Burbayea claims his first Pro Open championship on his Sea-Doo RXP-X

The Sea-Doo X-TEAM extends the legacy of Sea-Doo watercraft dominance to seven consecutive years in the two premier IJSBA Pro World Championship classes. Kuwait’s Mohammed Burbayea captured his first Pro Open championship aboard his Sea-Doo RXP-X model and Hungary’s György Kasza added to his championships finishing atop the Pro GP class.

 

 

György Kasza adds to his World Championships

Sea-Doo riders added to the podium count with Kasza finishing as the runner up in Pro Open. In Pro GP it was UK’s prolific James Bushell finishing second and Marcus Jorgenson of Denmark completing the X-TEAM podium sweep finishing in third. Kylie Elmers also added another Pro Women’s championship to her resume aboard her Sea-Doo Centre backed RXP-X 300. The event, attended by the top riders in the world, proved the dynasty of performance dominance lives with the Sea-Doo T3 hull equipped watercraft models.

Test Rides on the new, 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 and GTX Limited.

Ready to carry the X-TEAM winning legacy to endurance racing is the 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 model with all-new ST3 hull. The new Sea-Doo RXT, GTX, and WAKE PRO watercraft models made their public debut at IJSBA World Finals in Lake Havasu City, AZ where guests were able to test ride the new platform featuring the ST3 hull. Numerous racers and performance enthusiasts said this new platform would be the one to beat in 2018 in part because of its incredible rough water stability and lowered rider center of gravity.

 

Select X-TEAM racers showcased the performance and specifically the stability and precise handling of the new RXT-X 300 in the Sea-Doo Bounty Invitational event. The Sea-Doo Bounty is a racer contingency program that pays Sea-Doo watercraft racers extra money for top finishes and includes a special World Finals event. Florida’s Erminio Iantosca and Australia’s Gee Greenland competed in the Sea-Doo Bounty ‘Pop Man’ Invitational final where both riders rode the new 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 model around the World Finals track while having to pop several buoys in attempt to post the fastest one-lap time. Greenland showcased the RXT-X 300 stable and precise handling abilities the best by narrowly edging Iantosca by a mere three tenths of a second to claim the $1000 bonus.

NEW Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230

Stability, Power and Music to Tow like a Pro

WAKE PRO 230_DSC07630_MY18

2018 Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230

The Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230 is the ultimate tow sports machine, destined to be the watercraft of choice for those who demand peak tow performance on the water. It is based on an entirely new platform introduced by Sea-Doo on select 2018 models, which provides a revolutionary on-board experience and industry-leading stability and control.

The Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230 is powered by a supercharged 230 horsepower Rotax® 1500 HO ACE engine. It can carry up to three riders and reach a top speed of 65mph (105 KM/H). Available colors include Teal blue and lava red.

^Performance numbers based on BRP internal testing in optimal conditions.

Superior Stability and Control

The new platform’s industry-leading stability and control starts with a lower center of gravity, which provides more confidence in rough water, at high speeds, and with three passengers. It is also wider for worry-free re-boarding and movement around the watercraft, and there’s up to a 90-pound weight reduction from previous model years. Combine that with a new, deep-V ST³ hull that increases performance in rough water and provides better control while cornering, and riders have the best of all worlds in any condition.

Powerful Audio System (optional)

A powerful, 100-watt stereo is a cornerstone of the on-board experience. It is the world’s first Bluetooth, fully-integrated waterproof watercraft audio system. It features 100 watts of total power, is built to withstand harsh watercraft environments, has Bluetooth connectivity, and its external playback controls ensure the perfect song is always on deck.

Ingenious Storage

Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230 has a spacious 27-gallon (102.5 L) direct-access front cargo compartment designed for easy access to all gear from a seated position – simply raise the handlebar and reach in. There is also a waterproof, shockproof compartment with an optional USB charger accessory that allows phones to stay charged and ready to go. A new LinQ quick-attach rear cargo system is also standard, allowing for simple, easy-snap accessory connection in seconds without tools.

Available LinQ accessories:

  • NEW LinQ Ski Pylon: High-rise pylon with built-in grab handles for the spotter, which can be installed or removed in 30 seconds.
  • Fuel Caddy: Holds up to 4 gallons (15L) of fuel in an easy-to-pour canister.
  • Cargo Bag: Semi-rigid, 5.5-gallon (21L) storage that can stack on top of the fuel caddy.
  • Cooler: Rigid, durable and weather-resistant cooler that keeps 4.2 gallons (16L) of content fresh and cold. It also acts as a table between reconfigured seats for on-water picnics.

 Reconfigurable Ergolock Seating

When it’s time to relax, a revolutionary reconfigurable rear seat transforms the ride into a living room on the water. When riding, the Ergolock seat provides unmatched control, handling and comfort by letting riders lock in and use their legs, making them feel at one with the machine, and riders can quickly change from a 3-seater configuration to a flat lounge area when stopped to enjoy the surroundings. Two riders can face each other for a picnic lunch, or when removed, the larger, flatter rear deck makes re-boarding and prep for tow sports easier and more stable.

