    SEA-DOO PERFORMANCE SEGMENT
    SEA-DOO PERFORMANCE WATERCRAFT OFFER THE GREATEST BALANCE OF ERGONOMIC DESIGN, PERFORMANCE ENHANCING FEATURES, RACE PROVEN POWER AND AVANT-GARDE STYLING


    Valcourt, Quebec, Sept. 12, 2014 – BRP has set the standard in performance watercraft since 1991 when the Sea-Doo XP was introduced as the first true performance watercraft model. In 2015, five Sea-Doo performance series models continue this nearly two and a half decade long tradition.

    Sea-Doo performance series watercraft have a long and distinguished history of offering ultimate performance and handling thanks to a perfect combination of ergonomics, performance enhancing features, proven Rotax engine technology and standout styling. Performance vehicles are intended to stimulate the senses. Sensations extend beyond touch and sound with sight carrying equal, if not greater importance. The BRP design team is world renown for innovation and setting new trends in the marine industry with the 2015 Sea-Doo performance models exemplifying this more than any others. In 2015, the Sea-Doo performance models combine the award-winning intricacies of the flowing-facet design philosophy with the most dramatic colorization change in the marine industry.  Color is instrumental in defining performance.

    The speed of light intertwines with the speed of color. When you see a speeding vehicle the first stimulus noticed is the approaching speed, second is the color and third is the sound as it passes. The 2015 Sea-Doo performance series combines speed with vibrant, hot color combinations creating a visually loud statement that will set new trends while remaining distinctly Sea-Doo. All 2015 Sea-Doo performance models feature the integration of the vibrant new Sunburst Yellow color ready to make a statement when launching off of the starting line, a statement as the first to cross the finish line and a statement that is distinctively Sea-Doo performance.
    Constantly innovating, BRP Sea-Doo is also introducing a new Radio Frequency (RF) key that makes for a faster engine start and maintains security with our exclusive Digitally Encoded Security System (RF D.E.S.S. key). The new key fits securely onto the housing and ensures quick connectivity and engine start up on all 2015 Sea-Doo performance series models.

    Sea-Doo performance watercraft are ideal for riders in search of stand out power, styling, acceleration, the ultimate adrenaline rush and a watercraft that empowers them to ride like a pro. The Performance series offers the best power and acceleration of the Sea-Doo line-up, with stunning design and rider centric, performance enhancing technology. Watercraft in this series provide unmatched performance in moderate to rough water conditions, in open water or buoy courses and include race-inspired features such as high-performance Variable Trim System (VTS), adjustable sponsons, specialized seat designs and race-inspired handlebars1.
    The 2015 Sea-Doo Performance series includes five models led by the RXP-X 260, model that changed the definition of watercraft in this family with the T3 hull and Ergolock system, empowering riders to ride like pros with less effort. It also includes the Sea-Doo RXT-X aS 260, RXT-X 260 and RXT 260 models as well as the popular, entry-level performance watercraft, the GTR 215 model.

    2015 SEA-DOO RXP-X 260
    In a class by itself, BRP’s Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 watercraft is the most dominant closed course racing model claiming more world championships than any other runabout model in history over a three year span. The RXP-X 260 model was also the recipient of the prestigious National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Innovation Award, the Red Dot Design Award, and was named 2014 “Performance Watercraft of the Year” and 2012 “PWC of the Year” by PWCToday.com.
    The 2015 Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 model commands attention with new, vibrant Sunburst Yellow & Hyper Silver color scheme making it easy to see who is in the lead. It is the ideal watercraft for closed course racers and performance enthusiasts. The Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 has an ominous visual appeal for the tech minded rider, ingenious hull design and ergonomics that allow riders to realize 100% of their riding potential. The T3 hull design allows the RXP-X 260 model to aggressively lean into corners and penetrate chop better than any of its two-seater counterparts. T3 stands for “tight-turning t-hull” and uses an advanced, dual surface hull design with a unique combination of soft and hard chines, dual axis adjustable rear sponsons and performance trim tabs. This allows the rider to lean further into corners, using more of the available power, turning tighter and faster, leaving the competition’s two-seaters in its wake.

    The revolutionary Ergolock system integrates a narrowing, body-molded racing seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) system and angled footwell wedges, all complementing the lean-in characteristics. With the A.E.S. system, the rider can adjust the handlebar width and grip angle for a perfect upper body connection. The unique RXP-X 260 seat form-fits the rider’s legs, alleviating upper body strain in hard turns, using the leg muscles to lock the rider into the machine, and ultimately the water, better than any other two-seater.BRP’s Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) and Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) systems complete the picture and make the 2015 RXP-X 260 the most feature- and technology-rich two-seater in high-performance watercraft history.
