The 2012 Sea-Doo RXP-X260

2012 Sea-Doo RXP-X260
With the 2012 Sea-Doo RXP-X260, I may be ready to tackle to waves in Baja.

Living on the beach in Baja, I will occasionally look out my window and see someone rushing through the waves on a Jetski, and I’m always envious.   With little exception, they are clearly having more fun than at that moment.   I have put some thought into getting a personal watercraft, but I know next to nothing about them.   But I think I may have found the one I like most, the 2012 Sea-Doo RXP-X260.

Here are the basic specs of the Sea-Doo RXP-X260, although I admit to most being lost on me; a 1503 XHO Rotax 4-TEC engine, Supercharged.   It features the Sea-Doo Direct Drive.   This water speed machine seats 2, and features a near 16 gallon fuel tank, which sounds like enough to easily last all day.

The thing I do get is the design, it’s a beautiful machine.   The RXP-X260 features a really aggressive style, with striking lines that pronounces speed even before you start the engine.   It’s light and well angled.

With a list price of about $17k, it’s one of the more expensive models out there, bringing it more inline with a low-priced car than a personal watercraft.   A big part of me thinks it may be a bit much for a novice like myself, but in the end, it’s just money, and I’m a quick study.


  1. bro its not enough to last even close to a day if ur not just put putting around. if you are looking for a “Personal Watercraft” buy a bigger sea-doo model like the sport, so you can tow tubers and ski’s. This thing is PURE performance, its practically just for racing… don’t waist your money

  2. Is the seat’s shape designed for stand-up riding, how is it for jumping waves in comparison to Yamaha GP? Any info appreciated.
