BRP’s Sea-Doo division received a Good Design award. The Japan Institute of Design has held the awards since 1957. This year’s event had more than 4,700 entries, with 100 designs featured for its Good Design Best 100, which demonstrate excellence in originality, proposal power, aesthetics and level of completion that helps raise the standards in today’s design.

The Sea-Doo GTX Limited was chosen in the Personal Mobility category. The judges praised the design’s “new way of enjoying the water that is suitable for different lifestyles, such as modular seats that allow a variety of arrangements … with an original and stimulating design and texture.”

The award winners will be displayed at the Good Design Exhibition at Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi from Oct. 31 to Nov. 4. Eighty-six judges decided the winners.
