I remember back in the day when jetskis were simple. This is crazy:

I honestly see no fun in riding this thing. It seems more like a little boat than a jetski to me.

I still don't like jet skis.
check out the Quadski, it's way more 007.

Pretty cool.... if you have no talent to ride a real JetSki.... a standup. Thats about the only type I bother with.

The Quadski is innovative. But I'd love to take it for a spin where the Cat goes.

Kinda funny that they mention, "it's built to last a decade or more".

I'd like to think that if I'm spending $19k on a toy it's going to last a little longer than that. Guess they're trying to shed the imagine of early to mid 90's Sea Doos that need engine / pump rebuilds.

Does anyone have any idea how fast this thing goes?

I would imagine upwards of 70 mph, with incredible holeshot. Our 215 horse RXT does about 68, so I can only imagine what 255 will do...

I dont why people get sit down pwcs just to "go fast". It seems like it would get boring really quick

but i would love to have that new GTX to wakeskate. The speed control sounds amazing. Its hard for new guys to keep the speed consistent. i would like the help to sometimes.

Bill K - Funny that you sit down to board and stand up to jetski. Just an observation.

Did you see the "suspension"? Now all those homo chariots can chop up the water, and they wont feel how bumpy it is.

I see the appeal especially for the newly anointed to PWCs with that brake. The lack of steering and braking at no throttle with traditional fleas probably account for the majority of wrecks.

The market timing couldn't be worse for PWCs near $20K though. Also I tend to follow the KISS principle - too much stuff that could break on that thing IMO but time will tell how reliable they are.

Mitch, the majority of people buy them just for that. Not me though. I run ours pretty hard and run myself hard too. Ive been knocked out before jumping ferry waves. But you're right in a way most ppl use them as fast couches. I stand up 99% of the time.
