    All The Right Moves: 2017 Sea-Doo GTR-X 230



    Sometimes the best answers are the simplest ones. We knew Sea-Doo was looking to fill specific “market gaps” in its lineup, but was pleasantly surprised when Sea-Doo revealed the new GTR-X 230 into its 2017 line-up. The integration of the Ergolock seat from the RXP-X to the GTR was easy enough; the two models share the same deck, and its only a matter of a hood, seat, fairings and bracketry to make the exchange possible. The GTR (then powered by a supercharged 215-horsepower 1503 Rotax) was already a popular mid-range performance craft, and while the race-inspired T3 hull of the RXP-X might’ve been a little too aggressive for many, the Ergolock cockpit was too good not to share.

    Great article!! I wonder how much better the fuel efficiency is to the 300's. I have a 300, and I mostly go on long rides, and hate to constantly fuel up. Id be willing to trade out of my 300 for one of these 230s.

    Kevin, great review ... you did a super job ... telling the SeaDoo GTX story. They should pay you a commission on the sale of everyone. LOL

    Well, first you're talking two very different hull designs, so you're going to have some significant riding differences (not to mention storage). The 230 is tuned for 87, but has a smaller tank. They're both supercharged, so don't expect N/A Yamaha numbers.