The WAKE PRO 230 comes equipped with all standard features, and as well as:

  • Modular Ergolock Seat
  • Tilt Steering
  • High-performance Variable Trim System (VTS)
  • Exclusive Quick-Attach Rear Cargo System (LinQTM)

SEA-DOO DELIVERS HIGH-PERFORMANCE AND HIGH VALUE WITH THE NEW GTR-X 230 MODEL

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Orlando, Florida August 16, 2016 – BRP offers more performance watercraft options with two new 2017 Sea-Doo models  including the high value GTR 230 and new GTR-X 230 with Ergolock system. Both models will be powered by the new 230-hp Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine and join the RXT 260, RXT-X 300 and RXP-X 300 to further strengthen the strongest performance line-up in the watercraft industry.

The new Sea-Doo GTR-X 230 watercraft becomes the most affordable X-model (extra performance) and is powered by the new Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine that will push this new watercraft from idle to 60 mph (96,6 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, which is 2.4 seconds quicker than the closest competitive model1. The new GTR-X 230 model receives the complete Ergolock system that includes the Ergolock seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar, and angled footwell wedges. The Ergolock seat 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 for a more confidence inspiring ride to push riding limits even further.

gtrx

2017 Sea-Doo GTR-X 230

Powering the Sea-Doo GTR-X 230 and GTR 230 models is new Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine, designed with the Advanced Combustion Efficiency philosophy producing 15 more horsepower than its predecessor while maintaining minimal mass for strong power-to-weight performance. The advances in thermal dynamic cooling and overall refinement in the 1500 HO ACE engine elevates the nimble handling of the GTR platform to the next level of value-minded performance watercraft.

The new 230-hp Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine follows the 300-hp 1630 ACE engine innovation, including the 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 walls 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.

gtr2

2017 Sea-Doo GTR 230

The Rotax ACE, or Advanced Combustion Efficiency, engines implement advancements in combustion and cooling efficiency that produce substantially more power without adding mass. The ACE philosophy aids the new Rotax 1500 HO ACE in producing 15 more horsepower power than the previous version to provide strong power-to-weight performance and is optimized for regular fuel resulting in more money saved at the gas station. While the new engine produces 15 more horsepower than its predecessor, fuel consumption remains on par. Adding to the innovation, the new Rotax 1500 HO ACE follows in the wake of it’s big brother, the Rotax 1630 ACE engine, with a maintenance free* supercharger.

All 2017 Sea-Doo performance models are equipped with the second-generation Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR), the intuitive braking system that reduces the stopping distance by nearly 160 feet (48.75 m) sooner2 than deceleration without braking. The Sea-Doo iBR is the first and only braking system recognized by the USCG (U.S. Coast Guard) since 2009 for contributing to recreational boating safety and adds to the rider-centric design approach providing maximum control in all conditions. The 2017 Sea-Doo performance models also include race-inspired features such as high-performance Variable Trim System (VTS), handlegrips with palm rest and race-inspired coloration and graphics.

2017 SEA-DOO GTR-X 230

New for 2017 is the Sea-Doo GTR-X 230, a mix of high-performance and high-value all combined in one stunning, California Green Metallic & Black two-seater. As the lowest priced Sea-Doo X-model, the GTR-X 230 is powered by the new Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine and is joined by the race-proven Ergolock system that inspires more confidence in all conditions. The GTR-X 230 rides upon the playful yet precise GTI hull and when coupled with the new 230-hp powerplant it turns from mild-mannered to superhero status at the pull of the throttle lever, leaping from 0-60 mph (96,6 km/h) in 5.3 seconds.

gtr-x-230-gtr-230_bx7o6645_my17

2017 Sea-Doo GTR-X 230 (right) and GTR 230 (left)

The GTR-X 230 with Ergolock system allows the rider to connect with the watercraft to become one with it, allowing the rider to push the limits even further. The narrower, lower body-molded seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar, and angled footwell wedges, provide added leverage in aggressive cornering and are equally beneficial in connecting to the watercraft in choppy, open-water, straight-line riding. Adding to rider control and confidence is the second-generation iBR that reduces the stopping distance of the watercraft by nearly 160 feet (48.75 m) and the Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) with three power delivery modes including Touring, Sport, and ECO to best match the riding activity.

The T3 hull design offers one-of-a-kind handling allowing 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 includes the intuitive second-generation iBR providing the only braking system available on a high-performance two-seater for an enhanced level of rider control. The Sea-Doo RXP-X model has set the standard for precise handling and in 2017 is available in Lava Red and the modern Monolith Black Satin coloration or race-inspired White and Dayglow Yellow. No watercraft turns like the 2017 RXP-X 300 and no watercraft is as fun and rewarding as when pushing your riding limits further on the Sea-Doo RXP-X 300.

2017 SEA-DOO RXT-X 300

The combination of the Rotax 1630 ACE engine power and advanced ergonomics of the Ergolock system delivers a confidence-inspiring ride allowing you to push your limits even further on the 2017 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 with the water. The Rotax ACE power package provides greater throttle response in all conditions and is the most powerful engine ever offered in a Sea-Doo watercraft.

2017 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300

The 2017 RXT-X 300 integrates the race-proven Sea-Doo Ergolock system that 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.
