2007 Sea-Doo RXP

Posted on by

The 215 hp supercharged, intercooled engine is back in all its arm-stretching glory for 2007. It’s still the most powerful engine in the industry, and has yet to get beat in the Musclecraft Shootout. And new for the 2007 Sea-Doo RXP is a 155 hp engine option. Either way, you’ll be digging into turns and beating your friends across the lake with no mercy. There’s simply no letting up when a PWC handles like this.

Engine

The 2007 Sea-Doo RXP is a 2-Passenger Style Personal Watercraft "PWC" equipped with an 1494cc, Liquid Cooled, In-line, SOHC, 4-Stroke Engine. It has a 4-blade Stainless Steel impeller and puts out 215HP.

The Sea-Doo RXP’s supercharged 4-stroke 3-cylinder Rotax SOHC with intercooler features a big-bore (100mm), short-stroke (63.4mm) design. Reduced piston travel means a longer engine life. The heads are a 4-valve design because the RXP mill is redlined at 8 grand. High-revving bike engines that spin at over 11,000 rpm benefit from 5-valve heads. Premium components, such as titanium valves, add to the durability equation, but that stuff doesn’t come cheap. Bombardier, the parent company for Sea-Doo, Rotax and other brands, needed volume to justify the engine investment. In addition to powering PWCs, the 4-stroke – dubbed 4 TEC – in various configurations is being bolted into everything from the company’s ATVs and snowmobiles to Sea-Doo sport boats.

Exterior

The 2007 Sea-Doo RXP’s hull is based on Sea-Doo’s GTi line. It is slightly modified with improved chine placement and front spray deflectors. The intake area is widened to process more water. The top deck is totally new, and the rider position, compared to the GTi, is moved forward for a more athletic riding style and quicker turning.

Handling aside, the RXP excels in the same arena as the old muscle cars: straight-line performance. It will take you from point A to point B quicker than any other PWC on the water.

Test drive

The Sea-Doo RXP starts very easy, but the idle is way too high from the factory. Inexperienced riders will be running into everything. The boat idles at over 1800 RPM. Reverse operation is not very smooth and the reverse handle is of made of poorly constructed/supported material.

The RXP takes off like a rocket, and runs up to peak speed in a real hurry - everything happens super fast. It turns and handles great, seating is great, and the color is amazing. On a calm day it can reach a top speed of 73 mph.

Like every “mechanical machine” build by men the Sea-Doo RXP has some good and some bad points.

Good points: it’s dependable, handles well at all speed, fast and can jump clear out of the water over small waves.
Bad points: sprays a little at low speed and can break down without a warning.

Conclusion

In its short life (the first model of the RXP was built in 2004) the Sea-Doo RXP won some awards – "Watercraft of the Year 2004" and "Watercraft of the Year" – that made this ski jet popular.
