BRP announced the launch of its 2012 Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 PWC musclecraft at its Club BRP dealer meeting being held in Montreal, QC this week. The meaner-looking RXP-X 260 is the successor to Sea-Doo’s RXP-X 255, adding new design features including a new T3 lean-in hull design, an Ergolock riding system and iControl technologies.
The RXP-X 260’s ErgoLock system includes angled footwell wedges and a gradually narrowing seat design to better help connect the rider to the watercraft. The unit’s T3 hull features a dual-surface design that responds differently at high or low speeds. The hull consists of soft and hard chines and adjustable sponsons with winglets and trim tabs that are designed to allow the watercraft to better lean into corners, helping to maintain entry and exit speeds after turns.
During a tour of BRP’s design centre in Valcourt, QC, it was revealed that the shark was the inspiration behind the RXP-X 260’s new body design, which features a flowing facet design, ram air intakes and large side grills.
BRP dealers will have access to test all of BRP’s latest products including the RXP-X 260 at the Ultimate Playground located in René-Lévesque Park near LaSalle, QC. The Ultimate Playground will be open to the public from July 16 to 17, as will BRP’s product show at Palais des congrés. The company has also put its products on display along Montreal’s busy Crescent St.
