I was lucky enough to ride behind/in an '03 B-53 VX2 a few weeks back. I have pics of the wake at home, I'll try and remember to get them up on here tonight.
IMO- The boat's fit and finish was second to none. Very roomy, comfortable, well laid out, and exceptional looking. The 2-speed tranny is functional. I don't drive the boat every day so I don't have any input on fuel consumption with the 2-speed. You do need to throttle back some when shifting so that when it engages it isn't too jerky and 'clunky'.
The wake was very nice, IMO. I would put it's shape not as vert as a Nauti 210 but not as rampy as the '03 X-Star/X-2.
The boat handled DU's and TU's like it was it's job. I felt no cavitation when making very tight turns, even when loaded with the 2100 lb ballast plus people.
Overall, I really liked the boat. I don't care for the flames, but I think they'll be offering some different color/graphic combos soon. You don't have to use the 2-speed all the time. We used just one speed and the boat was still able to get out of the hole respectably and perform well. All for the bargain RETAIL price of 67k
