BRP takes luxury riding to the next level with the introduction of the Sea-Doo GTX Limited 300. The combination of increased power and efficiency of the new 300-hp Rotax 1630 ACE engine with the advanced ergonomics of the Ergolock seat deliver a confidence inspiring ride allowing you to push your limits even further. This year all GTX models receive the new Ergolock seat with stepped design and the second generation of the intuitive Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR) system for an added level of control adding more value to the most full-featured luxury models in the watercraft industry.

ROTAX 1630 ACE Marine engine - Static4

ROTAX 1630 ACE Marine Engine

The new Rotax 1630 ACE engine is the most powerful engine ever produced by Rotax with a 15% power increase creating 300 hp, providing better acceleration and more mid-range power1. With increased intake air boost, improved cooling system and new ignition timing for the larger fuel injectors, the new Sea-Doo GTX Limited 300 elevates performance in the luxury segment.

In addition to the development of the new Rotax 1630 ACE engine, BRP applies the latest ergonomic science to perfect the rider position with the new Ergolock seat with stepped design on all GTX models in 2016. The Ergolock seat provides all riders a full body connection with the watercraft and a more natural position for more comfortable touring and confident cornering. The Ergolock seat design is sculpted to the riders’ bodies with a narrower section between the knees slightly widening towards the rear. The stepped-seating implements rising seating levels for better passenger vision with added lumbar cushioning providing added support for up to three riders that hold them in place better in all conditions.

The third major improvement for 2016 is all Sea-Doo GTX models will be equipped with the new second-generation iBR that improves on the intuitive iBR braking system with a more responsive activation and faster braking. The Sea-Doo iBR system introduced in 2009 is the first and only braking system recognized by the United States Coast Guard for contributing to recreational boating safety and stops the Sea-Doo watercraft close to 48.75 m (160-feet)2 sooner than the same watercraft not using a braking system. The new iBR system adds to the rider centric design approach providing unmatched control at speed and during tight quarter manoeuvring.

All GTX Models feature the latest in programmable power delivery through the exclusive Sea-Doo Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) including Touring, Sport, and ECO modes, Cruise Control and Slow mode. The GTX segment rides on the exclusive S3 hull (Stepped, Stable, Strong) that provides better wave penetration for a more stable ride and also offers the industry’s only suspension options on select models for the most comfortable ride available.

SEA-DOO WAKE MODELS TAKE TOW SPORTS TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH PERFECT BLEND OF COMFORT, FUN AND FUNCTIONALITY

BRP continues to offer the right watercraft for every type of watersports enthusiasts with two tow sports specific models in the 2016 Sea-Doo WAKE 155 and Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 215.

Both 2016 Sea-Doo WAKE models receive the new, second-generation Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR) providing a more responsive activation and faster braking. The WAKE PRO 215 model is redesigned with the adapted Ergolock seat for greater rider and passenger comfort.

Sea-Doo watercraft have been part of the wake board and wake skate scenes since their respective inceptions as the tow vehicle of choice for elite watersport athletes as well as providing the perfect instructional tow vehicle for amateurs and enthusiasts. The Sea‑Doo tow sport watercraft provide the best wake towing capabilities and are equipped with exclusive features developed specifically for tow sports such as Ski Mode, a removable wakeboard rack and a retractable ski pylon with spotter handles and rope strap. The exclusive Sea-Doo iBR system has also become a valuable tool for tow sports enthusiasts as the intuitive system provides added control for quick turn-around to pick up downed skiers. The second-generation iBR provides a more responsive activation through an improved gearbox motor and larger, reengineered brake gate. The new iBR reduces the stopping distance by close to 48.75 m (160-feet)1.

DCIM100GOPRO

BRP extends its support and long-standing relationship working with the NIKE wakeskate team riders to promote alternative watersports with Sea-Doo watercraft and to continually improve the WAKE models with engineering input. The tow-sport specific Sea-Doo WAKE 155 and WAKE PRO 215 models maintain their position as the watercraft of choice for elite NIKE wake skate team riders Ben Horan, Andrew Pastura, Nick Taylor, and Silas Thurman. In 2016, the Sea-Doo WAKE models continue to make a personal statement with new coloration and the WAKE PRO 215 rider environment being redesigned with the Ergolock seating and increased storage capacity.

