BRP introduces 2017 Sea-Doo watercraft models
August 17, 2016
BRP (TSX: DOO) has introduced its new Sea-Doo models and a new Rotax Advanced Combustion Efficiency (ACE) power plant. The 2017 Sea-Doo line includes the Sea-Doo SPARK TRIXX, an accessible price-point with new GTS/GTI models and more performance in the mid-range with a GTR-X 230 powered by a new Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine.
“The Sea-Doo watercraft line has never been stronger,” said Anne Bélec, SVP global brand, communications and PAC at BRP. “By offering new models that continue to focus on rider needs such as affordability and efficiency, and of course fun, more people can find the right model for them and make the dream of owning a Sea-Doo watercraft a reality.”
The 2017 SPARK TRIXX model comes equipped with numerous innovations including handlebar with adjustable riser, step wedges and extended-range Variable Trim System (VTS), all of which help riders perform tricks.
2017 Sea-Doo GTS and GTI models are light, fuel-efficient and offer the value of a full-size watercraft on the market. Each features a Rotax 900 HO ACE engine and Polytec hull material.
The Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine is also new to the Sea-Doo lineup for 2017. BRP says thanks to its ACE design, the 1500 HO ACE offers more mid-range performance, produces 15 more horsepower than the previous generation and is optimized for regular fuel instead of premium gas. This new engine also features a low-maintenance supercharger. The Rotax 1500 HO ACE powers the 2017 Sea-Doo GTR-X 230, as well as the GTR 230, WAKE PRO 230 and GTX Limited 230 models.
The Sea-Doo GTR-X 230 watercraft extends the brand’s X-package offering to a new model and includes the exclusive Ergolock system, which allows riders to better connect to the machine during riding.
