The 2008 Sea-Doo RXT comes with incredibly aggressive yet stable handling to slice up the water in ways that’ll certainly inspire jealousy among onlookers.
The 2008 RXT is powered by 215 supercharged 1494cc four-stroke, intercooled, Rotax SOHC with four valves per cylinder engine to blur your surroundings or blast through choppy conditions.
A supercharger forces air into the cylinders like a turbocharger, but without the delay common on turbochargers, giving the Sea-Doo immediate throttle response.
Looking at the 2008 RXT, it’s easy to see the resemblance with a muscle car. This resemblance is not obtained through applied decals, but by molded plastic trim that in many cases are integral to the design of the boat.
The modern gauges look cool and are functional, but Sea-Doo included their multifunction digital display with a host of additional information. Other features only found in personal watercraft of recent vintage include Sea-Doo’s digitally encoded security key, and the company’s “learning key” which limits the engine RPM for less experienced riders. This makes the RXT very rough in choppy water in the break in period, but once you’re off the learning key, it’s a whole new world. It handles better, accelerates better, and all out performs better.
Why looking for another 3-seater when you can have the versatility 2008 Sea-Doo RXT.
