2017 Sea-Doo GTR 230
Accessible power and performance.by Sulthoni, on
This watercraft is one of the easiest ways to get into the musclecraft scene. It comes with a new and powerful supercharged 230-hp Rotax engine and offers the best value of any performance watercraft.
2017 Sea-Doo GTR 230
This new engine with maintenance-free supercharger and external intercooler is optimized for regular fuel.
1,494 cc four-stroke, Rotax with three cylinders in-line and four valves per cylinder
Equipped with Advanced Combustion Efficiency (ACE) technology, this new engine with maintenance-free supercharger and external intercooler is optimized for regular fuel, faster and more powerful than its predecessor, but just as fuel efficient.
iTC™ (Intelligent Throttle Control) system
Operating electronically, this advanced throttle system starts you in neutral for easier dockside starts. It also features activity-specific Touring, Sport and ECO modes that can all be set to accommodate your riding style. The result is a more responsive, more intuitive ride.
iControl® Learning Key®
The programmable Learning Key allows you to limit the performance of the PWC based on rider skill-level.
Combines a series of resonators and vibration-absorbing components to make Sea-Doo watercraft some of the quietest on the water.
Closed-Loop Cooling System
Uses coolant to keep the engine running at the ideal temperature, much like a car’s radiator. Also keeps out corrosive saltwater and debris.
Touring mode offering a more progressive acceleration curve, while Sport provides all acceleration performance for a more aggressive throttle response.
The “Brain” that integrates and controls all systems to create the best possible ride.
Touring mode / Sport mode
Offers a choice between two throttle responses for different riding styles. Touring mode is the default setting offering a more progressive acceleration curve for a more confident ride – ideal for cruising and 2-up riding. Sport mode can be easily activated using the Sport button. It provides all acceleration performance for a more aggressive throttle response.
This iTC function automatically determines the most economical power delivery and sets the optimal RPM for greatest fuel economy.
Ergonomically designed for comfort and great looks providing ultra-plush seating for three – permits rear-facing spotter for watersports.
High-performance VTS (Variable Trim System)
The VTS adjusts the angle of the nozzle to change the behavior of the watercraft and improve parallelism to the water. The high-performance VTS provides pre-set positions for quick settings.
RF D.E.S.S.™ Key
With radio frequency technology and a ball-and-socket design, the Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.) key provides riders with easy and quick starts every time.
Off-Throttle Assisted Steering (O.T.A.S.®)
Provides the operator with additional steering effect in off-throttle situations for greater maneuverability.
Interactive Multifunction Digital Information Center
VTS preset, Fuel consumption instant & average, Fuel level, Tachometer, Speedometer, Hour meter, Compass, Clock, Touring mode, Sport mode, ECO mode, F-N-R indicator and more.
With the squeeze of a lever. And with its electronic reverse, it gives you a level of maneuverability that makes docking easier.
iBR (Intelligent Brake & Reverse) system
First and only true brake on a watercraft recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard for improving boating safety since 2009. Now in its 2nd generation, the intuitive and improved iBR allows you to stop close to 160 feet sooner1 for greater peace of mind. All with the squeeze of a lever. And with its electronic reverse, it gives you a level of maneuverability that makes docking easier.
