Fully redesigned for model year 2021 to be the undisputed standard in high-performance personal watercraft, the Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 recently earned the title of 2021 Top Product from Boating Industry magazine.
What was it that caught the attention of these industry experts? Turns out, just about everything from new handlebars to a revamped T3-R hull design with never-before-seen features like the ingenious “shark gill” inner chines at mid-hull.
“The new T3-R hull features the only T-shape with soft chine design providing the only true motorcycle-like, lean-in handling in the PWC industry,” said Boating Industry editors. “The hull has been refined to provide ultimate jet pump hook up and full-speed confidence in tight and sweeping turns with new ‘shark gill’ inner chine design that acts as a relief valve for water cohesion while gripping the water in the tightest of turns,” they added.
The combination of hull design and the proven 300-HP Rotax 3-cylinder supercharged 1630 ACE engine enables mind-boggling acceleration going 0-50 in under three seconds. Along with pure quickness, the hull instantly responds to rider input on the water giving riders unmatched control in every high-octane riding scenario.
The platform above the water was also completely re-imagined for 2021 with race- and rider-inspired features to improve the relationship between rider, watercraft and water. The end result is the new Ergolock-R cockpit design which gives the rider a feeling of sitting in a watercraft rather than on it.
Everywhere a rider touches the watercraft – seat, handlebars, knee pockets, footwells – has been completely updated for that perfect feel on the water. An adjustable racing saddle allows riders to find the perfect fit and support from behind. This allows them to focus more on driving and less on just hanging on. Low rise handlebars with a more rounded grip offer riders greater leverage in tight turns. A tacky front seating area lets riders grip the watercraft tighter with their legs for added confidence.
“The 2021 Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 has taken racer and performance enthusiasts dream features and designs and incorporated them into the ultimate high-performance watercraft,” said the editorial staff. “The Ergolock-R design connects the rider to the machine better matching the performance of the hull and 300hp engine with rider input,” they added.
Add to all this the revolutionary onboard experience Sea-Doo is known for with options like the BRP Audio – premium sound system, standard LinQ accessory attachment points for adding additional storage and a 2-up passenger seat to replace the adjustable racing saddle and the adventure only gets better with endless adrenaline-filled fun.
