There are now many of them, you can find for every taste.
The leader in this area is the Canadian company Bombardier (more precisely, BRP - Bombardier Recreational Products, which stood out from Bombardier into an independent enterprise) this year organized for its fans fireworks from various models of Sea-Doo jet skis. It's funny to make it easier to understand the purpose of this or that device, “Bombardiers” compare them with cars!
Take, for example, the new series of jet skis GTX, GTX Limited, GTX SC. On the surface of the water it is entirely BMW-5 or "Jaguars-XJ." You can’t twist the feints on them, but you can effectively race in front of the audience - the spectacle will provide a 185-horsepower supercharged engine.
SIMILAR TO FERRARI
Captures? It's only the beginning! Under the hoods of the new Sea-Doo RXP and RXT, a 215-liter Rotax three-cylinder four-stroke four-stroke engine. with. In terms of specific indicators, it is more important than Ferrari! On smooth water, the RXP or RXT can accelerate over 125 km / h. However, even at this speed, the aquabikes keep their course and are well controlled - the shape of the boats is made according to the “keeled” scheme (this is common to all Sea-Doo jet skis), steering fins along the sides and a well-controlled position of the jet. To tear the Bombardier into a skid, you need to show a fair amount of skill or … recklessness.
It’s more convenient to spin freestyle elements on the lighter and shorter RXP. On a triple RXT, you need skill, but a beginner will cope on a straight line, unless, of course, he is scared. A long jet ski perfectly cuts the wave, jumps out smoothly, keeps itself in flight and gently splops into the water.
The RXP and RXT are not only excellent in driving performance, good and operational. “Bombardiers” made a strong move - closed the cooling system. Previously, the engine was cooled by sea water. Scale, uneven heating, flushing after skating, corrosion. Now everything is like in a car - “Tosol”, thermostat, radiator. The latter in the form of a plate was placed in the aft of the bottom. The radiator is always in the water and therefore cools well. Another function of the radiator plate is the reliable protection of the stern and water jet.
IN RALLY STYLE
Even more interesting solutions in the most unusual jet ski of the season 2005 “Bombardier” Sea-Doo 3D. It was possible to create five jet skis on one platform at once, not similar to each other either in style or in riding techniques. The first is VFRT. The “standing” option is a flat deck and a raised spring-loaded steering column. An unprepared person can easily stand on such a rather wide boat. And it doesn’t matter that he has enough strength for ten minutes of active driving - and how much pleasure he will get from turns and jumps!
Not enough spirit to lay a turn on his feet? Take the saddle out of the steering column and mount it on the platform. Twenty seconds - and the second option is ready - MOTO. A true cross-country motorcycle, only on the water.
For lovers of racing cars - option KART. Automobile landing, steering force, centrifugal force in turns create the complete illusion of driving a car along a good ring road.
There is another convenient position for controlling the jet ski - on the knees. Very stable, with a low center of gravity. You can always get up and cushion on a shallow wave and in jumps. Even more convenient if you install a special saddle on the platform. This is the fourth option - KNEE. The most dizzying somersaults succeed with him, up to a complete immersion and a coup under water.
If you want to get back on your feet, but unload your tired hands, you can raise and fix the steering column on the shock absorber strut. The fifth option is SHOQ, on it on the shoulder any ocean waves.
The speed is provided by a two-stroke two-cylinder 110-horsepower 800-cc Rotax engine. A successful intake design allows the engine to work underwater and turn 3D into a submarine for a few seconds. Unusual device, right? Therefore, designers called him “Subaru-EVO 7” - just as powerful and versatile.