Both 2016 Sea-Doo WAKE models include the exclusive Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) system and speed-based Ski Mode to fit wake boarders’ and wake skaters’ needs. This exclusive feature is engineered to make every driver an expert driver with the ability to program the acceleration curve and target speed for a consistent, perfect pull every time. Learning to ride behind an iControl technologies-equipped Sea-Doo watercraft is easier, less intimidating, and more economical than behind a traditional powerboat.

James Bushell Caps Off 2015 Racing Season with King’s Cup Victory

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Screen Shot 2015-12-16 at 4.25.19 PMJames Bushell is special. A talent like this doesn’t come around often. Bushell has been the most dominant professional runabout watercraft racer in the world over the past five years and there are no signs of him slowing down. Bushell recently won his second consecutive King’s Cup Pro GP crown on his 158Performance RXP-X at the annual race held in Thailand.

James is from the UK, not necessarily known as a PWC hotbed, yet the riders from the region are passionate about the sport and have produced some of the world’s best talent including racers Lisa Barsby and Anya Colley as well as freestyle champion Lee Stone. Bushell began his run in this millenniums first decade winning a handful of World Championships but it was in 2011 when he took his riding to another level.

Bushell was targeted by Sea-Doo Competition management, with super tuner Les Cooke of the legendary Sea-Doo Centre, as the right fit to launch the new Sea-Doo RXT-X with T3 hull on to the race scene at the 2011 World Finals. It was an, “all-in” approach with Bushell as the focus rider on the new platform and he didn’t disappoint winning both the Pro Open and Pro GP class the first race out of the gate and has added nearly a dozen more major championships to his resume since.

Screen Shot 2015-12-16 at 4.24.30 PM The Thailand King’s Cup is the last major race of the year and Bushell was excited to repeat as champion. “My experience in Thailand was awesome this year couldn’t asked for better result,” said Bushell. “This year was a bit stressful as the container with my Sea-Doo units arrive the night before the race. My modified SPARK with turbo was awesome and a really fun machine to ride and my 2016 rxpx worked perfect and it a pleasure to ride.”

Look for Bushell to race the SPARK classes more in 2016 and to continue his winning streak on the RXP-X 300.

 

 

 

HOW TO – Matching Your PFD To Your Sea-Doo Life

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

You are about to buy a, “big purchase item”. You are about to buy the most advanced watercraft on the planet with design that is years ahead of most vessels on the water. You are about to buy a stunning Sea-Doo watercraft. Are you really going to wear a PFD (personal floatation device) that is anything less advanced and stylish? Don’t be, “that guy” or “that girl” wearing an old mildewed, straight out of the ’90s, no style PFD while riding a work or art. Be the guy or girl who is wearing the most advanced, cool gear to match the most advanced, cool watercraft.

Wearing the right gear may raise your fashion status but the truth is, good gear provides the proper protection. An old PFD may have lost some of its buoyancy while other poorly constructed PFDs may come apart when forcefully entering the water. The right gear should be both fashionable and functional and wearing a PFD is required by law for all Sea-Doo drivers and riders when on the water.

An additional requirement for Sea-Doo drivers is the attachment of the D.E.S.S. key or Sea-Doo lanyard to the driver’s PFD. This is a safety requirement in case the driver were to come off of the vessel, as this immediately stops the watercraft engine. All Sea-Doo PFDs come standard with an integrated D-Ring for your Sea-Doo key connection, again part of the smart design of matched gear.

There are many types of PFDs on the market. When making a decision on what PFD to choose you should take a few things into consideration. To help you select the one that best suits your needs, Sea-Doo offers a wide selection of PFDs for all riding styles and all personal preferences.

The first question is Nylon, Neoprene, or Ecoprene?

There are differences in all. It’s important to think about how you are going to ride, where you ride and what will the weather be like at that moment.

