BRP Sea-Doo PWC beat out its competition in acceleration, handling and fuel consumption, according to a recent study by the Florida Institute of Technology.

The study tested the newest PWC "musclecraft," including BRP Sea-Doo RXP-X, RXP 215, RXT-X, and RXT iS 255; the Yamaha FZR; and the Kawasaki Ultra 260X watercraft.

The Florida Institute of Technology coordinated the evaluations with a group of professional riders including IJSBA Hall of Fame racers Chris Fischetti, Karine Paturel and Tim Judge, as well as current professional racer Eric Lagopoulos. FunJet Magazine, a leading PWC magazine, also assisted in the study.
