governor though but it will still be slower than the RXP-X

    I think the new hull design is much more efficient and will yeild higher top speeds than people expect. Jerry didn't you say you GPS'ed the iS at 71 with module the Seadoo boys brought along?

    That wasn't me. That was the editor of PWC Illustrated that said that. I totally forgot about that. I will ask Kevin about it and report back.

    I think its a tossup between the RXP-X and FZS for top speed king of 2009. This is 100% stock btw.

    I am with you aha.....but I think that once more FZR's/FZS's hit the water we will begin to learn that the FZR's/FZS's may be faster than the RXP-X out of the box.

    My understanding is that an ungoverned RXTis runs in the low seventies. The hull is supposed to work very well.