Nylon – A PFD that combines great value with high quality components that won’t compromise look, safety, comfort and functionality. Easy fitting so it can be shared by a wide range of people, and versatile so it can be used for a variety of water sports.Your PFD needs to dry fast so it can be worn multiple times during the course of the day, making it perfect for the whole family.

  • Dries faster than neoprene
  • Lightweight
  • Low water absorption
  • Usually lower priced
  • Perfect for sharing

Neoprene – A personal, “athletic” PFD just for you, that matches your active riding style, can handle rugged daily — and all-day — use and adds warmth when needed. Snug fitting to intuitively shadow your body’s movements, and roomy where it counts not to hinder your mobility, your PFD will allow you to express yourself on the water.

  • Fitted

DR. DOO – WINTERIZING TIPS: FUEL SYSTEM PROTECTION

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dr. Doo is ready to help prepare your Sea-Doo for its winter downtime by providing technical information to help ensure the good health of your Sea-Doo watercraft.  This monthly blog will include tips and insight on seasonal maintenance, systems care, and the products to help maximize your Sea-Doo Life.

As the days have become shorter the Sea-Doo watercraft riding season comes closer to an end. Now is the time to prepare your Sea-Doo watercraft for winter months. Non-use of your watercraft can be more damaging than excessive use if the proper preventive maintenance isn’t performed properly and in a timely manner.

For those who live north of the Sunbelt, the long winter months can be torturous on various systems and components. BRP provides a host of XPS products specifically designed to compliment the winterization performed by an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.

A trained and certified BRP technician knows the procedures to properly prepare your watercraft for months of non-use and the harsh conditions of a cold winter.

You too can help the health of you watercraft by following these simple tips.

Prevent Fuel-Related Problems with the Right Fuel Treatment Products

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 9.46.14 AMTo minimize condensation build up in the fuel system, you should store your watercraft with a full tank. When you fill your tank for the last time, Use BRP’s XPS Fuel Stabilizer or XPS Carbon Free Fuel Treatment to properly store and treat today’s fuel.

Depending on your weekend adventure schedules, your watercraft may be used infrequently and fuel can be aged 30 days or longer before it’s utilized in an engine. Fuel-related problems increase as the fuel ages. Therefore, fuel should be treated to stabilize and combat the risks of fuel system corrosion, fuel oxidation, the accumulation of fuel system deposits and phase separation. Keep fuel fresh and help prevent these fuel-related problems using XPS Carbon Free Fuel Treatments. This goes beyond Sea-Doo watercraft but is applicable to any machine that uses a combustion engine.   

Fuel System Corrosion

Ethanol is an alcohol, and alcohols have corrosive properties. Both XPS Fuel Stabilizer and XPS Carbon Free have effective corrosion inhibitors that coat fuel system components to provide protection against the corrosive effects of ethanol-blended fuels. Blended fuels such as E10 degrade quickly and attract moisture that can lead to internal engine corrosion. Unlike your car, these problems are more severe for engines that sit idle and don’t have fresh fuel moving through the lines and injectors daily.

Fuel Oxidation

Both XPS Fuel Stabilizer and XPS Carbon Free have antioxidants that stabilize fuel and inhibit fuel oxidation. All petroleum products – gasoline, gasoline ethanol blends and all mineral and synthetic oils – contain hydrocarbons. Oxidation occurs when hydrocarbons react with oxygen and break chemical bonds.

This breakdown can occur in as soon as 15 days. Carbureted engines and vehicles with vented fuel systems are prone to rapid oxidation, and water contamination risk is increased due to humidity and condensation from temperature fluctuations – especially for watercraft that are near open water. For these reasons, fuel stored in a container or in an engine’s fuel tank should be treated quickly after purchase.

Fuel System Deposits

Fuel system gum and varnish deposits are the products of oxidation. These new, clustered compounds in oxidized clog fuel system components and can lead to difficult starting, non-starting, power loss or engine failure. XPS Carbon Free Fuel Treatment is a complete treatment and an addition to fighting the start of oxidation, it has functional cleaning/detergency properties to both prevent and help clean and remove system deposits that ruin engine performance. The XPS Carbon Free Fuel Treatment will help clean carbon deposits on the piston and in the combustion chamber, in turn helping maintain engine performance.

