Race-inspired features with one clear advantage: no finish line. The 2008 Sea-Doo RXT-X deliver the quickest acceleration ever offered on a production personal watercraft, able to travel 200 ft from a standing start in under four seconds, comparable to the most exotic sports cars.
The 2008 RXT-X has a 255 horses Supercharged Intercooled Rotax® 4-TEC® engine, for maximum power. This is the most powerful engine ever in a Sea-Doo watercraft, and it retains Sea-Doo’s title for the industry’s best power-to-weight ratio.
Handling fit for a fighter jet. The RXT-X offers high-performance features that turn a close race into a battle for second, and every inch dripping with jaw-dropping style. From its high-tech Hyper Silver coloration to its distinctive graphics complementing each performance feature the RXT-X attracts attention. However, there is one issue: seating for 3, throttle for 1. So be sure to rotate, because everyone deserves a turn at the helm of the quickest 3-seater on the planet.
BRP flexes its muscle heritage with a new category of racer-inspired models for 2008 RXT-X 255 hp. No other manufacturer offers a production watercraft with a complete high-performance package of this level, which sets a new benchmark in power, acceleration, handling and fun. The high performance X models deliver the industry’s best handling hulls and rider ergonomics, for precise, nimble performance.
The X models feature a race-style handlebar and steering system, and a special, low profile, high-grip seat, that combine to provide riders with maximum leverage for fine-tuning their riding position.
When you’re cruising aboard the most dramatic performance statement of 2008, it’s only fair to enjoy every moment of it.
