    Heads Up Showdown Pt.2: ’18 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 vs. ’19 Yamaha WaveRunner FX SVHO



    As you can imagine, it’s not really in our best interests to “bite the hands that feed” – meaning, the companies who support The Watercraft Journal keeping us in business. That’s why it’s a bit daring of us to offer such honest reviews on the various products that we test as well as conducting not one, but now two of these acceleration tests. As we noted back in June’s are always the first to jump to the defense if their particular brand happens to land in the “runner-up” position.

    Not surprising given that the GP 1800 and the Rxt were almost even. It is a little surprising how much quicker the Sea Doo is

    I wonder if Yamaha will come out with launch control for the GP1800 and the FX SVHO for next year? Or maybe a bump in the SVHO's horsepower to 315hp to take the Top spot from Seadoo.

    It’s stock vs stock in this test. Most of us here aren’t going to keep them stock. Once you throw mods at a svho that’s where they shine over the sea doo. I don’t see yamaha changing anything in that regard

    Unlikely. Yamaha is very happy with their product's racing record.

    A big deal is how good the launch control really is! I mean, an experienced rider like Jerry riding the rxtx 300 and he is still so much faster with the lc used.
    Know imagine a novice rider vs the lc. Great job SeaDoo