Phase Separation

Ethanol is hygroscopic, which means it has properties that attract. Approximately 0.5% water content will mix with E10 and burn harmlessly in an engine with few, if any, noticeable effects by the user. When this percentage is exceeded, most often from other methods of water contamination, the fuel blend can no longer suspend the water and it forms a separate, visible layer below the gasoline. Ethanol itself will not “grab” enough water vapor from the air to create phase separation – additional water comes from other contamination, commonly in the form of condensation from high humidity and rapid, broad temperature changes.

Unfortunately, there is no safe cure for phase separation and any product claiming otherwise makes a false claim. Once a fuel blend has separated, the fuel must be removed from the fuel system and discarded properly. The only safeguard for phase separation is to try and stop water contamination before it starts with careful fuel management.

  • Use XPS Fuel Stabilizer and XPS Carbon Free Fuel Treatment to protect against corrosion, stabilize fuel to fight oxidation and prevent fuel system deposits. It also cleans the fuel system and combustion chamber.
  •  Keep tanks full to reduce available interior surface area for condensation.
  • Try to avoid using non treated fuel in your Sea-Doo watercraft that was purchased more than 30 days prior.
  • Purchase fuel from busy fuel stations to ensure you fill up with the freshest fuel.
  • Avoid storing your watercraft and fuel containers in high humidity areas when possible.
  • Finally, avoid using a product that contains alcohol. Alcohol is often added to some manufacturer’s products as a means of suspending additional water in solution to prevent phase separation. Additional alcohol, when added to the an E10 fuel, is increasing the alcohol content to levels greater than the 10% rating that manufacturers warn users not to exceed.

 Taking your Sea-Doo Rotax engine to its most basic form explains why fuel treatment is so important. For a combustion engine to operate properly it needs three things: air, fuel, and spark. BRP XPS fuel treatment products can ensure 1/3 of that equation is trouble free. For more information on these and other maintenance products click on XPS.

AquaX Champion, Eric Lagopouls

Eric Lagopoulos claimed his second consecutive AQUAX series championship on a Sea-Doo GTR 215.

The championship was not determined until the final moto of the final race of the six event series, a year where the GTR 215 was the most popular model of the 250 class, Lagopoulos piloted the #361 consistently to podium spots an ultimately his second AquaX title.

After dozens of titles from around the world, Eric Lagopoulos has little to prove other than he can still win and win riding a Sea-Doo taken from the showroom floor against competitive factory supported teams. Lagopoulos has been in the sport of watercraft racing for over 20 years yet carries the youthful enthusiasm and drive to compete at the highest level of professional watercraft racing winning on what is fast becoming the sport’s biggest stage. We caught up with him to get some insight on his 2015 run.

Eric Lagopoulos aboard the #361 Sea-Doo GTR 215

OnBoard: Can you describe your 2015 AquaX season in one sentence?

Lagopoulos: “It was an incredibly exciting season filled with ups and downs but when it  came down to who was destined to be on top the season ended in pure satisfaction with the X-TEAM’s second championship in two-years!”

OnBoard: Why was the GTR 215 your craft of choose for the 250 class?

Lagopoulos: “The Sea-Doo GTR 215 is nimble in the surf and great in the flat and handles both with precision while being forgiving at the same time. It’s fast too and the reliability obviously helped us finish every race up front which is what you need to win championships over a grueling Aquacross season.”

OnBoard: Does the GTR 215 have an advantage over competitor models in regard to AquaX?

Lagopoulos: “I’ve had so much success on the GTR 215 in regards to Aquacross because of the different conditions each round. I mean is good in every condition. The GTR 215 is good in the flat water, good in chop, and good in the big surf races. It’s a watercraft that you can ride hard no matter where its ridden.” 

bugOnBoard: What was the most memorable moment of the year, other than the last moto of the season?

