I don't like vendor sponsored testing. But any testing is good testing. I am not surprised by the results other than the buoy (closed course test). Six buoys is not a lot, and the conditions on that course where probably flat (which no closed course is). And the riders who tested are (I believe) mostly sea-doo owners which will make there abilities favor the RXP models.

it would appear that these tests are completely unbaised

Interesting time for 0-50 for a FZR as Jerry's Stalker times for STOCK were:
Average times out of 6 runs
0-30 1.90 seconds
0-40 2.61 seconds
0-50 3.59 seconds
0-60 5.26 seconds
I think his fastest of these runs was 3.46 which is a hell of a lot different than 4.30 that BRP ( FIT) reports on THEIR test

The fuel consumption #'s are a little out of wack too. My SHO used ~18gph @ WOT(67.0mph) when stock...their test showed the FZR using 20.4gph @ 65...3+mph less than WOT. I'd think the FZR would be better than the SHO for fuel consumption since the hull should make less drag and can achive the same speed with less rpm. I call on FIT.

I think when the videos come out and you see what Tim Judge ( for all of you who do not know this name, this man has built some of the fastest Yamahas and Kawasakis ever seen, has been the driving force behind more closed course national and world championships then all of us on this board combined ) has too say about the Sea-Doo vs. the new Yamaha FZR.