Lagopoulos: “I had a really cool moment Sunday before the races as a ladybug landed on my arm and I knew it would be my weekend!”

Onboard: That isn’t exactly what we were looking for… so lets go straight to the dramatic moment Sunday. Can you tell us what was going on in your head in the last moto when you knew you had to beat one person to win?

Lagopoulos: “I really love the mental side of the sport, so knowing I had to beat one rider for the overall championship was really exciting! I pushed the entire race from the drop of the green flag to the beautiful checkered flag and my second Aquacross championship in a row! It was a tight race figuratively and literally. The GTR 215 simply proved it’s the better overall watercraft.” 

Onboard: What’s next?

Lagopoulos: “I’m considering some really cool new opportunities in racing that I will be announcing in the near future so be sure to follow me on Facebook and on Twitter @Lagopolous and Instagram @lagopoulos1!”

SEA-DOO PUSHES PERFORMANCE WATERCRAFT TO THE NEXT LEVEL

BRP takes performance riding to the next level once again with the introduction of the new 300-hp Rotax 1630 ACE engine in the 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 and RXP-X 300 and the integration of the race-proven Ergolock seat on all RXT models.

The new Rotax 1630 ACE engine is bigger, more efficient and delivers more power with a boosted 300 hp, becoming the most powerful engine ever produced by Rotax. The Rotax 1630 ACE has a longer stroke compared to the Rotax 1503 and features a new supercharger with a faster spinning 32-blade wheel producing 30% more intake boost1. Adding to the power producing efficiency is a reengineered cooling system that is improved by 33% in part from an additional heat exchanger and more efficient engine oil cooler. New ignition curves have been developed to efficiently match the increased air boost with the output of the larger fuel injectors leading to a 15% increase in horsepower and the industry’s best power-to-weight ratio in the 2016 RXP-X 300 model.

This new engine also features a new plasma coating technology for aluminum-block engines developed by a Rotax team in Gunskirchen, Austria. The plasma coating technology is a thermal spraying process that deposits a protective coating on engine cylinder liners to create a metallic layer that provides a hard and durable surface to withstand piston friction forces. It improves surface durability, while keeping the engine lighter and more compact with better heat transfer and superior performance, and reduced use of chemicals.

The race-proven Ergolock seat is now available on all RXT models for 2016 and allows riders to hold onto the watercraft better by using their stronger leg muscles to squeeze the narrower seat, thus improving control and reducing upper body fatigue. The 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 receives the complete Ergolock system that includes the narrow Ergolock seat, the Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar and the angled footwell wedges for more rider comfort and control.

All 2016 Sea-Doo performance models will be equipped with the second-generation iBR that improves on the industry’s first, intuitive braking system with a more responsive activation. The new iBR reduces the stopping distance by close to 48.75 m (160-feet)2 sooner than deceleration without braking. The Sea-Doo iBR system is the first and only braking system recognized by the USCG since 2009 for contributing to recreational boating safety and is now even better with a stronger gear drive motor and larger, reengineered brake gate. The iBR system adds to the rider centric design approach providing maximum control in all conditions. The 2016 Sea-Doo performance models also include race-inspired features such as high-performance Variable Trim System (VTS), increased storage capacity on RXT models, new handlebar grips with palm rest and race-inspired coloration and graphics.

2016 SEA-DOO PERFORMANCE MODELS

2016 SEA-DOO RXT-X 300

The combination of the increased power and efficiency of the new ROTAX 1630 ACE engine with the advanced ergonomics of the Ergolock seat deliver a confidence inspiring ride allowing you to push your limits even further on the 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300. The 300-hp Rotax 1630 ACE engine delivers more torque providing more mid-range power to help maintain momentum when riding through heavy chop where the jet pump is continually reengaging the water. The new power package provides greater throttle response in all conditions and is the most powerful engine ever offered in a Sea-Doo watercraft.

The RXT-X 300 model also benefits from the learning’s of the recent Sea-Doo closed course racing success as the race-proven Sea-Doo Ergolock system of the RXP-X has been adapted to this model. The system allows the rider to connect with the watercraft better and use his entire body to hold on rather than only the upper-body, thus improving confidence and reducing upper body fatigue. The narrower, body-molded seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar and angled footwell wedges, have proven to benefit in aggressive cornering and are equally beneficial in connecting the watercraft in choppy, open-water, straight-line riding. The added ability for the rider to feel better connected to the RXT-X 300 delivers better control and less fatigue allowing the rider to utilize the available power more efficiently.

The addition of the Ergolock seat also aided in a redesign that now offers added wet storage under Sea-Doo’s exclusive removable watertight storage bin for over three times more storage capacity than the previous generation with 162 liters (42.8 US gallons) of total storage and a larger glove box. The technical flowing edges of the RXT-X model is complimented by the functionality of the stable and predictable S3 hull with adjustable rear sponsons. The RXT-X 300 watercraft is equipped with race specific features including, digital infocenter with integrated lap timer and boost indicator and high-performance Variable Trim System (VTS). It also features the second-generation iBR adding to the level of rider control with the most intuitive operation and Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) systems with Touring, Sport and ECO modes.

The Sea-Doo RXP-X watercraft is the most decorated performance model in the last five years and is now powered by the new 300-horsepower Rotax 1630 ACE engine offering the industry’s best power-to-weight ratio performance. This new, stronger, bigger and more efficient engine takes the RXP-X 300 model to the next level as the industry’s undisputed king of performance fun. The Rotax 1630 ACE power package provides greater mid-range power for better cornering speed and produces over 1G during acceleration from a stop.

The T3 hull design allows the RXP-X 300 model to aggressively lean into corners and penetrate chop better than any of its two-seater counterparts. T3 stands for “tight-turning t-hull” and uses an advanced, dual running surface hull design with a unique combination of soft and hard chines, adjustable rear sponsons and performance trim tabs. The T3 hull combined with the Ergolock system allows the rider to lean further into corners, using more of the available power, with greater confidence and less effort to turn tighter and faster.

The Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 also receives the new handlebar grips with palm rest and intuitive second-generation iBR enhancing the level of rider control to complete the most intuitively controlled two-seater in the high-performance segment. The Sea-Doo RXP-X model has set the standard for precise handling and in 2016 is available in Lava Red and the modern Monolith Black Satin coloration or race inspired White and Dayglow Yellow.

2016 SEA-DOO RXT-X aS 260

Much of the buzz entering this year’s IJSBA World Finals in Lake Havasu City, AZ, was the launch of the 2016 Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 and RXT-X 300 models, and how they are poised to be the next dominant models in watercraft racing. After the weeklong event, the buzz became a roar to accompany the roar of the crowd after Hungarian, Kasza György, claimed his first Pro Open World Championship aboard a Sea-Doo RXP-X.

“The entire Sea-Doo team is extremely proud to continue our racing on the RXP-X by taking home the premier Pro Open world title for the fifth straight year,” said Julie Tourville, Global Marketing Director, Sea-Doo watercraft. “We congratulate Kasza György and his team on their win, and we’re excited about the future as the new 300-HP Sea-Doo models make their way to starting lines in 2016.”

The 2016 Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 and RXT-X 300 come equipped with a new ROTAX 1630 ACE engine that is bigger, stronger and more efficient than before. That, together with the new Ergolock system, allows riders to enjoy more performance, confidence and greater control to push limits even further.

A new era in lower horsepower classes has begun as well, as Thailand’s Nopphadon Sapmunsaerr claimed the first Pro-Am Runabout 1000 Superstock title on a modified Sea-Doo SPARK. This is the first world championship for the SPARK, which was introduced in 2015, in a class that has been dominated by late model Sea-Doo SPX models for the past 10+ years.

SEADOO-BOUNTY_bushell-on-rightMulti-time world champion James Bushell won the $1,000 #SeaDooNEXTLEVEL Bounty Invitational in a head-to-head, three-lap race aboard identical 2016 RXT-X 300 models against New Zealand’s Carl Lampe. Bushell, who is from the UK, also finished second in both Pro Open and Pro GP classes on his Sea-Doo RXP-X.
